Benjamin Franklin once said, "Two things in life are certain: death and taxes," and at this point in life, I find that to be truer than ever. The government is looking for more and more ways to tax Americans and squeeze every last penny our of pockets!
As gas prices soar, President Joe Biden and the Democrats are pushing a car tax to tax us per mile that we drive!
Now, the San Diego Association of Governments' (SANDAG) board has decided to implement a 4-cent-per-mile tax after a virtual meeting on met Oct. 29. They claim that the proposed mileage tax will eventually replace gas taxes.
San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond stated that their intent is to “force everyone onto trolleys and buses."
“This proposal should never see the light of day,” Desmond explained. “San Diegans already pay some of the highest prices to drive in the country. From the current gas taxes to a vehicle registration tax, San Diegans feel the effects, in their wallets, every day.
“Adding another tax, to fund public transportation, is a slap in the face,” he noted. “I will not support any new taxes or fees upon San Diegans until the promised projects are completed.”
Epoch Times reports:
The proposed tax would help pay for SANDAG’s long-term regional plan—an ambitious 30-year, $160 billion proposal which could include no-cost public transit and a 200-mile, $43 billion regional rail network.
Dorothy Martin, who moved to San Deigo from Los Angeles due to the cleaner environment, opposed the proposal.
“I think that we have something to be thankful for in San Diego County,” said Martin, “[but this proposal] is taking a lot of revenue from North County and applying it to projects and other parts of the county that we don’t see a direct benefit.”
“I feel that it would punish me, for example, as a driver of a personal vehicle for my business, personal and recreational use of those vehicles. I think that is something that is [an] infringement on my freedom,” added Martin.
The board is expected to review the item further on Dec. 10.
I truly hope that this bill never sees the light of day. It is outrageous to tax on literally mileage of a vehicle we already pay taxes on, on top of the gas that we pay taxes on. Taxation is theft!
