They are Coming For You – 8 Cent Per Mile Tax Study Buried in Infrastructure Bill
Surprise Surprise! Guess what is buried in the Socialist Infrastructure bill? Besides all of the pork and fat and socialist programs there is a tax test – study you might call it where the Government charges you a 8 cent per mile road use tax.
Lets think about this – If you drive 15,000 miles a year then you will be paying $1,200 in additional taxes.
Yes, this Infrastructure bill will be paid for by the rich! Didn’t Nancy Pelosi just flash the white supremist sign when she thought she was making a zero? Didn’t she just say this bill won’t cost you anything?
The government continues to lie to you. Those who voted for Biden and Harris should be proud of themselves.
This new road tax; should the study prove to work, which it will, you can be assured that it is going to hit the poor and middle class hard. The reason they said we must look at things like this is because the gasoline tax isn’t enough. Electric cars don’t pay a gasoline tax, so therefore the revenue is falling.
We pay hundreds if not thousands of dollars in gas tax dollars each year. Electric car owners – it has been suggested will pay a higher registration fee nationwide like in California. In California the fee is $175 per year (much lower than the proposed 8 cents per mile) The people that live in rural areas again are hit hardest because they commute the farthest. Those that live in rural areas that have to drive for services will pay. It isn’t the rich.
I drive a company car and work at multiple locations. I average 50,000 miles per year. That is a $4,000 tax that my employer will be paying for me – and where will that cost be passed? It will be passed on to the cost of goods and services. That bus or taxi you are in – that cost will be passed directly on to you in the form of increased fairs.
There is nothing good about a socialist regime running our government. They are going to work hard to take everything they can from you to pay for their socialist power grab.
Democrats – Liberals – I ask you to open your eyes. You will be paying for these things along with everyone else even if you are on a socialist program getting free money. This tax won’t be something you won’t have to pay. I bet you will be charged a fee to go to a service center each year to have your mileage certified so they can bill you.
Keep in mind that disconnecting your speedometer won’t work. The computers and vehicle speed sensors require that to function so there is one escape. Buy a 1970 to 1980 clunker and disconnect the speedometer. It will be interesting to see what happens – but I am guessing that some math genius will have already calculated the distance from your home to work and will be charging you a base tax anyway.
What do you think? Is an 8 cent per mile tax for road maintenance a good thing or a bad thing? You already know what I am thinking.
