Massive Fail– Cash for Clunkers Cost Taxpayers $24K Per Car

Oh yeah.  I have faith in these fools handling health care correctly.

It would have been cheaper to give them away free.

CSM reported the news today.

American taxpayers paid a lot of cash for those clunkers: $24,000 for each new car sold, according to a study released Wednesday.

That’s a lot of money, especially when the so-called “cash for clunker” stimulus program offered only a maximum $4,500 in cash for each person who traded in an old gas-guzzler and bought a new car.

The government could have done almost as well by just giving away cars for free, instead of creating an elaborate incentive program, according to an analysis by the automotive information firm Edmunds.com in Santa Monica, Calif.
