Obama’s Economy In Action!
Data Shows Cash For Clunkers
Was An Epic Debacle

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/10/2014 5:26:38 AM

“Cash for Clunkers,” the 2009 Obama administration stimulus program designed to spend $2.85 billion to jumpstart the auto industry, turned out to be a complete disaster — for the auto industry. In the minds of Obama’s team of advisers and economists, the program made total sense, of course. The plan was to dangle a $4,500 credit to persuade car owners to trade in their older automobiles for new cars with better fuel efficiency. It would stimulate an economy then in the midst of a deep recession. As a bonus, it would mean less oil consumption and cleaner-running cars. The law of unintended

Since Barry´s objective is to ruin the economy, his program worked perfectly.

One other consequence of the program was that the "clunker´s" were destroyed and not sent to auto junkyards for people to use parts from for their cars. Destroyed.

Gumbo at his best. The flying monkeys, Nan from Fran on down to the newest, the fainting fan, All goo goo eyed over this brilliantly ridiculous plan. At the time persons outside the country were laughing their heads off. ´They had never heard of anything so crazy" Nan, sat at the table holding a press conference telling her listeners this was the GREATEST idea since sliced bread. In fact, so great, it was requested Congress allocate much more to the stupid program--dummies ran out of money. Congress, being the adults they were said The funds are gone. Don´t remember if they allocated a smaller dollar amount than needed, but they would not throw away the amount of money requested by the group of like-thinkers. Just as borrowing more money to spend and pay down debt, both plans were for the dummies who never actually lived in the business world. At the time when speaking to these ´folks´, the ignorant just wouldn´t/couldn´t understand. They, like Nan, had no clue what stimulus, and welfare checks actually were. Apparently, they have never had to do a balance sheet and the only books they knew to keep would be their own diary.

College graduates? Blah!! What is being taught there these days? Just cause one went to university does not necessarily mean they know everything. Just enough of nothing to get elected to high office.

Not only did it take parts off the market, it also took used cars that could still be driven off the market. These are the type cars kids could afford (or at least those lucky enough to have a job). I just bought my own clunker (little 16 year old Corolla with 145,000 miles)to run back and forth to work - gets 25-30 mpg vs my Escape that was getting about 18 mpg for the same commute. I love my SUV but am enjoying this little clunker, too.

#8 is correct, it took many good solid used cars off the market, making it damn near impossible for me to find one for my wife when her car bit the dust at 200K miles. I refuse to pay these outrageous prices for a new car.

What the libs don´t get is that wealth --- unearned, inherited, etc. excepted --- is a measure financial prowess and priority. Give a poor man a good bank balance and you still have a poor man, but now one with unearned wealth still making poor financial decisions, just with more money to play with and waste. Charity, not redistribution, is the minimal, temporary fix for poverty which is, importantly, consistent with human nature. Redistribution appeals to the worst in human nature, a sense of entitlement.

But redistribution will get you more votes.

Per wiki...
´´At the end of the program Toyota accounted for 19.4% of sales, followed by General Motors with 17.6%, Ford with 14.4%, Honda with 13.0%, and Nissan with 8.7%. It led to a gain in market share for Japanese and Korean manufacturers at the expense of American car makers, with only Ford not taking a significant hit. Meanwhile, Japan´s own program excluded U.S. cars´´

Edmunds calculated that only 125,000 of the 700,000 program sales were incremental. This makes the program even more fabulously expensive.

While of no importance to the elitists running the show, the usable miles junked on those clunkers was an enormous loss of value to the nation, plus the disruptions to the used car market cited by other poster.

The environmental advantages of the program remain a laughably expensive joke on us all.

#1 cash for clunkers vehicle? Jeep Grand Cherokee. $4500 was high resale value for many of them at that moment.The bodies were often in decent shape...soo...the engines were destroyed, every used motor on the market bought up and installed then the same cars put back on the market. Used 4.0 engines went from about $700 to several $K in a matter of months. The price of the used GC´s collapsed....(I had two at the time that I wanted to sell, one I needed and engine for first.It took me over a year to find a decent engine for less than 2K, I had to have it shipped from RI to OH, in the meantime market prices dropped nearly 2K)
Today? The price has gone up above the cash for clunkers/previous market level for the same age vehicles. Why? Brokers are buying up every one they can find and shipping hundreds at a time to the Middle East. Jeep GC´s regularly last 300,000 miles +

"Cash for Clunkers" was just another give-away for two "good causes" - the environment and the American economy. Politicians love to give away free stuff - and not just the Democrats. Republicans just put on a sour face while it passes - protesting they had no choice. Who came up with the Medicare expansion into prescription drugs, for example. And who is now trying hard to give away "open borders" access via "immigration reform"?

