Re: Congress to raise ev credit?

Fri Oct 15, 2010 5:33 pm

I would love to see the "RED" states just try to secede...... what
a joke! The "something for nothing" crowd could just begin to
truly live what they preach. My comment was not meant to offend
but all we hear about is the state's inability to make ends meet.

Though not a California resident, it is factually true that California gets a very bad deal out of the Federal structure. They are basically subsidizing other states. Last time I looked Pennsylvania was getting a slightly positive deal, probably as a result of the Social Security transfer payments.

Within California, a less gerrymandered legislature and fewer public initiatives would probably help. Californians have, like the rest of the United States of both parties, voted for increased spending and no increased taxes. This is an equation not tolerated by the mathematically inclined Chinese Engineers running the PRC.

I think the ballot initiatives are the worst thing ever in CA. That's alot of the problems. Plus the 2/3s majority to pass a budget (which unfortunately the US Senate has practically adopted)

60 votes to get anything done is not how the Constitution was written.

This will probably not happen if those <self-censored/> take control of congress.
Which <self-censored/> group are you talking about? The politicians?? :evil:
Republicans.. obviously. Whom are only concerned with their rich big oill friend's wallets off the backs of the rest of us.
Gee.....I'm a "Republican", who ordered a leaf, and my main car is a Prius. I don't have any "rich oil friends" with big wallets. I suggest you refrain from stereotyping. (and learn how to spell and use correct grammar :( :( )

Let's not get too flame ridden here. Just remember that whatever your differences are, there are a ton of Chinese happy to see you exacerbate them.

Could you explain the Chinese references? I'm not quite getting them.

When I speak of "Republicans"... I speak of the politicians you vote into office and consistently work against your best interests. They certainly have rich oil friends with big wallets who fund their campaigns.

You as a Republican voter may not feel that way or have rich oil friends per se. I wasn't stereotyping Republican voters - just the politicians... and there are few exceptions... but they are in the very very extreme minority. Unfortunately all the sane Republican politicians seem to be losing all of their primaries because they aren't extreme enough.

NP. Lamar Alexander is one of those exceptions BTW - he's an EV supporter and a Republican Senator. We need sane Republican senators. I fear the Senate (and our political society) is falling into an extreme case of us against them.

Our entertainment based political news and media is magnifying this and making it too much of a game. Our political media and world (and politicians) always seem to focus on our differences and not what brings us together and our common interests. Ah well...

Re: Promoting Electric Vehicles Act of 2010

Merged.

There is no problem getting higher subsidy for EVs. Both parties support it. Afterall many auto manufacturers are in south states and the senators from there will support it. No point imagining Republican opposition ... checkout the senate committee vote on this.

Also oil companies are fine with EV subsidies. They are supporting the legislation.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?
