Obama's New CAFE Standards Will Make Cars More Expensive and More Dangerous

Today Barack Obama announced new mandatory CAFE standards for cars sold in the United States. This means that the new cars available for purchase will cost about $1300 more and will kill about 800 more people a year. All in the name of supposed greenhouse gases that may or may not be hazardous to our health.

President Barack Obama is asking consumers to put their money — up to $1,300 per new vehicle by 2016 — behind his plan for higher efficiency standards for cars and trucks and tougher rules on their greenhouse gas emissions. n return, Obama said Tuesday in unveiling the plan, drivers would make up the higher cost of more fuel-efficient, cleaner vehicles by buying less gas at the pump.

It would take just three years to pay off the investment and would, over the life of a vehicle, save about $2,800 though better gas mileage, the president said.

Yeah, right. Pull the other one, Barack. The president is not factoring in the increased cost of gasoline should his massive cap and trade tax be implemented, something the Democrats are furiously trying to do while the American people aren’t paying attention.
