Biden regime Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has indicated that he may push for a mileage tax on Americans that will require them to pay the government for traveling too much. The move would help pay for Biden’s $3 trillion infrastructure bill, and “shows a lot of promise” according to Buttigieg.
When asked by an NBC reporter is he supported a mileage tax, Buttigieg said, “I think that shows a lot of promise. 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 it; it’s not anymore,” Buttigieg added. “So, a so-called vehicle miles traveled tax or a mileage tax, whatever you want to call it, could be the way to do it.”
A mileage-based tax shows a lot of promise, @SecretaryPete says about funding President Biden's infrastructure package. Revenue generation will most likely come from several different sources. "We've got to think big; it's got to be transformative." t.co/QY1JvWXXOA pic.twitter.com/4R2CD6KaZV
