Here’s one of those “let’s float an insane tax proposal and see if anybody gets upset” articles…

If they decide to tax by the mile as opposed to the gas tax, then what incentive would we have to leave our Wii’s and actually drive to work? And will E-Z Pass be complicit in this scheme?

In my opinion, IRS mileage books are a huge invasion of privacy…this would be even worse. And don’t think for a second that they would do anything about tolls, gas taxes, sales taxes on car maintenance items.
