PRC Excited To Keep Low Income Folks From Owning Cars

Most of the time climate cult articles mention how ‘climate change’ affects minorities, usually meaning blacks, more than anyone else. Funny how that’s not mentioned in this piece

California Will Pay People To Not Own A Car

Everyone lately has been talking about California’s ban on internal combustion engines for cars, the notorious EV mandate. While it’s shocking to hear about that and the many other states following suit, hardly anyone is talking about another shocking development in the Golden State’s war against emissions. As The Washington Post recently reported, officials in California will start paying citizens to not own a car since the belief is this will eliminate pollution.

Under a bill which passed earlier in the month, low-income residents who don’t own a car will receive $1,000 as a refundable tax credit. To qualify, a single tax filer has to earn $40,000 or less. Joint filers can make up to $60,000.

Surely the California legislature thinks this will be a boon for public transportation in the state. The reality is ever since the population explosion in California, buses, trains, etc. have struggled to keep up. You can blame it on whatever set of factors you’d like, but paying people to not own a car won’t fix this.

No, it won’t fix anything, but, it is interesting how the People’s Republik Of California wants to keep those lower income folks from having the same mobility and benefits of the rich folks, eh? I wonder if they realize that a tax credit doesn’t necessarily equate to actual money?

    No, California will not pay people to own a car.

    California will rip off productive people to subsidize lunatics, true-believers, the unproductive, and the colossal boondoggle that is “high speed rail.”

    How to slow-walk people into concentration camps, where their carbon emissions can be completely controlled.

    A refundable tax credit permits a direct payment if the recipient owes no taxes. A thousand not paid in taxes is still a $1000 benefit. Note too that maintaining a vehicle is expensive! Gasoline, insurance and mechanical maintenance are real costs.

    There was nothing in the article to suggest the state would prevent people from owning a car, only offering a tax benefit if they chose not to own one. It’s a carrot, not a stick.

    We know, we know… nuCons will claim this is just the beginning of Califascist CONTROL!

    At $20.00 an hour the fast food worker gets $800/week or $41,600/annual.
