Government money is not free

We cannot stand when some one say that it is just government money. The problem with that statement is the government has no way to earn money except through taxes which means it is our money. Therefore, when you hear that American taxpayers will be paying over 30k for each vehicle sold. When you do the math, it cost $24,000 per vehicle that was sold under the government’s “Cash for Clunkers” auto program. A study reported that of the 690,000 vehicles sold under the program only around 125,000 of the sales could be credited directly to the Cash-for-Clunkers program. The balance would have happened with out the program. The report average cost for a vehicle was only $26,915.Remember the government money set aside for this program was three billion dollars. We just want to make the point again that money is coming out of your taxes so it is your money. We understand the taxes have not gone up since President Obama has taken office but he has tripled the deficit and has admitted to cost over runs in Social Security and Medicare so the higher taxes hammer will fall it is only a question of when.
