Another New Way to Tax: Rhode Island wants to tax mileage

leave a comment »

Not only do they want to raise the state tax on gasoline, add additional taxes on fuel, raise tolls and raise registration fees, they also want to charge a half a cent per mile driven. For those that cannot do math, that’s $50 for every 10,000 miles driven. Many states including my own have floated the idea, and it’s just one more example of the government fleecing people out of their earned capital because they cannot operate within their means. That would be like me going into my boss and putting a gun to her heard and demanding a raise and getting it because I have too much debt. If individuals have to live within their means, why isn’t the government required to operate within their means? Americans have become so feckless that they accept this indentured servitude. Our forefathers went to war with England for independence for far less than we put up with. We’ve become a rather bootless and inept people, haven’t we?

Thank you for reading this blog.
