Can You Believe It? Another Tax On Driving
As if we aren’t stuck paying a tax on this, that and the other, can you believe someone is considering a “tax-by-the-mile” fee?
Wait a minute. We paid tax on the car when we bought it. Registration fee. Fee for the plates. Insurance. Huge percentage of the pump price for gas is state and federal tax. Now, a tax on actually driving?
Sure, backers say those who drive the most SHOULD pay the most. We already do. ( I drive a lot ) The more you drive, the more gas you use — the more tax is generated.
Is there any end to it all?
