FOX News: 17 retired military officials raise alarm on Biden's electric vehicle push 

Biden's EV push is 'clear example of tone-deaf policymaking,' retired military officials write 

A coalition of 17 retired military officials — including multiple one-, two-, and three-star officers — are raising the alarm on President Biden's aggressive electric vehicle (EV) push over its national security implications. 

In a letter addressed to Biden and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan, the officials led by retired U.S. Army Major General James Marks warned that the president's plans for mass EV proliferation will increase reliance on Chinese supply chains. 

They wrote that regulatory initiatives aimed at incentivizing EV adoption "intensify America’s vulnerability to political interference by the Chinese Communist Party."

Dealers cannot sell EV's, so they are overstocked. All the libtards with more money than sense have bought them and the market is saturated. Second hand EVs are not selling well either due to price cuts of new EVs, which are still not selling with those cuts.

Ford is taking a a billion dollar hit on EVs.

Democrat leaders and other con artists can talk up EV's for a few years more, but it is not happening.

Hybrid tech is the way to go, for the next 15-20 years. That should be plenty of time for infrastructure rebuilding to support EVs.
