    External pollution costs? Consumers should be paying for that, not oil companies. Consumers are the ones who burn the oil, afterall. Furthermore, the "program subsidies" is transportation which we all use. It is not a specific oil company subsidy. And saying that they are subsidized by a US military presence is very misleading. And these tax breaks, again, are they only for oil companies? It does not state that. It implies it, but never states it, leading me to believe that these people are trying to spin.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    From your own article:

    “This is not an administration proposal," White House spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said. "This is not a bill supported by the administration. This was an early working draft proposal that was never formally circulated within the administration, does not taken into account the advice of the president’s senior advisers, economic team or Cabinet officials, and does not represent the views of the president.”

    Re: Oil rises above $90 amid US crude supply drop

    The plan is a part of the administration's Transportation Opportunities Act, an undated draft of which was obtained this week by Transportation Weekly.

    Obama's proposal seems to follow up on that idea in section 2218 of the draft bill. That section would create, within the Federal Highway Administration, a Surface Transportation Revenue Alternatives Office. It would be tasked with creating a "study framework that defines the functionality of a mileage-based user fee system and other systems."

    The administration seems to be aware of the need to prepare the public for what would likely be a controversial change to the way highway funds are collected. For example, the office is called on to serve a public-relations function, as the draft says it should "increase public awareness regarding the need for an alternative funding source for surface transportation programs and provide information on possible approaches."

    The draft bill says the "study framework" for the project and a public awareness communications plan should be established within two years of creating the office, and that field tests should begin within four years.

    The office would be required to consider four factors in field trials: the capability of states to enforce payment, the reliability of technology, administrative costs and "user acceptance." The draft does not specify where field trials should begin.

    The new office would be funded a total of $300 million through fiscal 2017 for the project.

    You just counting on people reading your headline without reading what your article says here:

    “This is not an administration proposal," White House spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said. "This is not a bill supported by the administration.

    Great idea, With no profit to be concerned with, just doing what you like to do, not being forced to make more and more money, you wouldn't have ulcers, early heart attacks, or guilt feelings, and you'd have more time to spend with your families.
