New Government Robbery Plan
More good news from the ‘Tax and Spenders’ Bandits. Up in Oregon, they’re working on a pay per mile tax on vehicles since with the new systems they’ll be able to calculate the theft with very little difficulty. They aren’t the only ones. Other states have this blatant robbery in mind too. Of course they’ll tie it into climate, foreign oil, blah, blah… blah. What it really means is the government dictated better fuel mileage, cleaner cars, and a host of gadgets – all of which add thousands to the cost of our vehicles all for our own good. When they get what they want, they notice the already exorbitant gas tax pot is leaking due to the improvements. Rather than cutting spending, government gnomes have to manufacture new ways to steal what they do not earn. This pay per mile theft will not only bump up the individual driver’s direct rate, it will raise every single cost to us of goods and services – food, durable goods, and delivery fees which all get passed on legitimately to the consumer. It makes me wonder how far they can go before people say no way, no how, quit spending! The addiction to entitlement programs and politicians using them to buy votes with our sweat and blood is at critical mass.
