If You Haven't Traded In Your Clunker For Cash Better Do It Soon
Maybe not much longer
I have some good news for my friend Dari who is a single mom and a new car sales woman in New Jersey. You'll soon be able to have dinner with your children.
Dari can't remember the last workday she got home in time to eat with her children because of the hugely successful Cash For Clunkers program.
Before it was initiated, you could go to nearly any car dealership in the nation and sit down and jaw with the sales people for hours without hardly any interruption. Now at many dealerships across the nation, customers must wait for service as harried sales staff like Dari try to accommodate as many of them as possible. Well, the gold rush may be coming to an end.
The Obama administration could announce as soon as tomorrow that the program is coming to an end. While this might not be so good for Dari's pocketbook, it would let her get off work in time so she can sit down to a nice meal with her kids.
