54.5 MPG and the Law of Unintended Consequences

Legislators and regulators need to observe a fundamental Golden Rule: Do not implement new laws if you have not considered or cannot control important unintended consequences.

A perfect example is the Obama administration’s plan to increase new car mileage standards, from the currently legislated requirement of 35.5 miles per gallon by 2016 to 54.5 mpg by 2025, as an average across each automaker’s complete line of cars and light trucks.

Carmakers reluctantly agreed to the new requirements to avoid even more onerous standards, or different standards in different states. But the deal does nothing to alter the harsh realities of such a requirement. ...

Buying gas-guzzlers is aiding the enemy, you know, Islam's Global War against Christianity, and most of the oil comes from the Middle East. Now it is a possibility that North America will once again be the world's filling station, but still that won't happen instantly. Oh, I'm sure the U.S., once we get those tea party types out, raise taxes on gasoline to match that of the Europeans, and then the free market will take over. At the present time its anti-American to use a gas-guzzler. Hop on your two-wheeler for good excercise, and you'll get more than 50 MPG.

That should be 10 reasons why the ultra-liberal CFA wants 54.5 mpg by 2025. The consumer votes with his dollar. If the consumer wanted less safe more fuel efficient cars that is what they would be buying. (note electric cars not selling well even with government subsidies) The government needs to get OUT of what should be a free market

Mike of N.Y., you said Obamacare is to be removed. So, poor people aren't going to have that either! Hey, but who cares? Just like no good Conservative cares about if a lot of people can't afford healthcare why should they care if they can't afford efficient cars? Conservatives are so rich they can afford to pay a gas guzzler tax anyway. Hey, by the way, Top 10 Reasons Consumers Want 54.5 MPG by 2025.

"A perfect example is the Obama administration’s plan to increase new car mileage standards, from the currently legislated requirement of 35.5 miles per gallon by 2016 to 54.5 mpg by 2025, as an average across each automaker’s complete line of cars and light trucks.

"The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Brookings Institution, Harvard School of Public Health, National Academy of Sciences and USA Today discovered a shocking reality. Even past and current mileage standards have resulted in thousands of additional fatalities, and tens of thousands of serious injuries every year—above what would have happened if the government had not imposed those standards."

No problem. Obamacare will fix the survivors up good.
