I thought taxes on gas and toll roads were for that.

Apparently, they're not enough. Actually, Obama's transportation secretary came up with this brilliant idea.

Wrong. This was proposed in 2006. Our Governor supported it, check the facts

I have no doubt that you are right. However, I read about two months ago that the transportation secretary appointed by Obama wants to install devices in vehicles that report how many miles are driven and then tax people on the number of miles driven.
As someone that has to drive 100 miles round trip every day, I obviously don't support this.
It does not surprise me that Rick Perry wanted to do the same thing. I will be voting for whomever runs against Perry in the next election.

I do not use or wear the roads, but you want me to pay for fixing them when you do? WELFARE! pay your fair share you cheap skate. You use it you pay for it. So if you have 16 kids you should have to pay more for schools and if you get arrested 16 times a year you should have to pay more taxes for the police.
