    President Obama is floating an idea to tax drivers based on the number of miles they drive.

    (Washington) The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive.
    The plan is a part of the administration's "Transportation Opportunities Act," an undated draft of which was obtained this week by Transportation Weekly.

      A Hyped up article. The Original proposal was to institute a Gasoline Tax that would go towards the Debt. Go back to the Goverment, and it has been changed and re-vamped sense then. Not what the article is sugesting.

        Go back to the Government, you have to be joking. Our Government is not reliable any more.

    Gas is already taxed, so basically the more you drive the more you pay. That is hardly new.

      Well, if it cost me, OH, $40.00 to fill my car and I drive 400 miles on that tank. Now he is thinking about taxing me for that 400 miles + what it cost me to fill my car.

        Just for people who earn less than 250K. Or is it some other number? I forget. I think he thinks I am a millionaire or billionaire. The billionaires are liberals. They want the middle class to pay higher taxes. The millionaires are small businesses filing as a sole proprietor.

    I suppose if you live in an urban area where public transportation is available this might encourage you to use it, but if you live in a rural area with little or no public transportation, being taxed on your mileage would be a catastrophe.

    Sorry Ron, no lies just FACTS. If you have read my previous threads, you would see I do not lie. Everything I write is based in facts, and I do not mean what newspapers or articles posted. Those are just opinions. In this case I will cite just one of Obamas tax increases. His Health care bill, oh sorry, I did say one  but the health bill has many increases in it. And yes, I have read the health care bill
