Cash for Clunkers

It's hard to imagine a Federal program that could provide more stimulus at relatively low costs than the "Cash for Clunkers" program. Perhaps the best benefit of the program is encouraging Americans to get out of their gas guzzlers.

Senator McCaskill (D-MO) opposes $2B in new money for the program but would consider allowing already appropriated stimulus money be moved to this program.

Call Sen McCaskill's office -- (202) 224-6154-- and politely tell her that you support the $2B in new money for the program and that you hope she will reconsider her opposition.

While you're at it, it wouldn't hurt to call Sen Bond (who opposes everything except a tax cut or another drink) --(202) 224-5721 -- and let him know you support the new Cash for Clunkers funding.
