John Kerry Says Proposed Fuel Economy Standards Don’t Address Problems with Foreign Oil, High Gas Prices

Today, the Bush administration “proposed new rules to compel auto manufacturers to make pickup trucks, minivans and some sport utility vehicles more fuel efficient.”

Senator John Kerry today issued the following statement on the new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.

“This is a pessimistic decision. It says that America won’t innovative, won’t lead and won’t create a better future through better technology like we know we can. It is backward looking, and it will bring us more dependence on unreliable foreign oil, more pollution and higher gasoline costs for American families. It protects the status quo and is another lost opportunity to help our security, economy and environment.”

    Bravo! More! More! Encore!

    Americans love ideas… this country was built upon an idea. For all our faults, Americans are inventors and innovators… and we CAN think our way out of our dependence on foreign fuel. Brazil has. We can do it too. And in the process, unite red and blue around a central goal, to wean ourselves from Saudi influences, to create an environment we’re proud to leave to our children, to build our eroding R&D base, to create manufacturing jobs, to create high tech jobs, to give our children choices in education, to give our farmers a place again at the table.

    Our land, our future, our idea. Others will follow. Renewable fuels our in our future.
