Now we hear the White House is looking to bump the bribe to purchase a Volt to $10,000 from $7,500. It's really amazing. Once again the free market plays no role, and then the emperor sees wonder and beauty and we're all supposed to fall in line. Not so ironically this is a bribe that lines the pockets of rich liberals, the key demographic buying Volts. Those so-called Middle Class taxpayers the president is always talking about protecting are footing the bill so the elite can meet at the Vineyard and toast to their commitment to saving the planet. Soon they may be able to fuel up their private jets with a friendly fossil-based gas.
If 10,000 Volts are sold this year it would cost taxpayers $100.0 million. If President Obama's goal of 1,000,000 Volts is reached by 2015, folks driving Ford F-150's will fork over $10.0 billion.
