Hat tip: tax green propaganda
March 1, 2009
The Washington Post again editorialized today in favor of taxing us by the mile driven instead of by the gallon of gas purchased.
Appearing near the Post editorial is a letter from Gerry Rosenthal of Great Falls, Virgina:
Perhaps there should be a tax on every editorial you write. Then you would feel the pain of being charged just for doing your job. I drive to visit my clients regularly, to generate income. The last thing I need is to be penalized for getting out there to support my family.
Your focus is misguided. The auto manufacturers’ lack of ingenuity should be the target, not me.
A further thought. Many people get their copies of the Washington Post by home delivery, which inevitably involves someone driving a car. Leave it to the liberal media to advocate a tax that would hurt its own employees and business.
No wonder newspapers are dying.
