  •  Being forced to eat broccoli would be prevented (0+ / 0-)

    but it is rather clear that you could be forced to buy broccoli or an electric car if the mandate were upheld.

    Alternatively, you could be forced to pay money to the federal government which could give it to broccoli or other farmers or electric car makers.

    •  Yes! in other words... (0+ / 0-)

      you could be taxed, and provided a tax benefit if you purchase an electric car? Like the tax rebates we already head on hybrids a few years ago? Yet civilization and libery did not end!

      The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis. --Dante Alighieri
