Even "conservatives" can't be buying this nonsense? Doesn't "conservatism" come from "conserve"?

Cars are long term investments and rollbacks can sentence people far into the future on spending more money for fuel than they need to.

The Left coast doesn't get to make the call. Cars are not "investments" BTW.

Not when non-CA vehicles are manufactured to CARB standards and not Federal standards. If California or a local government appropriates a federal commerce duty affecting the emissions standards of my vehicle then it's violating the constitution and my civil rights.

Private enterprise creating a product based on their own voluntary standards violates your civil rights?

You can't have states with different automotive emissions, fuel mileage or safety standards because it would affect interstate commerce.

It's based on the CA standards. If dropped the CA standards and the Federal standards the product would be made differently (and better and more affordable other than not made to those standards)

You want the federal government to tell companies that they cannot exceed standards? How very communist of you. Would you like a Trabant?

Is someone stopping you from forming your own car company?

Where do your civil rights come into play?
