So Now What Gives?

I read that Congress has indeed allotted $2Billion more for the "Cash for Clunkers" deal, but I also read there has been a major glitch, and I'm thinking that so-called glitch is actually rather strategic. It seems only 2% of the "Cash for Clunkers" vouchers have been redeemed by the government, meaning 98% of the "Cash for Clunkers" deals have left the car dealerships in two binds. One, they aren't getting their money that has already been credited to the deal, and two, now they are stuck with vehicles that cannot be resold, but must be destroyed. Kind of makes me wonder if this is how several more dealerships will be closed. Not only has our government managed once again, to not keep up with it's word, it's given the go ahead to continue the "deals" and it's rejecting many of the dealership applications for small errors in completing the forms. Now, isn't that a surprise? I'm really beginning to wonder why any small or privately owned business even keeps trying. Perhaps these smaller or privately owned businesses stay simply because they can't afford to go overseas or outsource. It can't possibly still be, "in pursuit of the American dream." This situation kind of reminds me of when Pharaoh just kept demanding more product, but provided less to work with.
Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished. Torah of Holy Scripture
