    You people are screaming about budgets and red ink...and you're wanting senators to spend $40k+ for each car in their motorcade?

    They want less intrusive government unless you are fetile woman.

    They want to build it themselves unless they need roads/bridges/airports and a passport.

    They support the NRA with donations so the NRA can support a gun-grabber.

    Confusing isn't it!

    Demorats typically enact rules for us to follow then promptly exempt themselves. It is their way and none should question their hypocrisy. If you do you're a racist.

    Exact same thing the right does, except if you question it you're a welfare queen.

    And guess what...the Volt would never pass a Secret Service overhaul...and even if it did, by the time all the mods were done it would be a waste. And Where the hell did you get the idea that the Volt was made in India? Is it that hard on your brain in the Cone of Silence? US and EU-zone market Volts are assembled in Detroit.
    Man. You are all stuped.

    how much does an Expedition cost?
    Whenever the legislators endeavour to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence - John Locke

    I don't see why they had to be driving Volts.

    Also, the Volt bashing is getting a little old and in 10 years there will be millions of plug-in and it will be the most popular car in California like the Prius is today....

    ... saving millions of dollars from exiting the country to other country we don't like, cleaning up the city air and more.

    Well seeing as how the motorcades already have them...probably $3.50/gallon is what they cost now, Mr. Smarty-Pants.

    motorcade Expeditions don't ever need to be replaced? How much does it cost to replace one?

    Why don't you go and look, instead of expecting me to do your arguing for you?

    I'd wager that at the end of the day for the amount of protection needed for dignitaries a Volt is a non-starter. I doubt you could make it rugged enough to do what the SUVs can be made to survive and flee a seen under its own power in a hurry if needed, all concerns about the battery packs etc. aside.
