Part of the strength of having some policies decided at the state level is that states can experiment with programs on a small, local scale and find out what works so that it can be copied and implemented nationally. Here's a little report on a "cap-and-trade" program among a few states on the east coast. Politicians want to sell to the public that such a program would "kill jobs" or whatever the catch-phrase of choice at the time is. However, this program has shown to not only save money in energy costs in the long term, but also has created jobs. I think it's a program that's worth another look.

Some excerpts:

"According to a recent study, cap and trade has created 3,800 jobs and nearly $500 million in economic activity for Massachusetts since 2008."

"All the RGGI states saw a net economic benefit from the program, the report found, despite increased compliance costs for power plant operators and subsequent electricity rate hikes, largely thanks to energy conservation measures that reduced electric bills. Regionally, $912 million in total auction proceeds spurred $1.6 billion in economic value and created 16,000 jobs, the report found."

Woo hoo!
 
Hope everyone is enjoying the stream of our new album, California 37 (http://bit.ly/IfSR8z)! If you still haven't given the album a listen yet we put together a little commercial that might convince you to give it a spin. Who knows, maybe even those guys over at DollarShaveClub.com will give it a chance (http://youtu.be/ZUG9qYTJMsI)

- Pat, Jimmy and Scott

So, this is what it looks like to be focused on fixing the economy and creating jobs? You take a bill to fund highway and other infrastructure project that had bipartisan support and would have undoubtedly actually created and preserved many jobs. Next, you attach something unrelated and suddenly controversial (even though both sides pretty much used to agree on it) like requiring insurance policies to provide access to some form of birth control. Then, you waste the time of the senate by debating, voting on, etc. something that it's pretty clear will ultimately fail and prolong the passage of the actual job-creating bill. I guess anything you can do to distract from an economy that's been improving month after month while trying to delay/undermine anything that would aid continued improvement is a win, right? So frustrating.

I wonder if a place like this could work nationwide?

Thus far, trying to do business has been exceedingly frustrating. At first, after requesting a quote through their website, I was contacted from Xenia. We played phone tag for a bit because she was "in meetings" and I was busy at work, but when I finally spoke with her, she seemed helpful enough. However, the one thing she didn't provide me with was an actual quote. Then, of course, she passed me to her manager. He was also friendly enough, however, also provided me with no real information other than "we'll beat any price" and "we want your business", blah blah blah. Of course, so does every other dealership. However, at the close of the conversation, I spoke with Xenia again, who said she'd be getting some information together for me, and getting me a quote. I never received anything by e-mail, so I contacted her again the following day to follow up. I received a "sorry for the late response, I've been in meetings" (she must have lots of meetings). She also said due to a change in policy that she wasn't able to provide me with a quote. Here's the thing. I get that a dealership wants to be in control of the selling/buying process, because that's what benefits them the most. However, the customer is the one who is taking time out of their lives to undergo the always unpleasant process of buying a car. If I don't get to be in control of the process of spending $20,000 of my money with your business, then you don't get my business. If you are not willing to give me a COMPLETE price quote (with no hidden, unmentioned fees that I have to learn about later) on a product that you are trying to sell, then you don't get my business. As a consumer, you get the best deals through competition. I'd think a car dealership of all places would understand that. If you're so sure you can give me the best price on a new car, then just tell me what that price is and let ME decide. I also looked at a Ford Focus that I really liked and their dealership was much more helpful, I just happened to prefer the Hyundai, and I already own a Hyundai that I've been happy with. I'm starting to regret that decision.
