Obama Announces New Electric Car Rebate--$7500...courtesy you and me.

"The electric-car industry would get a boost through improved incentives for car buyers and help for cities in providing vehicle-charging infrastructure - if Congress agrees to Obama administration proposals touted yesterday.

The buyer incentive would change to a $7,500 rebate at the point of sale under the proposal, replacing a tax credit of the same amount, Department of Energy officials told reporters yesterday.

The instant rebate would mean less paperwork and quicker savings for customers at a time when the number of electric-car options is about to increase dramatically.

President Barack Obama has said he wants to see 1million plug-in electric vehicles on the road by 2015, a goal that some industry experts have said is unrealistic."

The powerplant

that generates the electric is still burning shit. This is just more centralization. I wouldn't buy one of these pieces of shit if they gave me $20,000.

Probably Causes Cancer

EMF radiation can be a cause of genetic damage and cancer.

A federal government rebate, in my experience, increases the odds that electric cars are bad for you.

The government should fund a study to prove electric car safety if they want to make sure we pay, and pay, and pay, and pay...

Take my money and give it away for me please. Soon they'll be telling us what we can have and what we can't. 1 steak a month, 2 potatoes a week, 1 bag of rice a week, and one apple a day.

The program would be cheaper

The program would be cheaper if they just bought the cars and handed them out. A person will get $7,500 and to administrate the program it will cost $50k per application.

And I'm probably being conservative.
