    The tax rebate was on the purchase of an electric car. The 100 dollar fee is a tax on driving that car on public roads. Those are two different things.

    until you show us a cite confirming the state told electric car buyers they would no longer incur their share of the costs of on-going road maintenance, i call bull **** that is 'what the state led people to believe'

    the dishonesty is yours, alleging the state to have expressed what it did not

    i think that people calling for "dishonesty" and "socialism" on this specific case are really scrapping the bottom of the barrel. They still save 100 bucks/year on gas taxes. That won't stand for long since these drivers do still use the roads and contribute to the wear and tear and gas taxes are apparently where the predominate road taxes come in.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

The origional article makes it clear that it's how individuals that don't pay gas tax are to pay their fair share of road maintaince.

    Unless you think as more and more individuals get electric cars they should just raise gas taxes on those that still use fuel. You'd be bitching about that to. Government is damned if they do, damned if they dont.
    I would say it is the tax payer that is damned if they do damned if they don't.

    You are the one stating elec car buyers were told they would get a 1000k tax break up front AND were told at the same time they would pay an extra tax of 100 bucks a year. Prove it.

    'prove it' is right
    prove i said this:

    and if you can't, a retraction is in order
    at least it would be from an honest poster

    No such obligation exists to begin with.

    damned if they do and half damned if they don't...

    Using breitbart as a fair, unbiased source is sad. Fact is a tax break on purchase isn't the same as over the road tax. Everyone who uses the road needs to pay for the road. Or do you think some are privileged and don't have to help pay for the road?

    Interesting you think we are damned for having to pay for road maintenance. Are we also damned for paying to maintain a national defense?

    So...everyone that utilizes public transportation should also be hit with this tax, right?

    Tax em...by all means. First they paid twice as much for the electric car (and taxes on said purchase), then they paid for the utilities to charge said car (and taxes), so of course an additional tax should be in order.
