We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Are Fuel Standards the Next No Child Left Behind?

28th August 2012

Half Sigma asks an obvious question.

Just as it was impossible to make all children proficient in reading and writing just by saying it’s going to happen, it’s also impossible to make the average car and truck get 54.5 mile per gallon by 2025 (unless we are talking about only making electric cars).

How close will we get to this train wreck? Probably not very far if Romney is elected president, because he will hopefully have the common sense to reverse these rules which were set by executive decision and not by any statutes passed by Congress.

“Thirteen major automakers, including General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, have endorsed the new standards.” They figure they are an oligopoly so they will make money no matter what happens, as long as they stand together.

For the Left, passing a regulation is like wishing upon a star — that’s all it takes.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true….
