    Re: Gasoline Taxes Per Gallon Nearly 7 Times Exxon Mobiles

    Catawba;1059478771]Thanks for your opinion. As has been documented, we have the lowest gasoline tax in the industrialized world.

    So what? Is this a race to see who has the highest taxes?

    Regarding your "big country" claim:

    "Average one-way commute time is 26 minutes (over an average distance of 16 miles)"

    Poll: Traffic in the United States - ABC News
    Again, so what, we aren't talking totally about community but also the recreation industry and the American tradition of taking vacations which drive the tourist industry. That doesn't seem to matter to you as you continue to show just how misinformed you truly are.

    I am the one providing the facts to refute your unsubstantiated claims, that's what's so!

    What facts? 67 BILLION DOLLARS was collected last year at the Federal Level in Excise taxes with most of that coming from the .18 Federal Excise Taxes on gasoline. State taxes on gasoline are much higher than the Federal Taxes and in some states there is sales tax on top of the state excise taxes as wll as local and community taxes on gasoline. Your so called facts mean absolutely nothing. How much actual money is collected by those foreign governments with high taxes on gasoline? High rates do not mean high revenue collected as high rates mean fewer people on the road. Keep showing your economic ignorance.

    LOL! So your response to the fact that we have the lowest tax rates on gasoline in the industrialized world is that we are more wasteful and thus pay more total tax (which you also have not substantiated)?

    Not to mention this is ANOTHER example of a regressive tax already in the system.
    A system about which we hear daily, "the bottom 40% pay no taxes".
    Like the Jewel 'walmarters running out of money' string..
    this is another that Backfires on the OP.

Congress has a spending problem and they use spending to buy votes. Until that stops sending them more money doesn't do anything but increase the size and scope of the govt. Political passion for keeping their jobs and their power prevents leaders from doing their job which is to pay down the debt and have effective management of the economy. In other words, create incentive for the private sector and then get out of the way?
    I agree with get all regulations out the way, do not tax, and take the cap off lawsuits.

    I think everbody should pay equal taxes, the same amount, based on citizenship, not income. Why income? How about shoe size? Or the number of teeth you have? Why should I pay more taxes than the homeless man selling cans. We should all pay the same amount.

    Do low rates mean low collections thus revenue? Is 68 billion dollars low in your world and that is just the federal excise taxes? Please tell me this is an act?
