TO THE EDITOR:
Steve Gates is right on ("Paying consumers more to purchase union-built vehicles is un-American," Aug. 30).
It's obvious that electric vehicles are going to need some sort of short-term government-driven assistance before appealing to any significant portion of the American public.
Somewhere along the line, EVs must stand on their own merit without incentives.
In the meantime, we do not need, nor should we tolerate, the blatant political pandering to unions to get the job done. Let's hope some sanity returns and this discriminatory legislation is defeated.
