Disgusting.  Borrow 300 billion from China to invade Iraq and then tax
people for conserving oil.  I can't make any sense of it.

It shouldn't be any surprise that the subject has come up again. IIRC,
Oregon (?) was looking at it earlier and may still be looking at it.

The basic problem is that fuel taxes were used as a way of financing road
maintenance in the first place. The two are loosely related, and that was
deemed good enough by the legislators of old looking for a source of
revenue... it got them the revenue stream they wanted. It was Miller time!
What is being suggested now is a familiar situation to computer
programmers - the underlying structure is awry and any attempt to fix the
new problem without fixing the structure (the tax structure in this case) is
doomed to make the problem worse.

Hi this is Michael C. Dengler agian ,What you say is so true and it is
how the government handles are "Taxes" if they wood only budget there
money as people budget there money to handle house payments and car
payments ect.
and live within there means so that we wood not have to carry the
burden and pain of
not living free of losing A lot of money because the goverment cannot
mannage it
right they should learn to budget like the rest of us and not have a
endless pit of are money to
pull from and when the run out they shrip us of are right to live by
makeing us poor by taxing the
hell out of us I sincerly hope they do not do  this they say on the
news that they are thinking that they wood like to charge everyone 60
cents A mile driven every year  so that they can build there
roads and have A longer conpain for hybrids because they do not use A
lot of gas
 that  scares me with the 2006 prius i'm am buying so what the hybrid
not pay A lot of tax due to the amount of gas used
 I do not think people should be punished for saving the enviroment
but rewarded buy not pay a lot of money for gas and that means they
will not pay A lot of tax but
they do save the enviroment and saving money on gas should be there
reward for that car and the car cost A little more than other cars so
people of the the united states of america should have choice but the
goverment makes it harder on us so it is easier on them they where put
in office buy us so they should work for us but it seems the other way
around they just should do there best to do there jobs and  budget
money instead of wasting it if thats what we pay them to do so they
should do it or either do there best by us or do not get reelected
thats what I thinks thanks Michael C. Dengler
