Multiple States Propose Charging You for Every Mile You Drive
According to Fox Business, several states are pondering over implementing a mileage tax as a means of generating revenue to maintain their roads. The reason behind this move is decreasing profits from fuel taxes as a result of inflation and higher fuel-efficient and electric vehicles on the roads. We have none other than Joe Biden and the Democrats to thank for this.
One of the current proposals being considered is the mileage tax, which could be frustrating to deal with. It seems that drivers would need to install a device in their vehicle and set up an account to collect data on the miles traveled.
Do you feel comfortable giving this information to the government? Do you trust that they won’t manipulate the data?
In 2015, Oregon, an ultra-liberal state, implemented a pilot program on road usage charges. Utah and Virginia also generate revenue from these charges. Currently, there is a discussion of making pilot programs on mileage tax obligatory. Following the same path, Hawaii plans to implement this system next year. There are also reports of other states testing electronic toll systems.
Some states are considering implementing taxes on electricity at car charging stations and adding fees for door-to-door deliveries. Additionally, the Biden administration will soon begin a $125 million “pilot” program for mileage taxes, which is part of the infrastructure bill signed into law in November 2021.
Although the proposal is mostly negative, one positive aspect is that electric vehicle drivers may have to pay for repair costs instead of using the roads for free. The inflation and its consequences that are affecting working-class Americans are a result of the Biden administration’s spending policies, beginning with the American Rescue Plan and continued with further unnecessary spending.
In August, Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act on orders from the Regime. The act provides subsidies worth billions of dollars to help Americans purchase electric vehicles (EVs). This is meant to decrease the amount of money spent on gas by increasing the number of EVs on the road.
In April, the Biden administration announced stricter efficiency standards for cars and trucks, with the ultimate aim of phasing out gas-powered vehicles. However, the new requirements might actually hinder the administration’s goal to eliminate fossil fuels and gasoline-powered cars. Some believe that the most effective way to stop this plan is to remove Joe Biden from office. I’m inclined to agree.
