Present day Republicans are spoiled children, and will never think of the future; or anything but less and smaller taxes for their rich puppetmasters.

Not only does Europe have high gas prices ($7-$8 per liter) but if you want to drive your personal vehicle in London you must pay an $8 dollar per day CONGESTION TAX!

With Obama's Secretary of Energy (Chu) and Secretary of Transportation (LaHood) both frothing at the mouth to get America's gas prices equal to that of Britian, there can be NO DOUBT, that a CONGESTION TAX and Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) Tax WILL be assessed on those who DARE TO DRIVE their own PERSONAL VEHICLES.

If you are poor or middle class-YOU will be PAYING MORE! Those in elected office get their travel paid for by the public, so they don't give a damn and the wealthy will have no problem paying for this.

IT'S THE MIDDLE CLASS WHO WILL SUFFER.

It's just like the Kings levying taxes on the peons, serfs.

Beware Middle Class, BEWARE!
