Congress Proposes ‘Cash For Clunkers’ Program
Morning Edition, January 15, 2009 · The government has given billions of dollars to automakers who need to sell more cars. Now, Congress may soon offer motorists money to buy new vehicles.

If approved, the program would provide vouchers up to $4,500.

I am not sure how I feel about American cars… but I guess I will find out if this bill goes through. Hmmm.
