What is the true cost of all these electric vehicles? 

February 13 – After all the stories out there about electric vehicles – most of which are cautionary tales – the true cost could come in the form of subsidies. 

The Congressional Budget Office released details that included all kinds of money in subsidies for electric vehicles. 

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 includes almost $7.5 billion in subsidies for electric vehicle charging stations, as well as tax credits of up to $7,500 per qualifying EV for qualifying buyers. 

Congressman John Joyce explained, “It’s absolutely ridiculous. Last week, we got news that the so-called Inflation Reduction Act, which I think as an Inflation Imposing Act would ultimately cost an additional $428 billion over the next 28 years. It’s not surprising that Biden lied about the cost of what these Green New Deal energy programs would be. It’s a clear example of the type of runaway spending that is bankrupting our country. Instead of using the natural gas, the coal, the Marcellus Shale that’s under the feet of Pennsylvanians, the Biden administration, they’re using taxpayer dollars to incentivize people to buy electric vehicles. Electric vehicles that they don’t want. Electric vehicles that they can’t afford. And electric vehicles that come with batteries from the Chinese Communist Party. The President of the United States, he’s chosen to put our future and our national security at risk, just for the sake of appeasing his liberal base. He’s doing this because he knows that the liberals don’t like him and the middle class don’t like him, and we’re going to see very quickly that the American voters don’t like him. Right now, Biden will do or say anything that takes to get reelected. That’s why President Trump is leading in key battleground states like where we live in Pennsylvania.”

Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM noted, “EV means elite and I can’t afford it and it has no business being on these highways. I’ve got car dealers out there shaking their heads, I can’t move these things off the lot. Then I’ve got the road people out there saying these things are so heavy they are impacting the guardrails out there. This is an absolute mess that the Biden administration and the Greeniacs have put on our backs here and I can’t wait for it to finally stop very soon, hopefully November.”

Joyce said, “I couldn’t agree with you more and spoke about the upcoming November election. I want to thank the more than 4,000 constituents who signed a petition allowing me to be on the ballot. We will be on a primary ballot coming up in April, and I sent each individual who put their name on the line, signed so that I will be present on that ballot. I think we’re going to have a reckoning come in November. I think America is going to look through what Biden has been so much trying to ram down the throats of the American citizens is abject failure to be the leader that anyone could expect. I always thought it was going to be bad with Biden. I didn’t know it was going to be this bad. America will turn back to President Trump. I have endorsed President Trump and I look forward to him being victorious in November.”
