Among the many nasty surprises buried in the 2700-page “barebones” compromise “infrastructure” bill is a provision to establish a pilot program to examine the feasibility of a national, per-mile “user fee” on all motorists – i.e., a tax on every mile you drive (since Biden hasn’t made driving expensive enough already.)

https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/08/05/infrastructure-bill-has-provision-that-could-lead-to-big-fees-on-americans-and-blow-up-bidens-promise-on-taxes-n421952

Democrats are trying to brush off questions about this by claiming it’s not a tax hike, it’s just to study the possibility of a mileage tax in the future that might not ever be imposed. If you think that Democrats will go to that much trouble to workshop a big new tax and then not impose it, I have some oceanfront property in Kansas I’d like to sell you.

Here’s more waste stuffed into that bill…

https://redstate.com/heartlandinstitute/2021/08/06/bidens-infrastructure-bill-includes-massive-slush-funds-for-green-energy-boondoggles-n421817

It also includes a piddling $1 billion for a commission headed by Sen. Joe Manchin’s wife…

And blogger Lawrence Person also lists some not-very-infrastructurey items hidden in that bill, from state-mandated carbon reduction programs to racial quotas on broadband.

https://www.battleswarmblog.com/?p=48841

Person also includes this quote, which every Republican who supports this bill should be required to respond to, from two researchers at the Texas Public Policy Foundation: “It has just $110 billion, or less than 10% (of its spending), for what’s historically been considered infrastructure – roads and bridges. The other 90% is to fund mass transit waste, green energy nonsense and more items that the states or the private sector could do.”

I often wonder, if leftists are really that concerned about carbon emissions, why don’t they stop burning massive piles of our tax money?

    Why are we the taxpayers responsible for building EV charging stations? Isn’t that the responsibility of the power company that is going to profit from the charge? Or is electricity free if you have an EV and we will pay for that too? Also, when Biden reaches his goal of 50% EV where is the road tax coming from? They use our roads for free now.

    Thanks and I read your news every day. The only one that I trust.

    Let's not forget to bash the RINOS for backing this so call infrastructure bill. I see where my Senator Bill Cassidy a true Rino who was always was a liberal voting for this trash of a bill. I left the Republican party because of him and the rest of the Rinos. I believe it will take a long time to rid our self of Rinos. We have a lot of them in Louisiana holding office SAD.

    I am pretty sure all those green energy people really don't care about the consequences of passing an energy bills. A good example of the consequences is the cost of gasoline, electricity and other associated cost for power. All those nice lawns and green trees could disappear. All those green veggies in the stores and all those nice fruits poof gone. Farmers can no longer afford to grow the crops due to lack of power and cost of fuel. The cost of energy in winter will be more than middle and low income people can afford. There are hundreds of other examples of how these new laws will effect the people. The democrats just don't care or are just stupid. I think I know which they are. BOTH. Thanks for your good news and reports. I read them daily. Roy Turner
