Will Hillary Clinton Finish Obama’s War On American Car Culture?


The Obama administration has relentlessly hammered away at America’s automotive culture. Most recently, Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) took their most radical step and tried to prohibit the conversion of vehicles into race cars:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a regulation to prohibit conversion of vehicles originally designed for on-road use into racecars. The regulation would also make the sale of certain products for use on such vehicles illegal.

After a national outcry from automotive enthusiasts, a Change.org petition gained over 150,000 signatures to stop the EPA. But American automotive enthusiasts still live under a “cloud of uncertainty” as to what the EPA will try next to hamper the industry.

The Obama administration’s EPA has rolled out countless numbers of expensive and intrusive regulations. These regulations stand to do untold damage to American manufacturers, potentially sending the American economy into a tail spin.

But business groups are just as adamant that a tough new limit on ozone would devastate the economy by making it difficult to open or expand hundreds of manufacturing plants in much of the country. “This would be the most expensive regulation ever imposed on the American public,” said the National Association of Manufacturers…

Unfazed by the backlash, the EPA has again turned its regulatory sights on American automakers and drivers by setting the highest emissions standards to date, even though it is unclear if automakers are currently able to meet the requirements:

The EPA has been relentless on this front, vowing for even more costly regulations on American Automakers in the future:

The auto industry will need to step up introduction of fuel-saving technology to help the U.S. meet aggressive goals to combat climate change despite manufacturers’ requests for relief from existing rules, the Environmental Protection Agency’s top transportation official said.

While the American car culture has been under siege during the Obama years, Hillary Clinton has made it clear that she plans to continue this radical agenda:

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton pledged Sunday that if elected she will build on a new White House clean-energy program and defend it against those she called “Republican doubters and defeatists.”

Under a Hillary Clinton administration, it’s even possible that America will continue to move leftward by following the path of Norway and banning all gasoline powered cars, which would eliminate thousands of jobs. With billionaires like Tom Steyer bankrolling Democratic environmental crusaders, Clintons destructive climate agenda is a serious threat to American consumers and American automotive enthusiasts.
