ICYMI: Biden's Transportation Secretary Open to Taxing Drivers for Each Mile They Drive

**UPDATE** Buttigieg has apparently backtracked a tad.

It’s just bad idea after bad idea with this “administration.” As of right now, Joe Biden certainly has a place as one of the worst presidents of all-time (and he has only been in office for just over two months).

Check this out, via The Daily Wire:

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was ridiculed on social media on Friday for expressing openness to a policy that would pay for President Joe Biden’s massive infrastructure budget by taxing motorists for each mile they drive.

“So, I think that shows a lot promise,” Buttigieg said regarding a mileage-based tax during an interview with CNBC. “If we believe in that so-called ‘user-pays principle,’ the idea that part of how we pay for roads is you pay based on how much you drive. The gas tax used to be the obvious way to do that; it’s not anymore.”

Pete said, “So, a so-called ‘vehicle-miles-traveled tax’ or ‘mileage tax,’ whatever you want to call it, could be a way to do it.”


This policy would not only be a tax, but a way for the nanny state to watch over people even more closely.
