Any time anybody complains about subsidies going to electric vehicle 
manufacturers I just have to roll my eyes and ask about the auto industry 

Same thing with solar energy and our military expenditures to ensure compliant 
regimes in oil-producing lands -- not to mention corporate welfare in general.

You want a level playing field? Look at what gasoline costs in Europe. How well 
do you think Detroit could compete with EVs if cheap gasoline was $8 / gallon?
