In my Week-ends blog yesterday, one of my OUTRAGES OF THE WEEK was the increasing chatter about raising gas taxes. Sure, just when gasoline falls to a manageable price, political dunderheads want to jack up taxes, while the economy is still struggling.
There are more crazy ideas aimed at attacking you right in the wallet in hopes you’ll abandon your automobile.
In the city by the Bay, motorists could be charged a fee if they dare wander into heavier-traveled areas.
But here’s the real stinker. Some states want to charge you based on the number of miles you drive. How would they know your mileage? They plan to plant a GPS monitor in your car, that’s how.
Tax, tax, tax, tax, tax. Fee on top of fee.
It’s the solution to everything.
