Absolutely I am. In fact if I were king, I would abolish corporate taxes entirely. Then companies wouldn't have to play tax shell games. They wouldn't have to figure out which senators they have to buy in order to stay on the "winners" list. There would be an economic boom and investment boom like you've never seen before. Instead of being punished for success in the US, companies would be rewarded for it. There would be a huge improvement in employment, standard of living, and (dare I say it) income tax revenue.
So yes, I'm definitely a trickle-down advocate if it's used to benefit growth. But if you're simply redistributing tax money, then I think it's simply and exercise to frustrate and disillusion taxpayers.
Not at all. Firstly, most taxpayers in this country have less than $10k federal tax liability. So whether the rebate is 7500 or 10,000 is moot to them. Many taxpayers are finacially burdened so that they could not even consider buying a new car, let alone buying a new EV as a second car. Another large portion of taxpayers have no place to plug one in at night.
So who buys Fiskers and Teslas? Certainly they have more than 10k tax liability, live in suburbia, have a multiple car garage, and have enough discretionary income to spend $75-125k on a secondary car.
If these are the people who can best benefit from Obama's stash, then I guess I'm all for it. Robin Hood had it all wrong.
