OK, let me get this straight.
Because my wife and I made an intelligent car-buying decision a decade ago, because we chose a vehicle with a higher EPA MPG rating, because we made a smart purchasing decision . . .
Because of that, we are now penalized by this latest (or surely not, by now) government give-away of our children's future productivity and tax payments.
Ya know, I am not just whining because I do not get to dip my snout in the public trough (OK, maybe just a little bit I am) but this is once again another example of rewarding poor decisions and bad behavior.
What a joke.

Of course, ours has 150k-plus miles and is a lot more road-weary and road-worn than this pristine file photo image.
Would be nice to get a little free sugar money to trade it in for something with better mileage. But no, the MPG is ONE MPG above the limit.
OK, now I am done whining...
