And people who don't care that all foreign countries subsidize their cars don't understand business.

China subsidizes every single item they sell in this country. They are attacking our jobs and our system of doing business.

Foreign countries subsidize their products to drive our goods into the ground, thus killing American jobs.

When you buy a foreign car, whether it is built in that country, or here, you are buying a car that was subsidized to make it cheaper than an American car.

People think that American cars cost more because of labor costs. They cost more because foreign cars are subsidized, period.

It's ironic that the Southern states that are subsidizing foreign cars built there are in cahoots with those countries to kill American companies and American jobs.

God Bless America.

If the Dolt doesn't drive an American car, he is driving a car subsidized by US tax dollars. All foreign cars built and sold in this country are subsidized by US tax dollars.

I pay tax dollars to subsidize his gas.

$1/35,000 of a dollar ..... once. I couldn't shave a fleck off of a penny small enough to send it to the dolt to pay him back. Wonder if he'll be willing to send me $200 a year I spend to keep his car running. Doubt it.
Dolt probably had no idea.

Yes, other counties subsidize their auto manufacturing sectors.

The United States is no exception.

Yes, China is becoming one of the world's largest economies.(Actually, India will become number one)
Both those countries have learned well their own predatory techniques of captalism.

They learned these techniques from the United States who practised these techniques for a century.

Why make a big deal about subsidies for automakers.
Every one of them gets help from their respective governments.
Some more than others.

The reason why we make a big deal about other countries subsidizing their cars is because the O N L Y time people complain is when it's about the Volt. People who believe that electrics are a good thing don't complain.

The people who hate the future name only the Volt. The Prius is not only lauded as a better car, it is overlooked as being a subsidized car.

Whether the Prius is better or not is a matter of opinion and I can handle that. But to say that the Volt is the only subsidized electric and then to blame Obama is just Joseph Goebbel (see above) and his buddy Petey repeating themselves, over and over.

Fact, the Volt's share of the subsidies was about 12% total. Tesla, Coda, Fisker, and any foreign plug in made in this country also share the subsidy.

It was a one time subsidy. The entire subsidy for all electrics was $11 per tax payer.

Yet, all I ever hear is that the Volt stole thousands of dollars from each tax payer's pocket.

People are getting a little tired of hearing the same lies over and over ..... Joseph.

Now, back to car facts.

This is a great video of Andrew Farah, Vehicle Chief Engineer for the Volt, answering some technical questions about the Volt, such as regenerative braking, future range issues, etc.



Warning!!! There are short clips of happy Volt owners. Those who can't stand happy Volt owners, need not click.

Not all governments build and protect their manufacturing companies as Japan did toyota. In fact some governments do things to hurt their companies, see the US.
