TONE DEAF: Biden just announced new gas mileage standards that will make cars even more expensive

Published in Blog on April 04, 2022 by Article V Patriot

This is exactly what Americans don't want to hear.

Thanks to President Joe Biden's decision to pump money into an already-recovering economy, cars and trucks are more expensive than they've ever been. Now, it looks like they'll be getting even more expensive.

Transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg announced today that the federal government will be requiring all vehicles made after the model year 2026 to average 49 miles per gallon. The new regs will also increase fuel efficiency 8% standards annually for model years 2024-2025 and 10% annually for the model year 2026.

This is an astronomical ask for car makers in the United States. Cars have been getting more fuel efficient, but Ford, GM, and others aren't sitting on secret new technologies they can suddenly roll out in the next four years. They'll spend billions on research and development in an attempt to reach the new standards, and they'll pass those costs onto the American consumers. 

When will the president stop sacrificing the good of the country for his radical Green New Deal agenda? Everyday Americans can't afford to buy an electric car, and the money they'll save on driving a more fuel-efficient vehicle will be eaten up by higher car prices. Radical climate activists are controlling this White House, and we can't sit by and let them destroy our country.

Fortunately, the Founders gave us a solution. We'll never keep partisans out of the federal government, but we can limit the damage they can do. Article V of the Constitution allows the states to call a Convention of States for the purpose of proposing constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government to regulate all areas of the American economy -- including transportation.

With these amendments in place, the White House would no longer be permitted to set arbitrary gas mileage standards. If the federal government wants to try to regulate such a broad sector of the economy, that decision must be made by the peoples' representatives in Congress, not unelected bureaucrats at an activist-filled federal agency. 

If that sounds good, we want to work with you! Sign the Convention of States Petition below to join the only nationwide grassroots movement powerful enough to drain The Swamp and put the White House back in its place.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
