Obama’s Creepy Tax

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - May• 05•11

President Obama is now considering a plan to tax American drivers based on how many miles they drive, The Hill reports this morning. The idea is to include an electronic tracking device on every American vehicle, which would record the number of miles driven.  Drivers would pay the federal tax each time they fill up at a gas station (where they already pay federal and state tax on every gallon of gas they pump.)

The ostensible reason for the tax would be raising money for highway maintenance.  I wonder what ever happened to all that stimulus funding?

Is there no end to the machinations from the Washington gremlins?  Could they arrive at a creepier tax scheme?