BTW: The Clunkers legislation passed the House by a vote of 298 to 119; Senate by 91–5...I´d call that fairly bi-partisan.

Another plan aimed at hurting poor people. Reducing the number of cheap cars, increases the price of cheap cars. Poor people end up losing private transportation, and relying on ´public transportation´.

Good for greens, good for liberals, bad for the poor.

Because the car industry has long been a total recycling industry, this half baked policy from the bowels of the academic ghetto did major damage to America. It was the equivalent of paying someone to beat yourself up.

All those useable and recyclable engines killed by the official democrat cocktail were not available to the lofos [at least the ones that didn´t have a Dem gig, thus needing them] that usually purchase such engines from auto recyclers.

Instead they went to China for pennies on the dollar.

Everyone wins...except America.

In my area the majority of CFC purchasers were people secure in their jobs, financially stable and possessed good credit ratings. Those are the very same people who here, take care of and maintain their vehicles, regardless of age. Those people who drive real crap cans, they are not and were not able to purchase a brand new car. So here, the crap cans stayed on the road while the best of older cars and trucks were destroyed by the obama plan. This led to a situation that the quality of lower priced used vehicles, tanked significantly and is still being felt in the industry. Who buys lower priced vehicles? Primarily people who are low income and can not afford to spend more.

CLAYTON, Missouri -- Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the white Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government meeting Tuesday. The group renewed calls to remove the county prosecutor investigating the case and vowed political retaliation against an elected official tied to the prosecutor. The demand for officer Darren Wilson´s arrest and the recusal of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney began with the final utterance of the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the St. Louis County Council meeting. "For all," crowd members shouted, emphasizing the second word, as the pledge concluded with,

Worried the pearly gates won´t have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back. Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse. On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel.

Federal authorities have charged an upstate New York man with trying to persuade two others in the United States to join the Islamic State, or ISIS, the terrorist group wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria that U.S. officials have been outspoken about for weeks. Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, of Rochester, also plotted to kill U.S. soldiers who had returned from Iraq, federal prosecutors announced today. Last year, two FBI informants began building relationships with Elfgeeh, who -- not realizing they were working with the FBI -- encouraged them to go overseas and join terrorists in Syria, prosecutors allege in court documents.

And it could be rejuvenated if Scotland breaks away from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, which is leading the campaign for Scotland to vote yes in Thursday´s vote on independence, has been advised over the years by separatists in Quebec, a French-speaking province where two referendums on independence failed, though the last "Non" was narrow. Polls suggest the outcome in Scotland will be close. A vote by Scotland to separate from

How perfectly Clintonian: “While a crowd of several thousand Democrats waited on a sloping, grassy field below, Mrs Clinton, her husband and Senator Harkin staged a mini-grilling of steaks for the press at a single barbecue grill in a fenced-off enclosure, framed by a handsome tree and a picnic table filled with some patient Iowans. Mrs Clinton gamely posed, pretending to grill a steak that had been pre-cooked for her.” Remember all those relentless media references to George W.

Mike Huckabee is leading the Republican presidential race in Iowa. And not by just a point or two: in a new CNN survey, the former Arkansas governor, winner of the 2008 Iowa caucuses, is at 21 percent, with his closest GOP pursuer, Rep. Paul Ryan, nine points behind. Rand Paul is 14 points back, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush 15 behind. Few frontrunners choose not to run. And when Huckabee, not yet a candidate and officially undecided, invited a group of reporters to meet with him at a hotel outside Washington Monday, he certainly looked like a man preparing to

When Senator Ted Cruz delivered the keynote address at last Wednesday’s inaugural In Defense of Christians Summit in Washington, D.C., he was expected to place a much-needed spotlight on the plight of the ancient and persecuted Christian communities of the Middle East. Instead, under the guise of supporting Israel, Cruz placed the spotlight squarely on himself, and by so doing inflicted untold damage to the cause of Christianity’s survival in the Middle East. There’s been some misinformation about exactly what Cruz said to the crowd and how it was received. (You can see for yourself here.) First Cruz offered a few strong remarks

Now, in what he has said is likely his final year, Mr. Holder has claimed broad authority to do just that in a case unlike any other. The Justice Department intervened late Friday in a defamation lawsuit against United Against Nuclear Iran, a prominent advocacy group that pushes for tough sanctions against Tehran.
