Do You Like the Obama Administration’s Plan to Keep Track of How Many Miles You Drive in Order to Tax You?

Question by Yak Rider: Do you like the Obama administration’s plan to keep track of how many miles you drive in order to tax you?,0,6754105,print.story

WASHINGTON (AP) — Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says he wants to consider taxing motorists based on how many miles they drive rather than how much gasoline they burn — an idea that has angered drivers in some states where it has been proposed….

….A tentative plan in Massachusetts to use GPS chips in vehicles to charge motorists by the mile has drawn complaints from drivers who say it’s an Orwellian intrusion by government into the lives of citizens. Other motorists say it eliminates an incentive to drive more fuel-efficient cars since gas guzzlers will be taxed at the same rate as fuel sippers.
Somebody chimes in…. “Where in this arcticle does it say that Obama himself supports this plan?”

Do you honestly believe Obama’s Secretary of Transportation would float this trial balloon if it didn’t have the administration’s backing? Do you believe Cabinet Secretaries just freelance?
I just love the “public transportation, walk, bike” suggestions. As if we all live in the projects 8 blocks from work.

Pull out of map of the United States sometime.
