Sec. LaHood: Cash for Clunkers Will End Before Labor Day

The program was authorized to last through October, and LaHood himself had said an infusion of $2 billion in additional funds should have been enough to keep the program on track through Labor Day.

But the entire $3 billion allocated by Congress for the program is now in danger of running out, with well more than 450,000 claims already having been submitted to the government. The Obama administration has indicated that it will not seek a third round of funding.

and these people want to run our health care?  whats a 2 billion here or there?
