Californian State Legislator has just burned all Californians with a pernicious tax. Every single Democrat (and on Republican) voted to massively increase the fuel tax by 12-20% depending on type. And what’s worse, it doesn’t appear that their motives were not to protect the environment.
It turns out that there was a $500 Million kickback involved from business development sources: rail networks. They were being paid to stop people using cars and make them start using the train so the rail company could make money.
Californian politicians act so high and mighty to the rest f the nation, preaching about how progressive and forward looking they are, but in reality, they are just thieves, out to rob the taxpayer.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Californians are pushing back against the Democratic lawmakers who passed the largest gas tax in the state’s history last month.
Citizens have signed signatures for a recall effort against Democratic state Sen. Josh Newman for his vote in favor of for the Road Repair and Accountability Act, and another lawmaker is moving forward on an initiative to repeal the unpopular gas tax.
The law, passed April 6, imposes a 12 cents a gallon hike on citizens and raises the tax on diesel fuel by 20 cents a gallon. It also implements an additional charge to annual vehicle license fees ranging from $25 to $175 depending on the car’s value.
