The Affordable Car Act and Our Debt Ceiling Crises
Our family has a problem. We have too many drivers, with too many places to go, and not enough cars. I’m often stuck at work freezing in the cold waiting for a ride home. I’ve had to pawn my kids off to get rides to their soccer games with other parents simply because there isn’t an available car.
Something must be done. It’s almost a right. A right to transportation.
So, a new car is needed.
So, I’m thinking I should get the 2013 Range Rover Autobiography LR-V8 Supercharged. It’s $135,995. Yes, it’s pricy, but it does EVERYTHING. Reliable. I can get a roof rack. It also has a “non-smokers package”, which sound really healthy.
Anyway, in order to afford this (which we totally can’t, because we’re in debt as it is) I’m going to have to get rid of the other cars. Of course.
My husband has said “no way.”It’s too expensive. We can’t afford it. He wants to “talk” it over and negotiate. Figure out a “reasonable” solution.
NO way. He’s not going to hold our family hostage. How can we NOT afford to have a new car? It’s SHINY. It will get us places. We all agree something needs to be done. Make no mistake about it. My husband’s ideological crusade against this new car is like holding a gun to our family. Let me be clear – I will not negotiate.
So I’m shutting down the family until he agrees to buy me a brand new, $136,000 car. I don’t know where he’s going to get the money, because we don’t have it. Perhaps someone will loan it to us.
