Arrrggghhh! Where do we get these people?!
I read tonight in a local weekly paper this economic nugget about Cash for Clunkers from Candice Miller, a local Republican representative in Congress, “I think that, by anybody’s standards, this has been the best economic stimulus program that the government has enacted.” Later on she continues, “This is going to be a critical component of how we get out of this recession, especially in Michigan. Throughout our nation’s history, it has been auto sales that have pulled our country out of the recessions. Talk to any economist.” [emphasis added]
The article further states without quoting that she sees another upside – a goose to the state revenues through new license and registration fees and increased sales taxes. Now I feel better.
I repeat. Arrrggghhh! Where do we get these people?!
