    That's because they pay so much in taxes. Instead our taxes are raided from highway funds and instead diverted toward transit projects that are a horrible investment in terms of the return.

    Go back through the thread, its already been documented that our gas prices are so much lower than the rest of the world because of our heavy subsidies to the oil companies through our taxes.

    I thought you were opposed to higher taxes?

    Less partisan website, especially one known for using facts next time please. As for that $3.9 billion would you rather have them pay it or the rich/debt financed?

    The new plan restricts the medical expense deduction, which is commonly used by the elderly or those with a serious illness, to raise $15.2 billion in 10 years.

    Starting in 2013, you can only deduct medical expenses greater than 10 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI). Now the threshold is 7.5 percent. That increase starts for older taxpayers in 2017.
    You realize that very few people actually use this no? Furthermore, the actual use of it is during catastrophic events where the 2.5% different won't change anything relevant. Plus the relevant portion of HSAs hasn't changed. All this will do is incentivize more contributions to HSAs. Which is a good thing.

    By 2019, when the law fully kicks in, the deduction reduction will hurt 14.8 million taxpayers — 14.7 million of whom will earn less than $200,000 a year, according to the committee, whose report was obtained by The Hill newspaper.

    That includes single and joint filers and heads of households.
    Better then debt financing or I dare say taxing the rich.

    This coming from The Master of putting words in other people's mouths they never uttered and arguing those points because you were getting your ass kicked.

    Isn't it ironic, dontcha think?

    Times Tough for Energy Overhaul - WSJ.com

    In a sign of one major internal difference, Mr. Chu has called for gradually ramping up gasoline taxes over 15 years to coax consumers into buying more-efficient cars and living in neighborhoods closer to work.

    "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe," Mr. Chu, who directs the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal in September.
