San Diego Wants to Tax Citizens for Each Mile Driven

San Diego Wants to Tax Citizens for Each Mile Driven

(ReliableNews.org) – Another day, another hit to the wallets of hard-working taxpayers in California, specifically, in San Diego this time. As the United States faces the worst inflation rates in decades, California just keeps tightening the financial noose on its citizens. Currently, San Diego is considering a mileage tax on its residents. This move comes on top of SB 339, a state-wide pilot program developing road usage taxes.

According to existing data under SB 339 and 2019 Census information, the $.04 “road usage tax” could cost the average San Diego driver an extra $33 a month, in turn generating nearly $38 million each month for San Diego. The city’s goal is to encourage residents to use free public transportation. The city plans to cover the costs of public transport with the revenues generated by the new tax. It’s unclear how San Diego will cover the cost if drivers actually stop driving.

Members of the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) will vote on the tax on December 10th. While the Left unknowingly celebrates under the crushing boot of tyranny they think leads to a more fair and easier life, those on the Right and anyone who can think for themselves are beginning to wonder where it ends. If the goal is to have the entire state turned into a Tent City, then San Diego is making monumental strides of progress.
