Cars would be fitted with GPS navigation systems that track how far they drive. Then drivers would be billed accordingly -- about a penny a mile, depending on where and when you rack up the mileage.
Needless to say, this Orwellian idea came from Europe, and the Obama administration has been exploring it too.
So let's see what's going on here. The government greenies want you to pay extra to drive an electric car that's more fuel efficient, then they charge you for the miles you drive anyway?
What red-blooded, road-loving American driver wants a government GPS implanted in his car with some bureaucrat looking at it to see how many miles he's driving?
