    Fresh from victory with the passage of the obamatax, democrats are ready to fight for the next tax. The mileage tax.

    Seems like all those fuel efficient cars are cutting into gas tax revenue so a new tax is needed.

    Mileage tax a "practical option," budget analysts tell Congress - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    The Obama administration wants to spend $556 billion over the next six years on transportation projects, but they may have to get creative to pay for them. One "practical option" could be taxing drivers based on their mileage, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is reporting.


    The CBO has released a report on a potential mileage tax at the behest of Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad (N.D.), the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, the Hill reports. While tracking mileage was once considered infeasible, the CBO concluded that new technologies have changed that.


    "Now, electronic metering and billing are making per-mile charges a practical option," the report said.

    This country doesn't have long to last. Europe WILL implode, and so will we. There will come a point when we can't pay the interest on our debt, and all these taxes will kill ALL business and bleed the people dry, and America will implode, and it's not that far off. It's going to get worse before it gets better... MUCH worse, like Civil/Revolutionary War/Anarchy worse.

    You what new technology that is? All new cars have cell phones with tracking tech built into them. Don't believe me? Research it for yourself.

    I'm not talking about a slick cell phone that mounts on your dash that YOU can use, no no no. I'm talking about one that is put in an area you don't see and can't get to.

    You guys already know about that electronic "Easy Pass" system for Tolls right? Well just imagine one being built into your car at the factory and as a condition of sale you have to activate it on the showroom floor.

    "Easy Pass" will soon be "Easy Fleece".

    I expect any day now to hear that the government has put a tax on sex. With the way the government is screwing us, they could take in some real money with a tax on sex.

    That's new cars. There will have to be some way of dealing with old cars that don't have that technology. Those owners will have to have them installed, probably as a condition of registering the car.

    Unless the government mandates that everyone buy a new car.

    the reason being is that truckers underfund the very roads they use to make money. Here where I live the county wanted to put a tax on the people for the waterway that is used for floats and swimming, camping, but the camp sites around here volunteered to pay the tax because they considered that they were the ones using the public access and patrolmen for their profit. In NW Ark they were going to put up a mileage tax, but the trucking firms told the govt. they would pay it since they benifited from the roads.

    Legalize prostitution and tax it. All the whores that don't include the tax can be prosecuted for income tax evasion.

    wow

    That's just fucked up.


    so now people that live in the country, cuz it's cheaper, and commute to the cities will now be taxed out of their savings.

    or, move too a city to avoid the tax

    That's a win win for the tyrants
