Obama-Mobile Chevy Volt Doesn't Make the Green Car Cut

“I’ve Got Twelve Green Cars, But a Volt Ain’t One”

GreenCars.org has just released its Greenest Vehicles of 2012 list.  And the expensiveuber-subsidizedoverproducedunprofitableunpopularcombustible Chevy Volt isn’t on it.

 

Less Government President Seton Motley:

“The Barack Obama Administration and its Government Motors minions have spent billions of dollars in the attempt to make the Chevy Volt the ‘Green Car of the Future.’  Its dismal sales tell us that the Chevy Volt has no future – unless the Obama Administration continues to prop it up with massive government money subsidies.

“We’ve seen Obama’s 2012 reelect campaign laundry list – I mean budget – and he unfortunately intends to not only continue the subsidies, but increase them.

“But not only does Obama’s Chevy Volt ‘Green Car of the Future’ have no (free market) future – it has no green.  It can’t even make the cut for the 2012 list of ‘green’ cars.  A compiling of pseudo-‘green’ mobiles that burn mostly coal – far dirtier than petroleum – to get their petroleum-substitute electricity. So the ‘green’ machines – aren’t so green.

“As for this but latest failing of the Chevy Volt; Obama loves rapper Jay-Z, so for the President I have a Government Motors remix of one of his biggest tunes: ‘I’ve got twelve green cars, but a Volt ain’t one.’”

We the taxpayers own more than 500 million shares of GM stock, on which we are currently poised to lose almost $13 billion.  To go with the (at least) $12 billion we’ve already lost on the auto bailout.  Less Government tracks the looming loss – and offers the solution for how we can extricate ourselves from Government Motors – at www.BailoutCost.com.
