My Chevy Volt Quest Continues

(Posted by Dannytheman)

The news that GM will be calling back, instead of a recall, of 8000 Chevy Volts shows me something.
It shows me that they know why they catch on fire, and now finally have a fix.
But in reading a bit further I see a Congressman AND Chevy Dealership Owner, Mike Kelly (R) of Butler, PA introduced HR 3768.
HR 3768 would eliminate the tax break of $7500 dollars that buyers of the Volt receive. He's a smart guy, and better businessman!

          While our nation borrows 42 cents on every dollar, taxpayers are paying for an electric vehicle tax credit that has cost tens of millions of dollars, and that largely benefits upper-income   Americans. According to General Motors Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson, the average income of a Volt owner is $170,000 a year."
"I introduced legislation to repeal the $7,500 electric vehicle tax credit because, quite simply, our nation can no longer afford to subsidize vehicles that not only lack market demand, but whose safety has been called into question. In addition to the Chevy Volt, which is currently under federal investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after the batteries of three crash-tested Volts caught on fire, the safety of Fisker's electric vehicle has been recently scrutinized as well."
No Market Demand and Safety Risk.  Yup, I agree.  But then again, I've been saying this for months!
