The Washington Post again editorialized today in favor of taxing us by the mile driven instead of by the gallon of gas purchased.
Appearing near the Post editorial is a letter from Gerry Rosenthal of Great Falls, Virgina:
Perhaps there should be a tax on every editorial you write. Then you would feel the pain of being charged just for doing your job. I drive to visit my clients regularly, to generate income. The last thing I need is to be penalized for getting out there to support my family.
Your focus is misguided. The auto manufacturers’ lack of ingenuity should be the target, not me.
A further thought. Many people get their copies of the Washington Post by home delivery, which inevitably involves somene driving a car. Leave it to the liberal media to advocate a tax that would hurt its own employees and business. No wonder newspapers are dying.
