I'd rather have that then have the credit increase to 10k as that won't change the deficit at all...you'd just get the money at time of sale instead of having to wait.

No, because people that do not owe taxes will get rebates so it wont be funded by tax revenue.

I'm still amazed that a state as bankrupt as California is still
paying out $$$ for anything.....

True, but I think it's still a zero-sum-game, because the EV aspirant could simply switch to being a lessee, resulting in the rebate being collected by the leasing company. Might as well provide that rebate to the car's owner (the driver not the lessor). Short of people who won't lease out of principal ... the end result is the same. And I think the effect of such a large rebate will make "leasing believers" out of those who normally only buy (that would be me).

Check this old thread.

The increase in credit is dead.

Handouts are routinely given to Big Oil (just to mention one) without "patriots" taking up the streets with misspelled signs and funny hats.
It's just a matter of picking one recipient instead of another.

Well - freaking nothing is made in America anymore. That's why. Everything... and I mean EVERYTHING is made in Asia.

Try buying a toy that's not made in Asia.

Try buying ANYTHING that's not made in Asia. Things that aren't are $$$.

It's ironic that most Japanese cars are made in the US and all US cars are made in Canada or Mexico.

The political process in the USA is basically a matter of who gets a piece of the pie. Spoils are distributed via both parties and the country has no long term interest in any of those distributions. It is an anomaly that there are EV credits at all. Grab them while you can.

Excuse me. Actually the CA Economy would have a surplus if we did not pay for the majority of "Red" states. :arrow: Simple Fact -76% of "Red" states SPEND more money than they collect in Federal Taxes! The worst "Red" state is North Dakota which spends $2.03 for each Federal tax dollar it collects, Mississippi spends $1.84, Alaska spends $1.82... it goes on and on... :!: CA only SPENDS .81 cents of each dollar it collect from us fine residents. The other .19 cents per dollar from the fifth largest economy in the world is then mostly given to "Tea Party States". I am thinking CA should stop doing this!!! Congratulations however, Oregon and Florida spend $1.00 for each dollar they collect. These two states are not exactly saving anything but also NOT asking CA for handouts.
