This could have some chilling effects on all of us.. Ecpecially if we go to the milage based taxes off of GPS devices in our cars..
Therefore, you am.
Mile based taxation has been around in a way for a long time in the form of fuel taxes. If another tax was added to miles driven, it would definitely give some pause before taking the RV out of storage. Many look forward to traveling in their retirement years and something like this could be a deal breaker. The trickle down effect would have a negative impact on many industries in this nation. Goodbye to "See the USA"
VMT or Vehicle Miles Traveled will replace the gas tax on the federal side and fund the maintenance on all federal highways like the Interstates and US route numbered highways. States may still continue to collect a gas tax to pay for maintenance on state and county roads.
I've yet to see a tax ever be rescinded when a "replacement" has been introduced.
I say just raise the gas tax. They've always been stressing to save gas and now that they are, they realize tax gas revenues are falling. Just raise the gas tax. Imposing a new mileage tax would just create more work and expense that taxpayers have to foot the bill for.
I think that our government today does not care what "we the people" want. So stop numbing your brain cells worrying about this stuff.
They are trying to do the same locally with Solar, a few years ago there was a big push to get home owners to go solar. Now the Power Company is complaining they are losing money to those with Solar. Water Company wants higher rates now that people are conserving water as asked, not enough profit from rates because of low volume usage. Gas Company has a special low usage fee they assess if we have a warm winter here to make up for drop in revenue.
With all the mileage improvements, hybrids and all electric cars the Gov. is not getting enough money to spend on "entitlements". You do know gas tax money is stolen for other entitlements, not Road infrastructure.
Think about it, why the extra steps to get mileage, gas tax is largely a mileage tax, but now varies according to your vehicle mileage. They want you to conserve but when you do their spending money goes down so gotta find a better way to get more out of your pocket!!!
