    Another "free lunch" proponent I see. A socialist conservative, what a concept.

    Not to derail the thread but they should. There is this brilliant professor in Michigan named Karen Robert who has written a few articles on the way in which car ownership or lack or thereof contribute to economic mobility. She has supported it by pointing at examples all over the world from both growing economic power houses and existing industrialized nations. At the very least states should create incentives for people to buy cars.

    You could go read it yourself... just sayin'....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Shouldn't they rule, in part, based on the fact that this is now determined by the CBO to be twice as expensive as when it was sold to us?

    NO!!
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith
