Hohman Cited by Fox on Chevy Volt

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.
