    ...or at least wait for the bill to pass!

    Last year I was looking for a new car, and as the senate etc were voting on a stimulus package, I waited. I 'thought' they had completed the bill and signed it into law so I bought a car on February 7th, 2009!

    Alas - the small print just hit me in the head - the Bill was approved but only applies to cars bought after February 16th, 2009 - on the upside - the bill was watered down so I only thought I was getting about a $500 tax break - but still it's$500!!! the small print...and wait for Mr President to sign the bill!!!!!

    Such is life....

    Now to make up for this I want everyone on Hubpages to....hang on that's self promotion....shucks! *grin*
