    Yes, we should instead be giving taxpayer money to oil companies so they don’t raise the price of gas.

    oops

    And your boy (bush) said $55 per barrel oil made drilling subsidies unnecessary. Oil stands at 102 per barrell.

    I have yet to determine if any Volt caught fire outside of a government crash test. Yet the GOP has seized this issue and distorted it. With the global warming we will next need the Aqua-car.

    Well, I don’t agree that oil companies should be getting a subsidies… you’ll never hear a disagreement with you there. No organization (private corporation) should ever get artificial support to stay up. But when you’re talking oil companies getting a few cents out of every gallon of gas profit compared to the double-digit taxes levied on every gallon of gas.. something’s off. And when you accuse those companies of gouging consumers and say what the government is doing is fine, something is screwed up. Government is the biggest consumer of taxpayer money, and we think it’s just fine? That’s mesed up.

    The tax on gas should have started going up 40 years ago. By now it should be at least a buck over what it is. With the money we could have:
    1. Maintained and improved our infrastructure.
    2. Reduced our dependence on imports.
    3. Moved people into more reasonable vehicles.
    4. Stop people from trying to buy McMansions
    5. Reduce road gridlock.
    6. Improve our deficit.
    All assuming of course that the money would not have been diverted to pay for useless wars.

    If the republicans would have had their way, not only would we have a dead economy (thanks to the republicans) we would have NO car industry either!

    I wonder how many other companies Obama can sell cars too to improve the numbers. You do know Obama sold GE half the inventory of the Volt to GE. While he was in Brazil for Spring Break. While checking out Soros oil rigs that came from the gulf because Obama shut them down in the gulf. We are to be Brazil “biggest customer” Maybe that is why Obama also shut down the Canada Pipe line?
    Obama also told us before he was elected that gas prices need to rise for our own good.
    And then there are all the magic green jobs that where to save us. 80% of the money went to companies that where fleeced by Obama donors!

    Here is a new wrinkle, Get this the Volt Buyers so far have been the dreaded 1% and they are getting a tax credit of $7,500 to buy this “all electric” car. Maybe some of those that occupy space should go down and protest a dealership.

    @comicgos

    Then why did Obama just save the car Unions and not the secured creditors of GM? I mean if the guy wanted to save a car company then why give the impression that if you invest in the car company even though your are the 1st to be paid, Obama will bail out his donors 1st and to H with the rest of ya. Why would anyone want to invest when Obama takes on that kind of attitude toward the car company he now has the tax payers owning?

    Ford is doing quite nicely without Obama’s help.

    ’Tis a tale of a poorly-thought out government-subsidized car that costs the taxpayers five times a s much as it sells for, built strictly to pay off the UAW.

    Yak, yak, indeed.

    Just plug your years and say la la la la la, like a little girl who’s being told something she doesn’t want to year.

    This strip misleads because it tells only part of the truth, which is that by saving the domestic auto industry, Obama saved about a million jobs, and that the auto industry is now strongly profitable. It’s an example of a major success and it is those like Romney who said the auto industry should be put to death who were proved wrong.

    And the Volt will have no effect on the economy, that’s ridiculous. What will have an effect on the economy is continued oil dependency, with all its hidden costs, beginning with the fact that Iran is using oil money to finance its acquisition of nuclear weapons.

    This is why I don’t like McCoy. He’s dishonest. He sets out to mislead.

    The Volt and the subsidies both predate Obama. Blame congress and GM if you like, but please stop making stuff up out of thin air. And Harley, your conspiracy theories are getting really weird, and completely implausible. Are you okay?

    WHAT AM I MAKING UP!
    Obama before he was elected told us that gas prices should be higher for our own good. FACT
    Obama went to Brazil for Spring Break. One of the heads of GE was with him. After that GE pledged to buy half the Volt inventory. GE also has the contract to put in Volt plugs. This is all FACT!
    Obama shut down the gulf after the scare mongering of the green weenies over a little leak. Brazil got oil rigs that where in the Gulf. Soros is a big investor in Brazil Oil. And Obama did tell them “We will be your best customer” http://www.examiner.com/finance-examiner-in-national/obama-to-brazil-we-will-buy-your-oil-after-giving-you-2-billion-to-drill-it

    WHAT AM I MAKING UP???
