Was the Cash for Clunkers program a good idea or a bad idea?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 25, 2009
“I think it was a bad idea because as a taxpayer, I didn’t appreciate my tax dollars being used for someone else to buy a car.”
“It was a good idea … it helped keep jobs at the local automobile manufacturer (GM’s Fairfax plant) and brought in new jobs to the state of Kansas. ”
“I think it was good for some people … if it helps you get a new vehicle, cool.”
“I think it was beneficial for a lot of people.”
