The big three meet the same emission and fuel standards as everyone else. Their two main problems are: 1. they negotiated with the slacker unions, letting them get out of hand. 2. the feds get in their way.

I will continue to state...the most powerful agent for change isn't the feds, it's peer pressure. When, or more accurately if we want teeny weeny cars...we will get them and because the market place (us) is demanding it...the cast per unit will be next to nothing. The cost of compliance to a law or regulation is much higher than the cost of providing the market it's choice.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first.

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
-- Winston Churchill

Censorship, that most subtle tool of oppression, the tool of the fearful and small minded. 8/15/2008
