James Hohman, assistant director of fiscal policy, was interviewed by Fox News Monday about his analysis that each Chevy Volt sold costs taxpayers up to $250,000.

Aside from the corporate welfare, tax favors and other subsidies electric car makers receive, Fox also reported that buyers who can afford the high-priced vehicles receive what amounts to a transfer of wealth from lower-income taxpayers. Russ Harding, senior environmental policy analyst, made this same point some 15 months ago.

Hohman also wrote a letter to the editor about the matter that appeared in The Washington Post.

WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids also referenced Hohman's analysis, as did a columnist for the New Jersey Star Ledger.
