I didn't say I agreed with the shortsighted decision to make it only a token
deduction, just correcting some possibly misleading information. So the
deduction is still available (but sadly getting smaller every year).

Now, now, no need to get snarky; he was merely making a correction. A
deduction saves the buyer the tax that would have been owed on $,000 of
income; it does not save the buyer $,000.

Snarky? I simply wrote the truth. Here in the U. S. one gets a one-time
tax deduction for purchasing a Prius and an annual tax credit for each child
to age 18. The $000.00 Prius deduction, worth roughly $00.00, is a reward
for reducing pollution. The child tax credit is a reward for bearing
children. The planet is overpopulated by any measure. A family raising 3
children to age 18 is awarded about $0,000.00.

And hopefully one of them little snot-noses will grow up and develop a cheap
and renewable energy resource that will pay us back on the investment
Of course a country that exalts a *sport* that takes limited skill and only
seems to exist to flaunt new ways to chew up non-renewable,
planet -polluting resources hardly has it's priorities straight to begin
(Jeff) Gordon laps, while the country chokes...

Politics aside, the original purpose for the deduction was to promote hybrid
cars. That doesn't look like an issue any more, judging by the prices people
