You Think Fuel Taxes Are Bad?
In an idea that could only be dreamed up by a Bureaucrat, Britain's Transport Secretary wants to tax you by the mile instead of using fuel taxes. He doesn't seem to care that this scheme obviously would require a new bureacracy and much more complication. The Brits aren't the only loonies though. Some American bureaucrats want to tax aircraft use in much the same way and with the same consequences. Maybe the U.S. will do the same on its highways.
