While CAFE backfired and did more harm to fuel economy than help, it now stands to have led the government to its ultimate goal, the power over what cars are built. It appears that the government will at minimum have veto power over every GM model. Nothing that isn’t politically acceptable is likely to see the light of day from GM again.

For many years, consumers have had some semblance of choice when it comes to purchasing automobiles, and they have spoken loudly in the cases of GM and Chrysler. In fact, they spoke volumes about Chrysler three decades ago, but the government intervened and bailed out a company that unsuccessfully tried to foist junk on consumers and was facing the cold water of financial discipline.
Consumers are speaking again, but instead of just bailing out Chrysler (again), the government now has decided that an all-out assault on the entire auto industry and consumer choice is in our future. This time, however, the government and its UAW partner will not give consumers those opportunities to deviate from their government-chosen paths that they once had.
The Obama Regime has released a preview of what you will all be forced to drive in the near future.
