Dear Federal Government; Thank you for helping average Americans find life more affordable, especially those of us living on fixed social security incomes, who will no longer be able to purchase the America’s #1 Favorite Car – which happens to be a truck.

Author’s Comment:

Conflict of Interest statement:  I do not own a pickup truck or a Ford.  I do not own, as far as I know, any stock in the Ford Motor Company.  I am; however, a native U.S. Citizen and I do vote, every election (politicians take note!).

Thanks for reading.
