    You can't build anything, car, truck or computer without the investment to "research and development".
    Costs will decrease as technology improves the products and they become cheaper to make.
    I don't think anyone will disagree that without innovation and technology we would still be in the horse and buggy era.

    That's right. There is 2 sides to every story.
    Tell me that innovation, technology and the money spent on those items don't benefit all.

    Car companies aren't going to roll a car off the line they can't make a profit on. That's why GM got in trouble in the first place. And now out federal government is subsidizing that way of business.

    Besides, why do you want to subsidize the rich $7500 per volt?

    The White House intends to boost government subsidies for wealthy buyers of the Chevy Volt and other new-technology vehicles — to $10,000 per buyer. That mammoth subsidy would cost taxpayers $100 million each year if it is approved by Congress, presuming only 10,000 new-technology autos are sold each year.


    The average income of the Chevy Volt’s buyers is $170,000 per year, according to General Motors CEO Dan Akerson.

    I guess it was OK to subsidize the Japanese Toyoda Prius ?

    No. But ask yourself why the Prius exists?

    And sorry pal, coal/oil receive no subsidies. A tax break isn't a subsidy. Another left wing lie.

    And show me any real subsidy, and I'll be against it.
