Default Fed official apologizes for recommending imports in newsletter

Fed official apologizes for recommending imports in newsletter
Filed under: Hybrids/Alternative, Government/Legal, Green, Chrysler, Ford, GM


Domestic automakers may be losing market share, but it appears their clout is intact. The Department of Health and Human Services issued an apology for a recent newsletter that suggested only Japanese and South Korean vehicles in a list of 12 "green" vehicles for their 67,000 employees to buy. Domestic automakers took exception to the seemingly biased message, and the 15 Michigan members of the house wielded their power to get the HHS to apologize.

That all the vehicles listed in the HHS newsletter were of Asian origin doesn't bother us much at all, but the fact that a government department that admittedly has nothing to do with auto policy is "suggesting" that its workforce buys certain kinds of cars just pisses us off. This is the United States of America baby, viva la choice!
