President Joe Biden has finalized the most extreme push in history to destroy the gas-powered car industry and force consumers to drive what will be, in effect, government mandated electric vehicles.

The New York Times claimed last month that the administration was going to back off its push to force consumers to only purchase EVs as demand for EVs has nosedived in recent years.

However, the administration ultimately caved to far-Left environmentalist groups and activists who demanded the most aggressive effort ever to eliminate combustion engine vehicles.

The Washington Post, which called the effort “controversial,” noted that the rule will force automakers “to ramp up sales of electric vehicles while slashing carbon emissions from gasoline-powered models.”

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claimed that its national pollution standard, which could end up getting killed in the courts, would prevent more than 7 billion tons of carbon emissions, which it claimed would provide $100 billion in annual benefits to the U.S.

The announcement was met with swift backlash online across the political Right, who warned that Biden’s agenda would damage the American car industry.

“Biden’s extreme climate agenda will crush America’s auto industry and its hard workers while making us MORE dependent on China,” said Republican Senate candidate Dave McCormick. “And the irony of it all? Biden will increase global emissions by restricting LNG exports and sourcing lithium needed for batteries from China’s mines!”


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded: “Biden’s latest ban on gas-powered vehicles and replacement with electric vehicles is another direct assault on consumer choice and the American way of life.  It ignores the needs of American families in order to appease the radical environmental lobby at the expense of millions of jobs supported by the automotive industry. It’s time to put an end to this regulatory overreach.”

Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) called the agenda “restrictive and unnecessary,” and said that Americans should be able to “choose the best car for their needs.”
