Biden To Force EVs on Americans

This is insane. EVs are perfectly fine for some people in some scenarios. I’d consider one as a second car, but I take too many road trips to make it sensible as a primary vehicle. Americans aren’t stupid. We know how to evaluate a new product and see if it will work for us. Americans are exceptional at adopting new things when we like them. Biden’s overlordship is just making cars inaccessible for the middle and lower classes.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday unveiled the toughest rules to date for automobile emissions in an effort to push more Americans to purchase expensive electric vehicles.


The strict new pollution limits would require 67% of all new vehicles sold in the U.S. by 2032 to be electric, which is about 10 times as many as are currently sold and is far above the president’s previous commitment to have EVs make up 50% of cars sold by 2030.


But Americans aren’t quite sold on the deal, according to a new Gallup poll released on Wednesday, citing the high cost of EVs as the main reason for not purchasing one.

And it’s worth noting that the EV car craze is a boon for China. They sure are getting a great return on their 10% for the big guy at our expense.

    And who cares if their side of the world pollutes itself silly manufacturing all this stuff, right? America is cleaner now anyway, for now.

    Don’t forget that Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants also imposed similar regs on trucks, both medium- and heavy-duty.

    Cannot happen with the electric grid we have now, and cannot happen in 20 years, either.

    Apparently, Senile Joe Biden also wants electric tanks in the military.
    How moronic can you get?
