For a stupid reason, the Tesla Model Y and Mustang Mach-E missed out on the $7,500 credit.

It is a regrettable oversight on the part of the federal government to not extend the $7,500 tax credit to Tesla's Model Y and the Mustang Mach-E.

 It is wrong that two automobiles,

 both of which were produced by American businesses,

are not eligible for the same incentives as those enjoyed by their rivals.

 It is a bad policy choice that will simply restrict consumer options and punish potential buyers.

 Instead of discouraging the manufacturing of electric vehicles, the government ought to encourage it.
