I was referring to tax incentives to get you to buy something like an electric car from Tesla.
So you're fine with tax credits that you like, just not the ones you don't like?
Is it OK to get tax credits for education? For having children? For health insurance? For saving into a 401(k)? For adopting a child? For insulating your home? Mortgage interest? I can see 20 credits for individuals in total. Note that credits for a Tesla only apply to businesses, not individuals.
So looking at the individual credits it seems to me that the government is saying: get educated, have kids, get health insurance, save for retirement, adopt children, make your home more energy efficient, buy a home. Doesn't seem unreasonable at all.
