    Fed gas tax needs to be raised, not scrapped. And Obama needs to shut his fucking yap about oil company "profits". Even now, the U.S. profits way more on a gallon of gas than any oil company ever did.

    And while he's at it- remove the $40+ billion in O&G taxes that are in his proposed budget.

    Pay per mile isn't anything new. Trucks have been paying that in addition to fuel tax for years.

    So that explains this. Let's see, if we need to raise the Highway Trust Fund $44 billion, and if the US profits more than the oil companies, then all we have to do is sit back and do nothing. The US government will get that much alone from Exxon by the end of this year.

    Yup...if it is true that the government makes more than the oil companies and Exxon Mobile profits are in the 40 billion dollar range, that's right! Cool.

    I would think that this would receive the conservative stamp of approval. After all, it's a consumption tax. Isn't that supposed to be the "moral" kind of tax?

    Who said that? A consumption tax may make sense only if we repeal the 16th amendment
