Rand Paul: A Tax Per Mile You Drive "May Be The Dumbest Idea I've Heard This Week!"

The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive.


Among other things, CBO suggested that a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax could be tracked by installing electronic equipment on each car to determine how many miles were driven; payment could take place electronically at filling stations.-Obama administration floats draft plan to tax cars by the mile

George Will made a shocking prediction. The last Republican standing to face Barack Obama next year will be Tim Pawlenty. God help us! Pawlenty recently showed he is for big intrusive government by expressing his willingness to tax Americans per mile they drive, which means more technology in your car to report your habits to government.-George Will Picks Tim "Gonna Tax You Per Mile You Drive" Pawlenty as the Republican Nominee


  1. How many more liberties are we willing to give up? I can't believe that a proposal like this would even be considered in the United States. Giving in to all of this government control is the same as giving in to be a slave. I for one support Rand Paul, I believe young conservative politicians like him are the future of the conservative party.

    Wake up America!

  2. Young conservative politicians? At 48, I wouldn't consider that young any any standard except maybe within the Republican Party or when discussing paleontology...

    Maybe Paul should talk to his freshman Republican congresspeople about why they're pushing so hard for the tax.
