State legislators in Texas and North Carolina are taking bribes (sorry, campaign contributions) from local auto dealers to prevent Tesla from selling cars in their state.
They are calling it unfair competition. Unfair because Tesla’s Model S outsold the Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7 Series, and Audi A8 last quarter? Unfair because Consumer Reports is calling the Tesla Model S the best car it has ever tested?
Politicians should be lining up to support American manufacturing and bringing American success stories to their town.
Instead, American politicians are preventing an American car company from selling American cars.
Sounds like something you’d see in Russia or the Ukraine.
