From The Hill: "President Barack Obama will announce plans Friday to improve car and truck mileage and cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Obama is slated to issue a directive that expands vehicle mileage rules to include big trucks for the first time beginning in model year 2014. The president is expected to offer comments on the announcement later this morning.
The directive will also require continued mileage improvements in cars and light-duty trucks after model year 2016, when the current efficiency and greenhouse gas rules end."
So, instead of going through Congress, Obama just writes into law that gas mileage has to increase by 2014 for the big rigs and 2016 for cars and small trucks.
What this will do is put more truckers out of business. In California, they have stricter emissions from trucks and they succeeded in putting truckers out of business, especially the small trucking companies and independents. Truckers have also moved out of state and into states like NV, to get around California's laws.
It will also cost more to buy a truck. A truck that cost $100,000 in 2001 now will cost about $160,000 because of the "improvements" to the trucks.
And you know that the trucking companies are not eat the cost, they will pass it on to the consumers, making products more expensive.
So, how can anyone not call Obama a dictator after this? Obama and his ilk are destroying America one piece at a time.
