Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program HARMED the environment!

Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program had 2 purposes:
1. Help the U.S. economy
2. Help the environment

Well, we already know that Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program was an administrative fiasco and wasted $3 billion of American taxpayer dollars. So, it certainly didn’t help the U.S. economy.

Now, we know that “Cash for Clunkers” actually HARMED the environment! By focusing on car shredding instead of car recycling, the “Cash for Clunkers” program “produced tons of unnecessary waste while doing little to curb greenhouse gas emissions.”

Obama’s “Cash for Clunkers” program impressively spent $3 billion to harm the environment. Shouldn’t there be an investigation?
