    Stabenow Blowing More Taxpayers Coerced "Government Money"

    In football lingo... Michigan's Senatorial Fullback of William "Refrigerator" Perry proportions is running the alleged "green jobs" ball up the middle for Team Obama and his Government Motors Volt.
    The Lansing Democrat unveiled the Charging America Forward Act -- a bill that would authorize the U.S. Energy Department to award another $2 billion in grants "for the manufacturing of advanced batteries and components, and provide facility funding awards" for vehicle batteries, hybrid electrical systems and components.

    The bill would include a provision to make it easier for electric vehicle owners to quickly use a government tax incentive.

    Isn't that just nice of her thighness?  Another $2,000,000,000.00 in additional Democrat "investment" money that our nation doesn't have.  At least her immenseness named her proposal appropriately as the Charging America Forward Act.  It will be added to the American Citizens, and those yet to be born, credit card.  You know the card I'm talking about, don'tcha?  It's the one everyone in this nation holds that's issued from China with "Hu's your daddy" printed on it.

    But, that isn't slowing Debbie from plowing ahead to try to win one for The Flipper.

    Stabenow's proposal would allow purchasers to get the $7,500 as a rebate at the time of purchase -- such as at a car dealership. It would also extend and expand a tax credit for purchasing medium or heavy-duty plug-in hybrid trucks until 2014. The tax credit would be worth between $15,000 and $100,000, depending on the truck's size.

    "Michigan is already a leader in emerging high-tech battery and electric car production," Stabenow said in a statement. "Other countries are acting to develop their own advanced vehicle markets because they realize the tremendous economic potential this new technology represents. These initiatives will allow Michigan innovators to continue to out-compete the world and create new jobs here."

    Uh-oh.  My BS detector just went off.  Michigan innovators?  Reeeally?  For chrissake Debbie, it was just last year Team Obama gave the Korean's LG Chem $151 million in "Porkulus" funds and now they need more gummint coerced taxpayer money?  And people rag on ethanol subsidies?  Boy, that is just rich.

    President Barack Obama reiterated his call for 1 million plug-in electric vehicles on the roads by 2015 as part of his State of the Union address.

    Well, no sh!t Sherlock.  How the hell is the Chairman of Gummint Motors going to peddle one of his crappy Chevy Volt's when any new diesel powered vehicle can meet a plug-in in efficiency and for a lot less money?

    Last month, the White House endorsed making the $7,500 tax credit for electric vehicles available at the time of purchase. "You won't have to wait," Vice President Joe Biden said at an a Indiana battery assembly plant, adding it would be like the cash-for-clunkers program.

    Yes, let's take a look at what Vice Plugs just said of the $3,000,000,000.00 Cash-For-Clunkers gummint program.

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- October 28, 2009 -- Edmunds.com, the premier resource for online automotive information, has determined that Cash for Clunkers cost taxpayers $24,000 per vehicle sold.

    Nearly 690,000 vehicles were sold during the Cash for Clunkers program, officially known as CARS, but Edmunds.com analysts calculated that only 125,000 of the sales were incremental. The rest of the sales would have happened anyway, regardless of the existence of the program.

    Ironically, the average transaction price for a new vehicle in August 2009 was only $26,915 minus an average cash rebate of $1,667.

    "This analysis is valuable for two reasons," explained Edmunds.com CEO Jeremy Anwyl. "First, it can form the basis for a complete assessment of the program's impact and costs. Second--and more important--it can help us to understand the true state of auto sales and the economy. For example, October sales are up, but without Cash for Clunkers, sales would have been even better. This suggests that the industry's recovery is gaining momentum."

    Didja notice that that report didn't even address who gained the most from those $24,000.00 per vehicle taxpayer subsidized Obamanations.  Try the bulk of our tax dollars going to Japan, Korea and Germany on for size.  Nothing like "stimulating" foreign nations while in a depression of our own.

    And the real kicker in the Cash-For-Clunkers report from Edmunds.com?

    Coincidentally, a parallel analysis of the first-time homebuyer credit was reported yesterday by MIT Sloan Professor Simon Johnson and Yale law student James Kwak, who both blog about economics at The BaseLine Scenario.

    Yep, yet another Democrat Party led gummint program failure just like all them "shovel ready" Porkulus jobs.  The only Porkulus jobs I've seen are the installations of those silly signs telling me that some kind of gummint union employee inactivity is happening along a roadside somewhere.

    Like Representative Paul or not, he summarizes all these Democrat "investment" schemes well in just discussing the failed Cash-For-Clunkers boondoggle.

    Yep! That's Team Obama for yah.  Keeping American's dependent on foreign oil, and more importantly, keeping "the poor" on the Democrat Party plantation.
