    an apology is requested....

    Ok, I did misread slightly, sorry. But why would people withdraw their money that they are saving for retirement for this?

I did not get a hybrid, I opted for a 4-cyl turbo (I wanted the speed but not all the time).

    Anyway, I don't know about you, but while I'd take a hybrid car, I'd love to have an electric one. Far less moving parts, lighter, cleaner, faster, etc. Sounds great to me. Oh and cheaper!
    I will stick with my GMC Sierra with headers and a computer chip and my Harley. By the way I use ethanol free gas for better mileage and performance

    The Volt is doing so well. Electric cars and winter may be a problem

    Have you checked out the Tesla, Model S. I can't even think about their roadster model (because of the cost and our need for a 4-seater), but someday maybe the model S.

    So you are one of those idiots that pulls out in front of my big truck and expects me to slow 70,000+ LBS so you cand accelerate slowly to get better gas mileage. I hate hybrids and the way the idiots that own them care nothing about highway safety

    Prius drivers are the worst

    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.

    Not those people who are still saving, but retirees. There are lots of them with good retirement incomes and substantial savings as well. But even those who are nearing retirement could benefit. My wife's IRA, almost $200K, is in a fixed account, earning a whopping 1%.....that money would be better spent making our AZ home more energy efficient, or buying a new home that is wheelchair compatible. I am not there now, but will be. Parkinson's has no cure.
    My IRA funds are almost gone, used to build a house in Utah. We have about $120K in retirement income, the bulk of which is periodically adjusted for cost of living. We are well protected in our medical care needs. We don't NEED so much savings. There are a lot of people in that category. Like I said, trillions....

    Hybrids are a good idea - though I personally haven't seen a different in Prius drivers --- their smug attitude though, yes. Hybrids are a good marketing tool to sell more cars - so I have no issue with that at all. The idea however that investment of government money (ie., tax dollars) at this time for some ideological wet dream is insanity. But then again, if there's any group in the U.S. that will take the lead in moving to alternative fuels it's the private sector with help of the market. It will be a challenge though with oil still in good supply...

    Look, you are comparing a financial issue to an energy issue. They are not the same, and considering the conservative tactic for any emergency is to cut taxes, I don't see how we can every find our way to energy independence or budget surplus.

    What change do you people like? You just want to live in a John Wayne movie, smoke cigars, and shoot indians?
    We all buy electric cars then we will have to burn more coal to produce the electric for the cars.

    I want to see the electric motor and batteries that will pull 80,000 LBS in a big truck
