Your Voucher is Coming - Thank You Lee Terry!
Yes, the house yesterday passed HR 2751 that will give you a either a $3,500 or $4,500 voucher when you trade in that gas guzzler for a vehicle that gets better mileage. We're not quite sure what this will cost the American public and we still don't see any provision that prevents us from buying that $9,000 Kia Rio when we trade in our gas guzzler, so apparently the bill might not even help Chrysler Fiat or Government Motors or God forbid a private American auto manufacturer like Ford.
Now, when you thank your Congress for this vote, keep in mind that Lee Terry voted for the bill while Adrian Smith and Jeff Fortenberry. While we certainly not be left behind at the voucher line, we wonder why Terry voted for this increased government spending?
