Argh! Governor Give-Away is at it again:
The State of Illinois is implementing a three-phase instant rebate program to help residents replace older, inefficient appliances with ENERGY STAR® qualified models....

The third phase be similar to the second phase but offer rebates on a smaller number of products. The program will begin at 8 a.m. on September 24, 2010 and run that day so long as funds remain.

Eligible products include

Clothes washers
The State of Illinois can't pay most of its bills, but it can throw $3 million of tax payer dollars away so people can buy appliances???

*Bangs head repeatedly against monitor*

At this point I'd even vote for that wingnut Alan Keyes if it meant getting Quinn out of office. He's killing this state with his freaking "kindness."

Apparently he's been chatting with our esteemed gov out here in MA. They tried this little game out here and ran out of money in 2 hours or something like that - one had to go online and register to get the buy back thing. This was very shortly after the fast and furious failure of the national car buy back program. Do these people never learn???
