Buck's new big idea is foolish

So what is Buck's new big idea, give a tax credit so local car dealers can sell more cars that people can't afford to buy or keep, while criticizing the plan that President Obama is trying to put together that would give tax cuts to low- and middle-income families?

Actually, to sell more cars to people who can afford them and can get financing, all the manufacturers and dealers need to do is reduce the price of the cars - heck, they aren't moving anyway and why should the car industry be exempt from what everyone else has to do when they sell a car, a house or a piece of furniture that does not move at the price asked for. You reduce the prices.

Why should the government subsidize inflated car pricing and dealership greed? Maybe Buck hasn't heard the news - more and more people across the country are letting their insurance lapse on their cars so they can put groceries on the table.
