IF you want to know what the gov is good at just look at their newest epiphany. Why not Tax on Electric Cars? .
Because people are driving less, less gas taxes are being collected. And because Electric Cars do not pay gas taxes they further exacerbate the revenue shortfall. "We need more revenue" cry the politicians. And the idea they come up with? First we can offer a one time tax incentive to buy an electric car and then tax the buyer as long as they own the car.
These avaricious blood suckers make the common leech appear benign.
Federal excise taxes on gasoline were implemented in June 1932. The Revenue Act of 1932 was designed to increase the amount of money the government had at its disposal. The 1-cent gas tax was set to expire at the end of June 1933 (the last day of fiscal year 1933).
But,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,GASP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bet your are shocked! It not only Did Not Expire in 1932 the tax went from One Cent to Over EIghteen Cents today. And,,,,,,,,, almost none of it goes to highways.
The problem for people who want more government, is the simple fact they are not getting the government now, for which, they are paying.
