Liberals don't understand that. They believe whenever a cost is inflicted on the big guy, he just digs deeper into his pockets and does with less. Once he or she can't pass on the costs any longer, they leave the state or country.<quoted text>I am curious about your discription of 'artificial vehicles', in what way do you mean that?
In my opinion, the end consumer of any product or service is the one that pays all of any company taxes. Taxes are a business expense that must be passed on. That may be an opinion of semantics but it seems a law of economics too.
In recent years, we were hit with all kinds of additional expenses because of environmental garbage. Our trucks now have to use Diesel Emission Fluid (or DEF for short) which squirts some sort of crap into the exhaust pipe to supposedly make it burn cleaner. New trucks cost about $7,000 more than they used to because of all the pollution crap on the darn thing. Then of course that means more crap to repair because 80% of the time when something goes wrong, it's a pollution gadget of some kind.
Since the law of lower sulfur in diesel fuel, it has exceeded the price of gasoline and remains so today.
So all these expenses of more repair costs, DEF, higher priced fuel, and higher priced trucks, of course my employer has to pass on these costs to our customers. Again, liberals don't understand that concept.
