Detroit blames their problems on Japanese imports when the government bailed them out. I didn't think the "Cash for Clunkers" program, where we trade our own gas guzzlers for a new car, will solve anything. It is a burden on our national debt, and also it doesn't prevent Americans us from replacing them with more fuel efficient Japanese import. Despite the government efforts, we Americans haven't yet changed our habits of purchasing Japanese imports that has better quality. I assume that the government can't imposed restrictions urging us to buy American because of our membership in WTO. Ford is the only one not to dependent on government hangouts. I did questioned the timing of this program during a recession when many of us are unemployed and can't participate in the program.
