    If we are going to start pretending the CBO is the same thing as the Democratic party please let me know so I can cite it as hypocrisy whenever you want to use their numbers in the future.

    The question is who gives the CBO their numbers.

    They produce them themselves through research, how is that even a question? Its something very easily researched and answered by say google or the CBO website. But it does bring up another question, why are you so certain about the motivations of an organization which you don't even know the simpliest and most basic thing about?

    In that case I wish they would have been asked to research HC, Instead of being forced to use the numbers they were given.

    Yep - this - and this also gets me when I mow my lawn, too - and trim the hedges.

    On top of that - they already log my mileage - everytime I renew I have to report it. . . I thought they already taxed me on it, really.

    A gas tax would be far simpler, more practical, more fair, and less invasive than a mileage tax.

    I can't. This is important.

    I disagree. Numbers are presentined by the party asking for the CBO view. Example CBO came up with things on Obamacare by numbers presented by the democrats and the President.

    Your link did not show where the CBO got those numbers

    Ya. The current gas tax isn't really sufficient to pay for all the externalities associated with driving though, but it would be far easier to simply raise it than to create an entirely new type of tax. Especially one as cumbersome and impractical as a mileage tax.

    The problem is Obama is pushing more fuel efficient cars which means less gas used.
