OK, I could forgive the Bush administration for not penalizing SUV drivers. I could forgive them for not raising CAFE standards so that big gas-guzzlers are forced to become more fuel efficient. This would be short-sighted, but it’s a tough political row to hoe. But it turns out, in Bush’s recent economic stimulus package, there’s a huge tax _break_ for buying cars “above 6000 pounds.”
So, not only is Bush not working to make our air cleaner or reduce our dependence on foreign oil… he’s actively working against those goals.
