    Default Taxifornia is at it again!

    How many of you liberals support this latest proposal for the State of California?
    A tax for every mile you drive!
    Of course they already take billions at the pump but this is new!

    San Fran. at its best. How would they implement this? I would never take my car in to have some sort of GPS put in it. Its amassing they are trying every way they can to raise/Tax money, but not one word on what to cut.

    From another link I found.


    Randy Rentschler, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, said the plan for a vehicle miles traveled tax, or VMT, could take up to a decade to implement if it is embraced by the public.

    We have discussed this before. HELL yes I support it. The current method is ineffective, random, and needs to be revamped. Combine the VLF's paid to the state wiht the new miles traveled tax that takes into consideration weight, miles and age of the vehicle and you weill have much more equitable taxation.

    P.S. I love the "driving tax" name. Goes well with "car tax" "death tax" "death panel" "Socialist" etc.

    I Will move if this is implemented. CA can kiss it's $10,000+/year in taxes goodbye.

    I just paid $15.28 for 48 cans of soda. $3.44 of it was tax. This is a 30% rate on ALREADY TAXED income.

    Maybe we can implement a wipe tax, each time we wipe our ass we'll be billed $0.10 by the state. We can install state cameras and get officials to oversee that the correct amount of wipes reported each year are correct.

    I only disagree with one of them. The death tax is indeed a tax triggered by death. If it was taxed as income to the heir, you could make the argument that the name is wrong. But the tax isn't an income tax. It's a separate tax paid for with a tax return with the dead person's name on it and no one else.

    Death tax is correct. Unless they change it to tax the money as income for the heir, the term death tax is 100% accurate.

    I would hope he's for eliminating the current gas taxes in lieu of this new method.

    Do we tax you or the person that wipes it for you?

    Remove only the state portion of the gasoline tax. The Federal and local taxes are a separate issue. Now, if you want to implement a federal mileage tax, then that is another story.

    I can't beleive there are actually people who think like you. Amassing. I mean really if you think your not paying enough tax in this state there is no body holding you back by paying more. Just send your 5k-10k extra in at the end of the year.

    I don't see why I have to pay a tax to go to a place of business I'm going to pay state income taxes for the wages I earn and then also again on the goods and service I buy. The only reason I can't live right next door the the company is because I can't afford a house there. It's a poor tax. It's commerce killing. It's completely stupid.

    The government is mandating these highly efficient cars. All it's going to do is dry their coffers. Our overall fuel cost will not go down because they have to raise taxes to maintain the revenue. In theory it should go down, but we know as the government ages it gets less and less efficient eating up any sort of savings we hoped to have.

    My fiance would have to quit her job over this. It's barely worth it go now based on the distance she has to travel. So CA will lose both fuel taxes and income tax on this.

    This is so short sighted and naive. I bet a career government worker thought of this.
