“The American Family Needs Large Vehicles Too”

In a story he tells today in U.S. News and World Report, Peter Roff and his family go out for custard, finding themselves at the same frozen custard store as President Obama and his eleven SUVs and vans (not counting the ambulance).  Peter doesn’t begrudge the President his big-vehicle motorcade. He figures the President and the Secret Service need big vehicles.  What he does is wonder is why our mileage-standard-tightening President won’t return the favor, because, as Peter put it, “the American family needs large vehicles, too.”  E-mail any comments to the National Center for Public Policy Research at [email protected].
