    You don't understand how that will affect the transportation industry and the added cost to transportation will be passed on to the consumer.

    You think I don't understand? Maybe it is you who doesn't understand. I have been paying income and use taxes since 1963. Taxes are inevitable, services have to be provided, and the tooth fairly ran out of money decades ago. WE have to pay, because WE use the services....

    Why don't you explain it to us all.?...?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    So consumers that are already cash strapped be damned. Typical liberal thinking

    What about substitution effects (price elasticities), externalities, and infant industry developement? Given the indepthness of your response, why did you even bother?
