I agree with Stossel. This environmental hoopla is politically motivated and presented in a scare tactic way. It is the hype without any true monetary and factual data projected to build a real case. The electric car expense versus payback is a prime example. How is that Chevy Volt selling? Hmm, sort of proves my point...
And you, Joe Biden, belong in a Mental Health Clinic!
Wow, to think 29 voted for this is utterly mind boggling. This should have been a no brainer vote and yet there were no brainers voting...... Simply pathetic.....
You are absolutely correct. Even so, the purchase of this vehicle is very impractical from a $$$$ perspective.
First off, who the hell would buy this overpriced GM junk.. More Government logic ... Cost to operate a Chevy Volt . . . . Eric Bolling (Fox Business Channel's Follow the Money) test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors. For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine. Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles. It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph. According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. So, 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery; not to mention the green-house gas and pollutants required to produce the electricity. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon (average US price, regional costs vary) divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile. A nice gasoline powered car costs about $23,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.... So the Government wants us to pay twice as much, for a car that costs more than 7 times as much to run, and takes 3 times longer to drive across the country..... REALLY ?? Where do I sign!

Wasserman Schultz is one of the reasons I do not like the liberal ilk. They bloviate and show no results!! How's Obamacare doing? How is unemployment reduction doing? How is our foreign policy doing? How's Obama's golf game doing? How's Michelle's trips on our dime doing? Need I say more... They wreak....
Ann Coulter has hit the nail on the head with this. No more immigrants for a while until we straighten out Americans first....
