Cash for Clunkers Needs to Do More

According to the MPG Illusion blog, the Cash for Clunkers Bill, as it is right now, does not go far enough to improve things. I noted the same thing, but my thoughts were rather vague on the subject.

Hopefully, the bill will be either edited or the Senate will prevail using their version before it is passed.
