Ahh, beat me to it. We all seem to forget that w/o Uncle Sam, most of us would have nothing including 90% of the freeways we have, bridges we cross and so on. For something on a nationwide scale, it should be done "nationally" Getting even a handful of states on the same page would take years even if everyone involved was overwhelmingly in favor.roussir wrote: ↑Wed Feb 12, 2020 4:40 pmStates cannot print money (that is, do deficit-funded stimulus/infrastructure investments).

If you want it, tell your state government to do it.
Plus doesn't tesla already have a cross country network of chargers that covers most of the nation?
I didn't buy an EV to drive cross country.
The West Coast Green Highway is a perfect example. Everyone was on board with the idea BIG TIME but different legislature, budget and meeting schedules got in the way and California (a MAJOR pro EV state) fell to the wayside and that is only THREE states. Getting a dozen on the same page?? LOL!!!
The national program proposed is EXACTLY how we should be doing it simply because if they don't do it, it won't get done. Relying on automobile manufacturers to do it? LOL!!
Relying on states to do it? LOL!!
Relying on the current rag tag group of public charging systems to do it? LOL!!
