Thank Gawd the President strong-armed wimp Eric Cantor and was able to get the disaster funds Joplin needed. Leave it to the current crop of teabaggers to tell those suffering to go f themselves. It will be an inpiring speech by a great President.

Subject: FIRST GOOD ESTIMATES OF RUNNING A CHEVY VOLT ----

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 hold 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.

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.

Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine
only that gets 32 mpg.

$3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg =$0.10 per mile.

The gasoline powered car cost about $15,000 while the Volt
costs $46,000.

So Obama wants us to pay 3 times as much for a car that
costs more than 7 times as much to run and takes 3 times as long to drive across country.

REALLY?
He's a real winner. You have to be a real dunce to be behind a dufus like that.
