They have had problems getting reimbursements, but there is a 30+ page rulebook and if it's not followed to the letter, there is no reimbursement. The claims that haven't been reimbursed so far were due to them screwing up, not the govt.
A 30 page rule book just for buying a car? I can't wait to see the tome for health care.
You can't wait? Just find your health insurance policy right now and compare it!
I can't wait for health care reform to do away with all of the rescission policies that probably take up a page or two of that policy. Hell, credit card reform has already done away with the double-cycle billing and universal default provisions in most people's credit contracts.

Actually it is 136 pages. It covers the requirements for dealers to make a claim on a vehicle and the rules for dealers to enter into this partnership with the federal government. Skim through it and then let me know if it looks bloated or if it reads like a comprehensive legal document to oversee the efficient spending of $3B taxdollars. (It's 136 pages double spaced and the text size is large, with a summary, contents pages and contract forms too ... although maybe too light for John Boehner to dramatically drop to the floor )
I helped my Mom take advantage of it last weekend. She is now driving a new Volvo C30 instead of the 91" Nissan Xterra that was a stick with no electric anything and 112,000 miles on it and no air and the liner was coming down. Sticker price was $28,000 and I used my Costco account which automagically brought the sticker to $750.00 below invoice... minus $3500.00 for the clunker and another $2000.00 back from manufacturer. Sweet. If it hadn't been for Cash for Clunkers and Costco.. she would be driving a Toyota Scion (the boxy one). Nothing wrong with that but my Moms in her mid 60s and it's great to have a classy car at that age. Any age, actually. She agreed. Paid cash... done deal.
