Obama wants to give $2.5 BILLION for people to receive a $7.500 tax credit to purchase an electric car that is priced at about $50,000 so Unions can make more money. This is a complete waste of taxpayer monies. The Americans for Freedom solution detailed below will create far more Free Market jobs in the private sector while generating more local and state tax revenues for government.
Taxpayers should understand that the AFL-CIO, SEIU and other Unions have such hard line contracts with many city and county governments that the Unions have a financial stranglehold on the taxpayers. Under current union contracts, the Unions are telling the city government what they will be paid and no cutbacks for years. If they cannot agree, then there is mandatory third party arbitration.
