  •  Because of the auto bailout (5+ / 0-)

    The Congress and the President will have MUCH MORE power over the automobile companies to comply with these standards.

    The car companies may want to go to court to prevent this from happening but with what money and they could cause the wrath of Congress and the White House who will be very instrumental in their bail out.

    This is EXACTLY the RIGHT time to enact this proposal.

    Again this is the start of the green economy.

    •  FOR THE 1000TH TIME LOANS NOT BAILOUT (0+ / 0-)

      Is it? or is it just more problems for companies that are already having issues keeping alive?

      We won't get better MPG with the stick, throw us up (MI)here some fricken carrots already.

      Where is out Energy Apollo program?

      Also this just makes it harder on the Big 3 to keep track of all the different standards. Not to mention that the Japanese companies opposed this idea just as much. One standard is a lot easier to work with.

      I hope that there is money set aside for improving domestic auto in the stim package.
