That's very true...

and at its current sales pace it would take over 1,000 years just to pay them back.

Too Funny.

There is a guy on this thread who keeps saying my hero is Joseph Goebbels, who said that if you repeat a lie loud enough ..... blah, blah, blah, blah.

But his little buddy Petey keeps repeating the lie "Obamamobile". He has said it at least 50 times since page 1. It has been shown that Obama wanted to kill the Volt program, and that he didn't sign the credits and subsidies. You know he has read the links. Yet, he keeps repeating.

So, it just goes to prove that Joseph Goebbels was wrong, cuz .... nobody believes Petey. Not even Wifey.

H.R.776 -- Energy Policy Act of 1992 (Enrolled Bill [Final as Passed Both House and Senate]- ENR)

Passed in 1992, signed by George Bush Sr.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z... :

SEC. 303. MINIMUM FEDERAL FLEET REQUIREMENT.

(a) GENERAL REQUIREMENTS-(1) The Federal Government shall acquire at least--
(A) 5,000 light duty alternative fueled vehicles in fiscal year 1993;
(B) 7,500 light duty alternative fueled vehicles in fiscal year 1994; and
(C) 10,000 light duty alternative fueled vehicles in fiscal year 1995.
(2) The Secretary shall allocate the acquisitions necessary to meet the requirements under paragraph (1).
(b) PERCENTAGE REQUIREMENTS-(1) Of the total number of vehicles acquired by a Federal fleet, at least--
(A) 25 percent in fiscal year 1996;
(B) 33 percent in fiscal year 1997;
(C) 50 percent in fiscal year 1998; and
(D) 75 percent in fiscal year 1999 and thereafter, shall be alternative fueled vehicles.

This is good reading. There is much more than this.

H.R. 1424 (110th): Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008.
Signed by George Bush Jr.

Read Sec. 205 in particular. Credit for plug-in's. Oh my, it's really a Bushmobile!!!

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/110/hr1...

TITLE II--TRANSPORTATION AND DOMESTIC FUEL SECURITY PROVISIONS
Sec. 201. Inclusion of cellulosic biofuel in bonus depreciation for biomass ethanol plant property.

Sec. 202. Credits for biodiesel and renewable diesel.

Sec. 203. Clarification that credits for fuel are designed to provide an incentive for United States production.

Sec. 204. Extension and modification of alternative fuel credit.

Sec. 205. Credit for new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicles.

Sec. 206. Exclusion from heavy truck tax for idling reduction units and advanced insulation.

Sec. 207. Alternative fuel vehicle refueling property credit.

Sec. 208. Certain income and gains relating to alcohol fuels and mixtures, biodiesel fuels and mixtures, and alternative fuels and mixtures treated as qualifying income for publicly traded partnerships.

Sec. 209. Extension and modification of election to expense certain refineries.

Sec. 210. Extension of suspension of taxable income limit on percentage depletion for oil and natural gas produced from marginal properties.

Sec. 211. Transportation fringe benefit to bicycle commuters.

This is section 205:

SEC. 205. CREDIT FOR NEW QUALIFIED PLUG-IN ELECTRIC DRIVE MOTOR VEHICLES.

(a) Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit- Subpart B of part IV of subchapter A of chapter 1 (relating to other credits) is amended by adding at the end the following new section:

‘SEC. 30D. NEW QUALIFIED PLUG-IN ELECTRIC DRIVE MOTOR VEHICLES.

‘(a) Allowance of Credit-

‘(1) IN GENERAL- There shall be allowed as a credit against the tax imposed by this chapter for the taxable year an amount equal to the applicable amount with respect to each new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle placed in service by the taxpayer during the taxable year.

‘(2) APPLICABLE AMOUNT- For purposes of paragraph (1), the applicable amount is sum of--

‘(A)$2,500, plus

‘(B)$417 for each kilowatt hour of traction battery capacity in excess of 4 kilowatt hours.

‘(b) Limitations-

‘(1) LIMITATION BASED ON WEIGHT- The amount of the credit allowed under subsection (a) by reason of subsection (a)(2) shall not exceed--

‘(A)$7,500, in the case of any new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of not more than 10,000 pounds,

‘(B)$10,000, in the case of any new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 10,000 pounds but not more than 14,000 pounds,

‘(C)$12,500, in the case of any new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 14,000 pounds but not more than 26,000 pounds, and

‘(D)$15,000, in the case of any new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 26,000 pounds.

Isn't history amazing? Here it is in B&W. Good reading for those who love truth. Terrible for those who keep repeating lies.

All of the above are blamed on Obama.

Oh, it goes way back. Nissan & Toyota were started by the Japanese government because US cars dominated Japan. They hoot and howl about GM & Chrysler being bailed out (Ford was bailed out in 2006), and they don't even know that not only have Nissan & Toyota been subsidized all this time, but they started out as official government companies.

They have both been subsidized since then.

http://www.fourwinds10.net/siterun_data/busin...

This is from the above link:

"HISTORY OF JAPANESE CAR MAKERS: The car market in Japan was monopolized by the American companies until the passage in Japan of the Automobile Act in 1936 when both Nissan and Toyota were created as official car companies. "

This is good reading for those who want to know the truth about car history.

Don’t be a dolt. Why aren’t you squealing about the tax money we just gave the Palestinians? I would much rather see my tax money used here at home.

The Dolt spent 1/35,000 of a dollar on my Volt,(one time). But I spent $200 (each year) to keep his gas tank full. He thinks he's got the short end of the stick.

Oh my!!! Terrorists are killing our troops with our oil money.

http://www.infowars.com/saudi-arabia-uses-al-...

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.

http://washingtonindependent.com/22236/cars

http://www.fourwinds10.net/siterun_data/busin...

I pay tax dollars to subsidize his gas.

http://priceofoil.org/fossil-fuel-subsidies/

$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.
