Cash for Clunkers

Just Say NO to Another Cash for Clunkers Program, Let Your Voice be Heard!
 
The Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS), better known as "Cash for Clunkers" was a $3 billion program, enacted in 2009. It had a negative effect on the automotive repair industry as consumers were offered credit, in the form of vouchers, to replace qualifying older vehicles with new ones.
 
Recently, one of the major American automobile manufacturers started pushing for another Cash for Clunkers program, and it's gaining steam. Presuming this program goes into effect, many of the vehicles you should be repairing the next couple of years will be gone. If you oppose this program, click on the ASA link below and let your voice be heard.
