Senate Rejects 'Cash-for-Clunkers' Aid to Charities

The Senate voted to add $2 million to the $1 billion "Cash for Clunkers" program, but it rejected an amendment proposed by Sen. Tom Coburn to allow people to donate their "clunkers" to charities.

The program offers vouchers worth up to $4,500 for drivers trading their vehicles in for more fuel-efficient vehicles, and it currently requires all vehicle trade-ins to be destroyed.

Several news outlets report that charities aren't cheering.

Here's a video from the Associated Press:

Lets hope that caring christian republicans think on helping poverty stricken with vehicles.Even ssi have trouble saving money. Start up fundsnever given to them. Furniture, basic stuff. That idea was for destruction of older vehicles. Not the poor. Money for destruction? Hope for nice homeless shelters. Decent prisons-mobs form cause of bad consitions. Violent cons happen. Kid safety focused on. Protest unrighteous communist politicians. In china -over 200,000. Russia- over 50,000. In Usa- some racist,bully cons,drug cartel. There are thousands of anti christ. Also quit communist politician supporters if you have enough help. Self support is what God wants. Ignorant churches? Help your local sanctified. Let the most righteous be in power of the church.Righteousness not selfrighteous or selfcentered. Listen for the rapture. Smuggle informa. Create Jesus christ nation groups. My christ nations motto is true christians help true christians! Psal99:9-outside praY.col 3:11. 1 corinth 14:26. Romans 3:23-God will work with usRev 12:9-torments us. And fools us. Be ready for evil armys. Thanks again.
