Who needs a new car?

It seems the Federal government:

“President Barack Obama said the U.S. government will buy 17,600 new, fuel-efficient vehicles from ailing American automakers by June 1.”

Well, I guess if the government needs new ones, might as well buy them. Does it need them though?

“The decision was made to buy the vehicles on the short timetable to help give a boost to the economy, as well as demonstrating the Obama administration’s support of the U.S. auto industry.”

It doesn’t sound like it does to me. But wait, there’s more!

““This is only a first step, but I will continue to ensure that we are working to support the American auto industry during this difficult period of restructuring.””

Which means “I’m going to spend even more of your tax dollars.”
