I am getting a little tired of columnists and commentators stating that Tesla is subsidized because of tax credits. Tax credits simply allow you to keep more of the money that YOU earned. No-one pays me $7500 that was taken from somewhere else. Positing that because I paid 7500 less to the IRS in a given year is somehow taking money away from the government, implies that all of my money belongs to the government and that they ALLOW me to keep some of it. If the government threatens to take less of my money if I agree to buy a Tesla why shouldn't I take that deal?
