California County Proposes Overreaching Tax on Drivers to Charge Them Per Mile!
You’ve heard the saying before…in life there are two things that are guaranteed. Those two things are death and taxes and that sentiment has never been more true than it is today.
Our Founding Fathers raised hell over a tax on tea centuries ago and now look at where we are today. We get taxed for absolutely everything and all Congress and Joe Biden try to do is find more ways to tax us even more.
The ultimate goal is as plain as day. They want us to become fully reliant on the government for everything. Eventually, we’ll be paying so much in taxes that a person won’t even be able to make it in life without depending on the government for something. Of course, there will be strings attached as there always is.
We always see more taxes being added on, but we never see them taken away…except with President Trump.
Now, San Diego, California is proposing what liberals in Congress have been pushing towards for some time now, and that is taxing people for each mile that they drive.
According to the Epoch Times,
San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond said the proposal was intended to “force everyone onto trolleys and buses” by pricing people out of their cars.
“This proposal should never see the light of day,” Desmond said. “San Diegans already pay some of the highest prices to drive in the country. From the current gas taxes to a vehicle registration tax, San Diegans feel the effects in their wallets every day.
“Adding another tax to fund public transportation is a slap in the face,” he said. “I will not support any new taxes or fees upon San Diegans until the promised projects are completed.”
The proposed tax would help pay for SANDAG’s long-term regional plan—an ambitious 30-year, $160 billion proposal which could include no-cost public transit and a 200-mile, $43 billion regional rail network.
Dorothy Martin, who moved to San Deigo from Los Angeles due to the cleaner environment, opposed the proposal.
“I think that we have something to be thankful for in San Diego County,” said Martin, “[but this proposal] is taking a lot of revenue from North County and applying it to projects and other parts of the county that we don’t see a direct benefit.”
“I feel that it would punish me, for example, as a driver of a personal vehicle for my business, personal and recreational use of those vehicles. I think that is something that is [an] infringement on my freedom,” added Martin.
The board is expected to review the proposal further next month. Hopefully, it gets denied immediately.
