Currently Shocking Chevy Volt Firefighter Protection Scam

The Obama folks are always worrying about your welfare, right? Evidently, one of those worries was the possibility that you might crash your Chevy Volt, Government Motors’ gunpoint-produced technical marvel (it being a marvel if you could get it to go far enough to risk a crash). The concern wasn’t over you, though (voters are replaceable) but over the unionized firefighters who might take their lives in their hands touching something with that large a battery in order to save you. Or worse, spray water on any fire the beast chose to produce in its death throes.

This particular worry costed out at only $4.4 million, probably because customer resistance has terminated the current supply. The $4.4 M is the amount of loot the Department of Energy set to teach firefighters how to extricate people from wrecked Volts without electrocuting themselves in the process…not to worry; the energy saved by those Volts will more than pay for that training, right? D.O.E. Allocated $4.4 M To Teach Firefighters How To Rescue Folks From The Chevy Volt Without Electrocuting Themselves will provide details if you doubt.

Now that the Volt has shorted out of production, any bets whether the training will be grounded?
