    California Considers Placing A Mileage Tax On Drivers

    you guys want to tax miles.....
    is there a more regressive tax???
    jesus you guys don't ever stop at screwing people.
    Isnt that one of the benefits of electric cars that you tout, cost of gas, so now you're going to tax people because you're losing revenue with more efficient cars......

    WHO KNEW This would happen, what a shock!!!!!!!!!!!!!










    PS
    Only lefties find this as a shock and those they don't knew it was going to happy and lied to everyone about these topics.

    Mileage taxes have been floated since about fifteen years ago when it was first proposed by Congress.

    O'bama's Transportation Sec Ray LaHood tried to float it too a month into his first administration, and was immediately shot down.

    Both that congress and that Secretary were Republican if you're scoring at home. Or even if you're alone.

    English is somewhat flexible. But never to this degree.

    More than several states are considering taxing Hybrid and electric cars, including the one I live in. Which is only right, because they don't pay their fair share of gas taxes.

    Regressive ? It’s more of a use tax.

    I’m not crazy about these taxes . It’s not like people have equal access to a mass transit alternative.

    From that article, everyone would pay a mileage fee. This will kill the poor. They have to live far away in many cases. They can't afford Silicon Valley. They already get killed at ~$0.50/GAL state gas tax in big (often old) gas guzzlers. Gas is still $3.00/Gal out there. 100 Gallons used per month cost you $300.

    No Tesla for poor landscaper Perez and crew you see riding 3 in the cab from 50 miles out up to the rich houses in Los Altos.

    They said nothing about "only electric". Maybe electric will be forced to pay 2x?

    Cost of living in CA is already going thru roof on utilities, trash, insurance, taxes etc. Rent is crazy too. I don't see how the poorly paid can do it?

    Oct 31, 2017 · The bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown will raise the state excise tax on gasoline by 12 cents, from 29.7 cents per gallon to 41.7 cents per gallon. The excise tax on diesel fuel will increase by 20 cents, from 16 cents per gallon to 36 cents per gallon, and the sales tax rate on diesel will increase from 9% to 13%.


    A tax on diesel......ends up costing you to buy the goods they haul into town. Thanks Brown for killing the lady buying milk and pablum for the litter.
