Barack Obama will order car makers to raise fuel efficiency to 35.5 miles per gallon by 2016, a move that will jack up the average cost of an automobile by $1,300 at a time when auto sales are in the toilet and the economy is struggling to survive the other disasterous plans and policies he has slammed through Congress.
The plan will force car companies to produce smaller and lighter cars that Americans have repeatedly shown they do not want, and will make the Americans driving them less safe.
Disclosure of the agreement is expected Tuesday, with executives from several large auto companies, including General Motors Corp. Chief Executive Frederick “Fritz” Henderson, as well as United Auto Workers President Ron Gettelfinger, expected to participate, people familiar with the matter said.
Obama takes over GM. Obama installs new management at GM. Obama takes over Chrysler. Obama hands ownership of Chrysler to his deep-pocketed supporters in the United Auto Workers. GM, Chrysler and the United Auto Workers lap up Obama’s plans to screw the US consumer and kill the automobile industry.
And they say Socialism always fails. What they meant to say was Socialism fails the people. It doesn’t seem to be failing Obama; mostly because he’s got so much swagga and his wife’s arms are so damned toned that no one is really paying attention to what he’s doing.
