This is such a stupid proposal, the device can be easily tampered with. To do this they would have to tag the individual with the device in the car, but maybe that's what they really want?

Re: Obama floats plan to tax cars -- by the mile
The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive.

The plan is a part of the administration's "Transportation Opportunities Act," an undated draft of which was obtained this week by Transportation Weekly.

March Congressional Budget Office report that supported the idea of taxing drivers based on miles driven.

Among other things, CBO suggested that a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax could be tracked by installing electronic equipment on each car to determine how many miles were driven; payment could take place electronically at filling stations.

High gas prices plus this tax looks to me like they
are trying to keep citizens close to home so we can
be rounded up easily and shipped off to Fema camps???

I have a 40 mile commute to work as it is. I already pay nearly 20% of my net just to get to work. If I get taxed, fuck it, Imma revolt.

They don't want to drive. They want cars to become obsolet so it be harder for you to travel around with out getting governments permission to do so.

We already have that, its called gas tax. It varies by state,
<snip>
New York and California are the highest, at more than 65 cents per gallon. Connecticut and Illinois taxes are a bit less, but still more than 60 cents per gallon. On the low end are Wyoming and New Jersey, both at less than 35 cents per gallon.

Yeah, I suppose $5/gallon ain't high enough yet for the global warming carbon fearmongers trying to destroy America !

This is already done in many states with the gasoline tax at the pump.

Agenda 21 full speed ahead.
