Free $21,000 Eco-Cars, Compliments of the Taxpayer
Big Government has tried repeatedly to promote eco-friendly vehicles. It hasn’t helped that for the most part only posturing moonbats with more money than they know what to do with have any use for these overpriced, underpowered deathtraps. But there is one group other than Hollyweird actors willing to drive them — people so broke they will take whatever they can get. Of course, given how expensive the cars are, someone else has to be forced to pay for the them…
The California Air Resources Board is now embarking on a program that would help poor people buy energy-efficient vehicles. In one scenario posed by the agency, a “voucher” might even pay the full price for a Nissan Leaf, an electric car with an MSRP above $21,000, or for used cars with lower price tags.
The objective of handing out free $21,000 moonbatmobiles at taxpayer expense is not only to save the flourishing polar bears from the imaginary global warming menace, but to promote “transportation justice.” Yes, the Marxist bureauweenies behind the idea actually use that term.
The liberal looting spree won’t stop until America has been completely exsanguinated.
