Car dealers getting stiffed on “Cash For Clunkers”

The federal government has only reimbursed auto dealers for 2 percent of the claims they’ve submitted through the popular “cash for clunkers” program, a Pennsylvania congressman said, calling on the Obama administration to help speed up the process.

This is typical government tomfoolery. According to the Department of Transportation, there are a total of 338,659 rebate requests under the “Cash for Clunkers” program; but only a staff of 225 to review the claims. That’s 1,500 claims per employee currently!

And the government wants to manage health care too………..

    Exactly, this is the problem that needs to be addressed.

    They work for us but we can’t fire them. Terrible.

  2. Thanks for your comment.

    My wife works for a car dealership. She’s the one who submits the paperwork for reimbursement. They have not been reimbursed for any car sales yet. At an average of $4,000 per car, there’s a lot of money left on the table.
