Chuck Schumer recently said he wants everyone in America to be driving an electric vehicle. A snippet of his plan is something like he wants you to trade in your current gas vehicle for a "big" rebate on an electric vehicle. I completely agree with his sentiment, but man do I hate it when politicians say stuff like this. It's not that easy for everyone to just go out and buy a car, especially a pricier electric car. This is most likely just a pr statement that won't ever be put into play. I'm sure he has some sort of plan laying off to the side that won't make it to the floor.
This would be an enormous help for the environment that I'd love to see happen though. I remember the cash for clunckers deal did really good. Something like that can happen here too. If everyone in America drove an electric vehicle instead of gas im sure that would make a huge difference.
