Obama Administration Proposes Substituting Federal Gas Tax with New Model Based On Miles Driven | Cleveland Leader
Obama Administration Proposes Substituting Federal Gas Tax with New Model Based On Miles Driven | Cleveland Leader: "Perhaps the Republicans were right - a Democrat in office does in fact mean bigger government along with unnecessary intrusion into the lives of American citizens. Funnily enough a Republican member of President Barack Obama's administration is now proposing a new kind of tax that is not likely to go over well with anyone that owns a vehicle. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said on Friday that he backs a plan to tax motorists based on how many mles they drive rather than the ages old standard method of taxing gasoline based on usage."
