Cavuto asked Knollenberg: "When the housing industry CEOs come to you and say, 'You know, [if] we go under and all the ancillary businesses the dishwasher manufacturers, the washer-and-dryer manufacturers, the Lowe's and the Home Depots that vastly depend on our being alive and vibrant if we go under, there's hell to pay. And then the textile manufacturer comes to you and says, 'If we go down, there's hell to pay.' And on and on and on we go. Where do you draw the line with our money?"
"It is not your money," said Knollenberg.
Cavuto screamed back, "It is! It is taxpayers money!"
Knollenberg claimed dealers are not selling cars right now because "there's no credit to get."
He explained, "If we could just remove that problem, and this is what we're trying to do, then we'd be in the position to sell cars."

And the seat you're occupying won't be yours anymore in 2010, RINO!
He was defeated. Thank the Lord.
Yeah, it is pretty hard to believe, but this guy was from MI after all. Further, it appears that he was just replaced by a Democrat from a district the Republicans had held since forever. He has probably been a RHINO for years.
Since 2005, I have felt more and more like I was living in the twilight zone. The country at this stage bears little resemblence to the one I grew up in. The insanity gets worse every day. It could be this is just part of getting older, but I think its more than that.
Oh, I missed a good one today! Thanks for posting. The arrogance of that Rino is palpable, even through the article. Cavuto is not one to back down, he’s a smart man with a great show.
I'm contemplating taking steps to no longer pay taxes after watching this. Outrageous!!
700 billion is in play. Anyone and everyone has an obligation to get some.
Even the taxpayer.
Go get yours.
You really don’t think government or your fellow taxpayers care do you - look who they voted into office.
The only decent, thoughtful personality on Fox any more, IMO.
He may call himself a Republican but I have to say there are some really (I'll be nice here) bad ones. And I do have an ulcer that I'm sure has been brought on by all this so-called election.
I feel like I have been discriminated against and there is no one to fight for my rights.
If we stand true to our principles, eventually the country will come around.
At least, that worked for the Marxists. Look at Obama.
I personally said a few things to him that might endanger my posting privs if I repeat them here.
That's just an appetizer.
It's a lot more than that. It's NEA- and media-driven social decay.
It's the Marxists, destroying everything they touch, defiling what they cannot destroy, and defaming what they cannot defile. It's the Dresden School at work, through American channels of instruction and information, jamming us with a propagandistic death-message stream intended to derange, demoralize, disarm, and kill.
Neil Cavuto has a lot of sense, it’s refreshing to watch him fight the good fight. Too bad he seems to be the exception these days.
Knollenberg claimed dealers are not selling cars right now because “there’s no credit to get.”
I thought the latest give away of MY MONEY solved thsi problem.
You just need to give some more money. Come on, give it up.
I phoned both of his offices this morning. His Washington office hung up on me after they asked whether I lived in his district and I admitted that I didn’t. His Farmington Hills office was much more cordial and pretended to take my contact info.
Mark Levin says it’s not $700 billion... it’s $3.4 trillion. Why not? A trillion here, a trillion there, pretty soon...
