Re: Republican tax proposal will terminate $7,500 EV tax credit

As to how credits might be improved, here's Chelsea Sexton's take from last month: https://evchels.wordpress.com/2017/11/15/dont-just-save-ev-tax-credits-fix-them/
Like me, she's a fan of a price cap. Unlike me, she doesn't think there should an income cap.

Chelsea speaks like these rebates will go on forever. Not perfect but I think we should stick with the program as is.
