Newsom Focuses on Electric Cars, As More Californians Die from COVID-19

Why does Governor Gavin Newsom want to spend $1.5 billion to help low-income Californians buy electric cars?

In the middle of a global pandemic with 70,000 infections a day, millions of unemployed, tens of thousands of shuttered businesses and skyrocketing housing costs, buying an electric car is probably not top-of-mind for low-income Californians.

How about focusing on the COVID-19 vaccine distribution system?

California has already received just under 2 million vaccine doses, yet only 530,000 people have received the shots. That’s a mere 27%.

How many times do Californians have to hear Gov. Newsom say, ‘We have to do better,’ before he actually does?
