'Cash for Clunkers:' One senator thinks it's welfare for the rich (USA Today)
Apparently, too many Mercedes-Benz, Lincolns and Lexus luxury barges are showing up on Cash for Clunkers lists. Now one senator wants to make reauthorization of the program, costing taxpayers another $2 billion, contingent on making sure only lower-income people benefit.
Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, would limit the program to individuals with adjusted annual gross income of less than $50,000 or joint filers earning less than $75,000, the Washington Post reports. It's one of several amendments likely to get voted down.
Yea... he was voted down. No limits, luxury cars are still traded for 'clunkers'.
