Do you agree with government incentives to buy the Chevy Volt?
You left out two options: "I Blame Bush" and "The Evil Jews".
That being said:
No. Gubamint shouldn't subsidize Chevy Volt sales and no, I'll probably never buy one.

The poll choices are in adequate.
No. The government should not pick winners and losers by subsidizing industries, companies, or specific products. The tax credit for the Chevy Volt is Crony Capitalism for the benefit of the UAW and the investment bankers that are in on the GM IPO.
No, it unfairly helps one sector out over others with tax dollars, for example, if I own stock in Ford, I may lose value in them due to government helping my competitor and using my tax dollar in the process.
Yes, it will help set our nations energy policy of towards one of conserving energy. This is not simply a "hybrid", this is an electric car (the only drive motor is electric, and a hot looking one to boot!). The cost of new technology is always higher and I want the government which I help pay for to set policy in this area. I don't give a damn what the brain dead righties want or "think".
With the proper incentives this will be the wave of the future, it's time to stop letting the oil lobby and their symbiotic entities from standing in the way.
When the last internal combustion car is removed from the road, Americans will wonder what took so long. They can then read these posts from the naysayers.
So you agree with tax cuts for the rich in the area then correct?
GM is dead to me, and a lot of America as well.
They will be back again with their hand out, within the next 10 years.
I think they should have incentives to buy any American made hybrid car.
Hahahaaaa...I think Poll choices are a good indicator of the intelligence of the pollmaker.
