When Gov't Tries To Influence The Marketplace

"You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig."
-- Barack Obama --

After $3,000,000,000 in government subsidies intended to put lipstick on this squealer, consumers still see it as one big, fat pig:

Chevy Volt sales fall in January to just 603

It's still extremely expensive.

It's impractical.

It's inefficient.

It's uncomfortable.

And it may be dangerous.

Bottom line?  Unless Obama - by executive order - forces consumers to buy the thing, it is going to sit and collect dust.

Three billion dollars worth of market influence. 603 sold.

All to make environmentalists feel good about themselves.

For the love of God.
