NO one has a right to a charging station, idiot. As Elon Musk pointed out "Does the government build gas stations? Then why should it build charging stations?"Let's talk about those EV chargers. First, I think you are being a little pessimistic when you claim they will be outdated in five to eight years. What is going to take their place, we going to start driving solar powered cars? I live in a very rural area. The local high school is famously called the tractor school, mostly because they have tractor days every few months. Students drive their tractors to school and park them in the front of the school to display them. Some of the kids even drive riding lawnmowers. It is quite the sight. Not to mention what it does for traffic. I don't know anyone around here that drives an electric car, certainly don't see any Teslas.
But I have an hour commute to work. It is in one of the highest income areas of the state. My business has eight charging stations in the parking lot. When I roll in at six in the morning they are empty, but when I roll out in the afternoon at least half of them are occupied. I see multiple Teslas every single day. Do those living in rural areas not have the same right to access charging stations? Or broadband internet for that matter? That is what this bill provides.
But again, I don't believe you understand how Treasury bonds work. China can't recall those bonds. The only thing China can do is sell those bonds on the secondary market. Go for it, that only reduces the value of those bonds and then we can swoop in and buy them up on the cheap.
