Talk about billions; the automakers GM, Chrysler and Ford were in Washington this week after driving their hybrids from Detroit to D.C. Anyway, did you hear the news? The Treasury department has run out of serial numbers to print more $100 bills.
So they announced that instead of doing like Argentina and adding more zeros, they are going to change the Treasury Seal to the logos of GM, Chrysler and Ford and print this new money as "CASHBACK NOTES". Then when you buy that new Ford and get $2,500 cash back, they will give you 25 of the new notes. They hope you will just save a few of the CASHBACK NOTES and the government will never have to make them good!
