A new Congressional Budget Office study says taxing motorists based on the number of miles they drive would be a fair and "efficient" way to charge motorists for the real cost of using the nation's highways.
"Vehicle-miles traveled" taxes (or VMT taxes) also would provide a strong incentive for people to drive less.
These crazy ideas always come from northeasterners who take the train or don't have cars.
They don't understand our lifestyle down here.
But, even so- the biggest problem I always have with the uber left is they want to give up and say we have to have less.
I say have more. I say cut spending in D.C.
And if we pay per mile, who is going to enforce this.
I guess all new cars will come with a mileage checker on the odometer. If you have an older car, you can pay to get one put on there.
And comrade if there is a milage police just who will be that person.
"ah...hey Chesner....looks like you have been driving too much...there."
The toilet paper tax the politician suggested this week from Omaha makes more sense to me than this stupid idea.
More regulation from the government.
They need to stay out of our lives as much as they can.
Thats my point of view, what's yours?
