Leave it to liberals to come up with ways to make people’s lives miserable- and un-affordable! As if times aren’t tough enough for the folks in Illinois, a Democrat senator has come up with the ingenious idea of a “pay per mile” tax! 

Not only does Democrat Illinois Senate President John Cullerton want a “pay per mile” tax but he also wants to increase the state’s motor fuel tax by 30 cents per gallon!

This increase would make the gas tax in Illinois the highest in the country, at 60 cents per gallon, according to WEEK.

The “pay per mile” bill would create a new tax for every mile you drive on Illinois roadways.

Drivers, under the plan, could pick whether a device in their cars monitors their miles one of two different ways. Or they could choose to pay the 1.5-cent-per-mile tax on a base 30,000 miles traveled per year, if they have privacy concerns, according to the Daily Herald.

One device would track where specifically drivers go and not charge them when they travel out of state or on Illinois toll roads. The other would simply monitor the odometer reading, not tracking the rest of the information.

Illinois drivers would get a refund for gasoline tax costs paid at the pump, Cullerton said. Out-of-state drivers not registered here would pay those taxes as usual.

More on this from Conservative Tribune:

This pay-per-mile tax is an example of why liberalism simply doesn’t work for the people. Democrats have long bemoaned the use of fossil fuels and driving gas-guzzling vehicles like SUVs. In response, many people have bought more fuel-efficient vehicles, which means gas tax revenues have fallen.

So, there must be a tax to make up for it lost revenue. Cullerton is literally looking to pushing those who have done what he wanted them to do in the first place and reduce gasoline consumption.

It’s a perfect example yet another liberal failing to understand the unforeseen consequences of It only makes sense in the mind of a liberal and, unfortunately, we have far too many of them in power who can make ridiculous legislation like this a reality. And many citizens agree:

Liberals. This whole situation reminds me of a great Beatles song- TAXMAN.

Let me tell you how it will be
There’s one for you, nineteen for me
Cos I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet
Truer words have never been spoken.

God Bless.

VOTE FOR DONALD J. TRUMP! TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
