Democrat Chuck Schumer Wants to Take Away America’s Cars


Senate Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says he wants every gas-powered car in the nation eliminated.

The New York Democrat is sponsoring a plan to sink hundreds of billions of our tax dollars into a plan that would fast track the elimination of gas-powered cars.

Schumer wants to give away billions of tax dollars to Americans to turn in their cars. Sort of like a “car buy-back program” in the vein of the failed gun “buy-back” programs that seek to cajole Americans to give away their Second Amendment rights.

Naturally, Schumer claims that it is all to stop global warming.

According to Political Insider:

“That’s why I am announcing a new proposal designed to rapidly phase out gas-powered vehicles and replace them with zero-emission, or ‘clean,’ vehicles like electric cars,” Schumer wrote after suggesting scientists agree that climate change represents an imminent threat to the U.S.

He added: “The goal of the plan, which also aims to spur a transformation in American manufacturing, is that by 2040 all vehicles on the road should be clean.” The plan would remove more than 63 million gas-powered cars from the road by 2030, Schumer estimates.

Schumer says that the program will cost $392 billion in ten years.

The idea is apparently Schumer’s version of Cash for Clunkers, the failed program launched during Obama’s regime that for years drove up the cost of used cars for all lower income families.

Schumer plans to give a measly $3,000 to Americans if they then use the cash to buy a green vehicle.

The $3,000 discount on a green vehicle is a pittance when the cheapest electric cars coast over $20,000.
