Rest easy, America — your troubles are being addressed aggressively. The president is going to boost the economy by using our money to buy thousands of cars for government employees. Whew!:
President Barack Obama said the U.S. government will buy 17,600 new, fuel-efficient vehicles from ailing American automakers by June 1.
Obama made the announcement Thursday in a statement issued by the White House, saying the General Services Administration will spend $285 million of Recovery Act Funds to purchase the vehicles for the government fleet.
And here’s the kicker:
The decision was made to buy the vehicles on the short timetable to help give a boost to the economy, as well as demonstrating the Obama administration’s support of the U.S. auto industry.
That’s government-speak for “we don’t need them.”
