Biden Admin Classifies Martha's Vineyard And Other Elite Enclaves 'Low-Income'...

•, by Tyler Durden

Some of the wealthiest liberal enclaves in the country are being classified by the Biden administration as "low-income" in order to qualify for an electric vehicle (EV) charger subsidy program contained within the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the Daily Caller reports.

The locales includes Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, as well as Montauk and Fishers Island in New York. Yes, the same Martha's Vineyard that freaked out over a few migrants on their hallowed soil.

The administration's EV charger tax credit program — made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), President Joe Biden's signature climate bill — is specifically designed to route subsidies to "low-income" or "non-urban" areas of the country. The "low-income" emphasis for eligibility aligns in spirit with the Biden administration's wider pursuit of so-called "environmental justice," which is effectively the combination of social justice ideology and green policy.

Numerous elite hangouts and locales — including Montauk and Fishers Island in New York, and parts of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket in Massachusetts — are among the areas that the administration has classified as "low-income" and eligible for receipt of EV charger subsidies, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of the Department of Energy's (DOE) interactive eligibility map.

The nationwide charging network is a central plank of the Biden administration's EV agenda. While plenty of charging stations are located in wealthy areas (where people can afford EVs), the IRA was supposed to blunt the costs of charger construction in non-urban, less wealthy areas of the country that would be less likely to implement them on their own.
