Infra plan will avoid hiking gasoline tax, vehicle miles fee: Buttigieg

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said on Monday the White House will not propose hiking gasoline taxes or a new vehicle miles traveled (VMT) fee to pay for a proposal to boost infra spending. Buttigieg had previously spoken about the idea of a VMT but acknowledged it faces challenges. Separately, Congress has not boosted the 18.4-cents-per-gallon federal gasoline tax since 1993.

So, they are saying they have a plan to get the revenue, but they do it with a teaser. Why not just say it up front? They are also claiming it won't hurt anyone making less than $400,000 per year. If they push a tax to business, it will hurt those of us making less in the long run because business will pass their expenses down the line with price increases or will go where it's cheaper to manufacture. They may even do both, which means a. Less jobs and b. More $$ out of pocket.

“The president has a plan to fix the infrastructure of our country ... and he has a plan to pay for it,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday.”.... Great Jan, when are you going to tell us what that plan is? When reporters can report on the southern boarder again? When transparency returns to the White House again? When we have a President that doesn’t lose his place mid sentence? So, not this year...but it’s going to be great!
