Don't be surprised to see some asshole, somewhere in government, declare that it should be illegal to repair your own car without "training", let alone build one.

And they can do it through existing regulations I order to regulate CO2, all vehicles must have these controls implemented in an approved devices, which are only available for $2000, unless you build at least 100,000 cars a year, then they are $12.87.

No, the argument is that people will do what people do, which is increase their expenses as their income increases.

When they have to cut back, they won't, and instead end up on the six o'clock news whining that it's so unfair and that they should get to keep the house they can no longer afford. We've seen this before.

To the landlord belongs the doorknobs.
