FFS. Doing something like that will lose the Dems 75% of the voters.
Yeah, joking aside this seems like a very terrible idea.

They tried to do something like this in Utah in the most recent legislative session. It didn't go very far.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

OK, I'm reading more about it and it sounds interesting. Seems less regressive than the current taxes on gas.

Surely the part about the drivers was a joke?

It's probably a great idea in the abstract.

But it's something for a lame-duck Democratic congress and administration to do *after* they've lost, because it will be hated.

Plus, didn't Biden just say that he won't raise taxes on families making less than $400K?

I thought it was an obvious lame corporatist joke.

Assuming it replaces the gas tax, which in some states hasn’t changed in 40 years, it could at least be a more efficient and fair way to distribute the burden. Those electric vehicle pansies would finally pull their weight for one thing.

I've been told that even if people save money or receive greater services, anything that's called a tax is DOA and the country can and should never consider it.

I agree that in the long run, when electric cars are commonplace, we’ll need VMTs to fund highways. But I don’t think we’re anywhere near that point yet. Plus I think it’s too early to remove one of the incentives to buy electric.

I can't believe this thread has fallen all the way to the bottom of the second page. SMDH.

Anyway ...
