The Biden Administration is at it again, proposing yet another set of electric vehicle regulations that are nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to destroy the auto industry and rob hardworking Americans of their choice in vehicles. Republican attorneys general across the country are blasting these regulations, standing up for the values of freedom and choice that our great nation was founded on.
President Biden wants to use the power of government to force a massive shift in demand for electric vehicles.
This is the latest head-in-the-sand approach to achieving the left’s impossible green-energy fantasies.https://t.co/WsRbCzXZXk

But what exactly do these regulations entail? Well, according to the Biden Administration, all new vehicles sold in the United States must be electric by the year 2030. That’s right, folks – no more gas-guzzling muscle cars or rugged pickups for hardworking Americans. Instead, we’ll all be forced to drive around in wimpy, underpowered electric cars that can barely go more than a few miles without needing a recharge.
And let’s not forget about the cost. Electric vehicles are expensive – much more so than traditional gas-powered cars. By mandating their sale, the Biden Administration is effectively pricing out millions of Americans who simply can’t afford to fork over tens of thousands of dollars for a new car. This is a blatant attack on the middle class and a clear attempt to make sure only the wealthiest Americans can afford to drive.
Of course, the Biden Administration would have you believe that this is all in the name of environmentalism. But the truth is, electric vehicles are not as eco-friendly as they’re made out to be. The production of the batteries that power these cars is incredibly resource-intensive, and the disposal of those same batteries is a massive environmental hazard. Not to mention the fact that most of our electricity is still generated from fossil fuels, meaning that even if you’re driving an electric car, you’re still contributing to carbon emissions.
The bottom line is this: these proposed electric vehicle regulations are not about saving the planet or reducing emissions. They are about control. They are about taking away our freedom to choose the cars we want to drive and putting that choice in the hands of government bureaucrats. Republican attorneys general across the country are standing up and saying enough is enough. It’s time to put an end to this blatant attack on our rights and freedoms and let hardworking Americans make their own choices about the cars they drive.
