In the past, I relied on solid used cars for my transportation needs. I would jog around town and if I saw a car that looked like a good deal, I would buy it even if I didn't need the car.

I was able to purchase good cars for my children that got them reliably through college.

Now I'm wondering if my supply is going to dry up? Is this "Cash for Clunkers" going to hurt the poor who can't afford to buy a new car from the dealership?

What about the dealerships who drew down their inventories? Chrysler couldn't make cars while they were in bankruptcy.

Their lots lack the vehicles that are in demand while foreign-made car lots are full.

It just seems that those who are in charge in Washington just aren't making good decisions. Why am I asking the questions and not them?
