AYFKM?: Taxing Mileage? (UPDATED)

The ends this government will go to in order to ensure that they get their pound of flesh, and that the moos modify their behavior are ABSOLUTELY ASTOUNDING!  It’s time to slam a triple espresso America and mount up.

CBO: Taxing mileage a ‘practical option’ for revenue enhancement

By Pete Kasperowicz – 03/24/11 04:17 PM ET

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) this week released a report that said taxing people based on how many miles they drive is a possible option for raising new revenues and that these taxes could be used to offset the costs of highway maintenance at a time when federal funds are short.

The report discussed the proposal in great detail, including the development of technology that would allow total vehicle miles traveled (VMT) to be tracked, reported and taxed, as well as the pros and cons of mandating the installation of this technology in all vehicles.

“In the past, the efficiency costs of implementing a system of VMT charges — particularly the costs of users’ time for slowing and queuing at tollbooths — would clearly have outweighed the potential benefits from more efficient use of highway capacity,” CBO wrote. “Now, electronic metering and billing are making per-mile charges a practical option.”

The report was requested by Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), who held a hearing on transportation funding in early March. In that hearing, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said the Obama administration is hoping to spend $556 billion over the next six years, much of which would go to federal transportation improvement projects.

Conrad said in response that federal funds are tight, and in asking for recommendations on how to raise that money, he noted the possibility of a VMT tax as a way to solve the problem of collecting less in taxes as people move to more fuel-efficient vehicles.

What an excellent idea considering a gallon of gas is only going to increase exponentially with every Middle Eastern country that caves to globalist schemes and pressure.

I guess you American moos haven’t yet figured out that you all need to be unemployed, on food stamps and waiting in the bread lines for your overlord to promise you free gas and rent while your children starve to death.  Hurry up already!  Stop being so resourceful!  Stop being so resilient and just roll over for the NWO globalists!

Obamacare: More Tracking Information For The Government Tax Collector

Remember Empress Pelosi?

She was actually speaking the truth about passing the Obamacare atrocity so that there is a complete and total bill that we can read to find goodies like the expansion of the 1099 Tax Law.  Please keep in mind the bigger picture of tracking everything the self-employed and small businesses buy and sell throughout the year.  Do you really want the government having the knowledge of how to tweak Obamacare to wring out the maximum amount of coinage from your pockets?

Gold Coin Sellers Angered by New Tax Law

Amendment Slipped Into Health Care Legislation Would Track, Tax Coin and Bullion Transactions

Those already outraged by the president’s health care legislation now have a new bone of contention — a scarcely noticed tack-on provision to the law that puts gold coin buyers and sellers under closer government scrutiny.

Section 9006 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will amend the Internal Revenue Code to expand the scope of Form 1099. Currently, 1099 forms are used to track and report the miscellaneous income associated with services rendered by independent contractors or self-employed individuals.

THIS Will Be Obama’s Waterloo: Raising Taxes

THIS Will Be Obama’s Waterloo: Raising Taxes

WE knew that Obama was lying when he said that nobody making under $250,000 would pay a single dime of taxes more. When Obama comes out and states that he was “forced” to raise taxes because of the deficit that he helped balloon with all his reckless spending, his Waterloo will be met.  In the meantime, we need to continue the work to flip this congress in 266 days and keep this asshat at bay until we can boot his butt from the White House in 2012.

Obama ‘Agnostic’ on Deficit Cuts, Won’t Prejudge Tax Increases

Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.

Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.

“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”

Obama repeatedly vowed during the 2008 presidential election campaign that he would not raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 and households earning less than $250,000 a year. When senior White House economic adviser Lawrence H. Summers and Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner suggested in August that the administration might be open to going back on that pledge, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs quickly reiterated the president’s promise.

In the interview, Obama said that putting preconditions on the agenda of a bipartisan advisory commission, which he said he would soon establish, would just undermine its purpose.
