Dear PoPville – Should DC Government Purchase Chevy Volt Cars?

Dear PoPville,

I saw a dc issued chevy volt and i was surprised that the govt would spend that kind of money in this or any economy.

I understand that there is a federal tax credit that reduces the cost significantly but i would like there to be a discussion on “the consumer culture” in dc govt. Why are luxury purchases necessary to do a job? Wouldnt a sub compact fulfill that purpose with economic and environmental considerations taken into account?

Ed. Note: Looks like you can get a new Chevy Volt for $31,645.
