Question Their Patriotism: NY Auto Dealers Pull Out of 'Cash for Clunkers' Fiasco

Damn greedy car dealers. How dare they expect to be reimbursed! Why, this is downright un-American!
A New York dealership group says hundreds of its members have left the Cash for Clunkers program, citing delays in getting reimbursed by the government.

The president of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association says about half its 425 members have stopped offering rebates from the program because they can no longer afford them.

Mark Schienberg says the group's dealers have been repaid for only about 2 percent of the clunkers deals they've made, leaving many short on cash.
Says so much about the future of government-run healthcare, doesn't it?
