The extension allows an additional $2 billion in funding to the already $1 billion that apparently already spent. The Senate voted 60-37 to approve the extension late Thursday Evening. It is unknown how long the money will last.

Cash for Clunkers – Governmental Scam to Gain Access to Your Computer

Posted: August 4, 2009 at 5:33 pm by

When the cash for clunkers program was implemented, I did not have much opinion on it. I did not give it much thought, and figured it was a way to get old cars scrapped and to get more environmental friendly cars on the road. On those points I did not have a problem, and would have considered using the program if I had an old car that did not run well, and I was in the position to buy a new car. Today I got an e-mail stating the Cash for Clunkers program is in part a scam for the government to gain access to your computer and your files, legally.
