Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced a $485 billion spending bill to reduce inflation.
Republicans are ruining the climate — right? Consider a few of the outrageous sins and stunts the party of evil perpetrated over the past few days, weeks and months. Oh, oops — all these planet-hating pols are Democrats.
Last week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced an “Inflation Reduction Act” whose $485 billion in spending is largely a giveaway to Big Auto. The bill will give families earning up to $300,000 as much as $7,500 in tax credits to purchase electric vehicles. Cars eligible for the credit can cost up to $80,000.
Electric cars emit less carbon than gas cars, yes. They are also cars (and with the eye-watering $80,000 price “cap” on tax credits, more likely large SUVs). They actually pose more danger to pedestrians, as they are quieter and heavier and accelerate faster than regular cars.
