Biden’s ☭ Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg Plans to Tax Drivers for Each Mile They Drive

America stood by while the Democrat criminal syndicate hijacked our election and allowed the Dem-fascists to target and persecute anyone who spoke out again the coup.

It will only get worse until we #RiseUp.

After a year of punitive Democrat COVID restrictions which decimated American jobs and businesses, the Democrats followed up on their coup with unsustainable, punishing tax increases. And the media cheered.

More ruinous policies from the Biden Administration. If enacted, this tax would hurt the millions of Americans who live in rural areas. The people who must travel greater distances for work.  And what about the families who work in hotels, restaurants, diners, and parks, who would lose their jobs since far fewer people would go on road trips? What a miserable administration this is. The most extreme we have ever seen. The American people must come out in droves during the 2022 mid-terms and vote the Democrat Party out of power.

‘What Awful Instincts’: Buttigieg Torched On Social Media For Being Open To Taxing Motorists Per Mile

By Daily Wire, March 27, 2021

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was ridiculed on social media on Friday for expressing openness to a policy that would pay for President Joe Biden’s massive infrastructure budget by taxing motorists for each mile they drive.

“So, I think that shows a lot promise,” Buttigieg said regarding a mileage-based tax during an interview with CNBC. “If we believe in that so-called ‘user-pays principle,’ the idea that part of how we pay for roads is you pay based on how much you drive. The gas tax used to be the obvious way to do that; it’s not anymore.”

“So, a so-called ‘vehicle-miles-traveled tax’ or ‘mileage tax,’ whatever you want to call it, could be a way to do it,” Buttigieg added.

WATCH:

Many pundits took to social media to blast Buttigieg for floating such an idea, which many claimed would be a further burden on the poor.

“Truly brilliant way to completely screw over lower income and middle class Americans! And every single person living in a rural area who has to drive far to get places! Just brilliant Pete, truly,” wrote “The View” cohost Meghan McCain.

“Pete Buttigieg is what happens when you put white, upper class Millennial residents of college towns in charge,” tweeted The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti. “I bet he writes strongly worded posts on Nextdoor when someone parks their Prius in his bike lane[.]”

“Here comes a new tax that will hit the poor and middle class the hardest. Joe Biden’s Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg says the Biden administration is considering taxing drivers for every mile they drive to fund their big spending,” wrote congressional candidate Robby Starbuck.

Buttigieg recently testified on Capitol Hill that the country’s infrastructure needs top $1 trillion. The Biden administration is preparing a $3-4 trillion spending package that includes infrastructure funding and other priorities.

As The Daily Wire reported:

In his testimony to the committee on Thursday, Secretary Buttigieg said that there is opportunity at this current moment in time to provide funding for infrastructure needs. In written remarks, Buttigieg said, “I believe we have – at this moment – the best chance in any of our lifetimes to make a generational investment in infrastructure that will help us meet our country’s most pressing challenges today and create a stronger future for decades to come.”
