The Chevy Volt Keeps On Ticking Despite GOP Opposition
Addicitnginfo reports that the Chevy Volt had better than expected sales for March so General Motors is resuming production a week earlier than planned. Production had been temporarily stopped after disappointing January and February sales.
The Volt is manufactured in the United States by an American company. It employs thousands of workers in factories and down the supply chain. It’s a green car that reduces pollution and our reliance on foreign oil. The electric vehicle market is rapidly growing across the planet and allowing foreign competitors to corner it would be disastrous to the US. Despite all of this, conservatives simply cannot stop themselves from bashing it. It’s like a pathology for them. These are the same people that scream “I love ‘Murika!” and claim to worship the blue collar worker. Yet the Volt, a quintessential American success story combining hi-tech innovation with domestic manufacturing (you know, the thing that made us the richest, most powerful nation in history), is an object of ridicule to the right.
Why do conservatives hate American success?
