The Crony Truckers' Association
Carney finds another plump target.
The Environmental Protection Agency is ordering large trucks and buses to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 20 percent and overhaul engine design starting with models built in 2014. Most operators will need to spend thousands upgrading their rigs or buying new vehicles, with prices starting at $50,000 and going up from there, depending on the model.
Even so, the regulations have the support of the large and powerful American Trucking Association. --quoting FoxNews
If you're an independent trucker, or small-guy with a few tractors/trailers, of course, all those new admin requirements and new trucks--well, that's REAL money.
So those little guys will go away.
It's the inverse of the Mafia's "protection" racket.
