The right-leaning Cato Institute today called out the states of TX and NC in their ongoing disputes, calling the dealership "legally-protected “unfree” – markets".
"The folks in place don’t like competition from the new kids on the block, so they run to the legislature for protection. Come on Texas (and North Carolina), practice what you preach. You’re making the blue states look good, and no self-respecting Texan wants that."http://www.cato.org/blog/tesla-red-state-blues
