Comments: Stimulus For Foreign Auto Makers

That makes me sick! And what are the most turned in? I hear my Jeep is #2 or 3, but I haven't seen the numbers yet.

Ugh.

I'm curios about a couple of things. The first is how many of these "clunkers" are perfectly good used cars that are perfect for the teenager's first car ( you want something big enough to keep them alive if they do something teenlike) or for the working poor who cannot afford a new car.

My second question, how much energy to it take to scrap the old car and build the new? I'm no scientist but it seems to me that we are getting a net loss out of this and the only ones benefiting are the same people who donated big to the Obama campaign.
