Rural America, Prepare for Biden's
Newly-Proposed Tax

When President Joe Biden announced former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg as his pick for Transportation Secretary, many scratched their heads. Why would he tap someone who oversaw a small budget, in a small town, in the Midwest for such a roll? That puzzle is finally coming together. It turns out that Biden favors Buttigieg's transportation views, specifically the idea that America should move away from the gas tax and instead opt into a tax based on the number of miles a person travels.


This is all we need. It's 50 miles round trip to work six days a week and our grocery trips average about the same. Do they understand that many of us have zero "Public transportation" anywhere? Never mind, of course they do. AND...they will have to require us to have every vehicle monitored so that they get every penny. AND... this will be after gas prices soar. Death by a thousand cuts.

Tell the condo dwellers to put a green garden on their roof. I have enough land to grow all the food I need, animal and vegetable. Your "locally sourced" restaurants can explain how much they love that until they have to grow it themselves. Also if I do need to drive someplace my 1952 pickup doesn't have GPS and my local Sheriff (brother) is not about to arrest me. Long live the Republic of Texas.

So how will the government enforce this? Oh, I know. Everyone will be required to install a wireless GPS device that will track everywhere you go so the Big Brother can tally up your miles. What could go wrong?

#3 Hubby has a 1968 Chevy truck - might work for him. He travels 40 mi / day round trip to work. Wonder how his boss is going to love paying for the miles hubby drives for work delivering heavy equipment, trees, block, etc. to work sites.

I'll bet the ultimate goal is to have BOTH taxes, gas and mileage.

It seems to me that we already are taxed by the number of miles driven -- the more miles, the more taxed gas is consumed.

Hi #11. With more efficient gas mileage and, now, electric cars - that the feds have been mandating and pushing - they're losing tax revenue. Charging by the mile will make sure any efficient gas car or electric car owner still has to pay the "gas tax". On top of that, when / if electric cars hit the market big time, electric bills, and the taxes on electricity, will go through the roof.

A few weeks after the election, we had to drive a 3300 mile round trip to help my daughter and son-in-law move to New Mexico. I don’t enjoy being in the car that much but I kept saying to my husband that seeing all the Trump signs, banners and flags kept me going. Rural America is Trump country. This is really going to polarize everything even more.

This might not be such a bad idea. This would allow the electric car owners to pay for highways too. I have a pickup that gets 10 mpg I have to have sometimes to do the job and can't afford a separate car just for certain trips. If they did drop the gas tax, I might actually come out ahead, or at least not as far behind as the Dimocrats want.

This reminds me of when we were in a drought and the City put us on mandatory water restrictions. Then they raised the water and sewer usage rates because of lack of revenue. Then the rains came. Did they lower the rates? A purely rhetorical question. How often must we suffer through the consequences of government reacting to a (often only perceived) problem without considering the consequences of their solution(s)? Another purely rhetorical question. This is why a businessman, like Trump, is valuable - critical thinking, financial and ergonomic analysis and evaluation with a logical and an equitable solution. Someone once said we get the government we deserve. Thanks idiots!!

A little over a decade ago, I was tear-gassed for the first time. It was the first day of September in the Twin Cities, and the anti-globalist, anti-war protesters were milling about with giant papier-mache heads of the people they hated. Mark Hemingway was there. My future wife and mother of my child was inside. It was painful. Afterward, I left and set up my laptop at a nearby rooftop bar and had the best Guinness I’ve ever ordered in my life.

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters.

But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
