If the "wealthy," or commercial interests use an inordinate share for, say road maintenance, then we do need to find a way to levy taxes that shift the cost to the user creating that cost.
That's already in operation for the roads. Seeing as how a lot of our goods are moved by truck, the road use taxes/permits/fees/licenses have been shifted to trucking companies, but, ultimately the end user pays - that's us.
Now flying, a scheme by which we're all taxed per mile driven, as though we're not paying enough through gas taxes, licensing of driver and vehicle, and auto-insurance add-ons.
When's the last time y'all looked at your phone bill? We still have a landline and half of the $29 per month, local, is fees, taxes and surcharges, just to get a dial-tone in the house. The long-distance company's bill varies by calls made but the same fees, taxes and surcharges apply but as a percentage of the total of calls. We get a $25 credit there and most months, a few calls and the resulting f/t/s eat up the entire credit.
We pay a sales tax on propane, and now, a sales tax on the delivery charge as well.
We pay property taxes on home and vehicles and any licensed trailers -- and if you're using one, it needs to be licensed. If we make improvements to the house, what is determined as "significant improvement" is remodeling your bathroom/kitchen and not just replacing a floor, the county wants to know how much of it was "sweat equity" because it wants property taxes on your labor.
There isn't a blessed thing any of us do that a fee, tax, or permit from the government isn't required and I'm bloody tired of it.
We desperately need to rebuild our front porch and the prospect of dealing with the local and state governments' demands and permitting fees is going to drive me to *setting my hair on fire and putting it out with a shovel. (*H/T Luthien)
