Robert Nozick and Biden’s quest for union-made EVs: Letters – Daily News


I make a connection between the editorial on Robert Nozick Nov. 16 and an AP article on electrical automobiles Nov. 12. It is authorities skewing selections, aka crony capitalism. $7,500 tax credit score to purchase an electrical automobile. In 2027, solely automobiles made within the U.S. will qualify. Then an additional $4,500 if constructed at a union plant.  My confusion is limitless. If we’re a worldwide economic system, why solely U.S.-manufactured EVs if one other nation has higher know-how/pricing? It denies shoppers and is protectionist. If electrical automobiles are good, why ought to the federal government subsidize extra for these made by union staff? It is a backdoor transfer to advertise unions. Whether unions are good or unhealthy, authorities shouldn’t be rewarding additional tax {dollars} to those that purchase from union corporations. The infrastructure invoice consists of $7.5 billion constructing charging stations. Did the federal government construct gasoline stations?  What will a shopper pay to cost an EV at these government-funded stations? I didn’t see something within the invoice for EV house owners to “pay a justifiable share” once they use the roads additionally.  A California payment of $175 per yr is nothing in comparison with $1.18 tax per gallon. Last, I’ve no clue the place this electrical energy will come from, not to mention how a lot mining have to be carried out to construct the batteries.

He was discovered not responsible on all prices by his friends within the American manner, not the best way our president, many information reporters and some celebrities comparable to LeBron and Whoopi portrayed him out to be earlier than the true story got here out.

Opinions are advantageous however all of us ought to wait till we all know the reality earlier than we communicate our minds. If Kyle had been their son would they be spewing rhetoric as a result of they’re within the media. I feel not.

LAUSD is spending $5M (Nov. 18) on prizes for vaccinations whereas the scholars within the on-line program (22,000 robust and counting) have outdated, damaged and typically ineffective computer systems.

LAUSD obtained large COVID-19  {dollars} and, having labored for them for 35 years, I didn’t count on them to make use of that cash properly.
