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.

Get out.

Thats my point of view, what's yours?

you know the economy here in Michigan is just now starting to pick up so if you guys think raising gas up again is smart your wrong because we will go back to no jobs again so why dont you all stop and think about what your doing stop giving are tax money away and use it like your suppose to

As gasoline prices go up, and people buy less, our state and federal cancer seeks the lifeblood of new tisue. Mestasticizing a new tax allows the tumor to invade the body without compromising the original nutrient base. The patient, unable to ride a bicycle to work, must accept the prognosis of third worldism. An experimental new treatment offers the greatest hope to the afflicted. T.E.A., when applied by the vote, promises to shrink cancer thereby eliminating it's need for intrusion.

More tax, less business, less health availability, less spiritual education, less education, more third world activities. Bye USA liberty for the free!

Here's an idea. Let's tax all politicians that come up with more ways to waste our money. Sick, sick to death of politicians doing this to the U.S. people. Here is another great idea whose time has come. Start living within your means and stop giving money to foreign nations and stop trying to give benefits from Social Security to illegals that have not paid into the system. ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Letters like this need to be on the NEWS more.
