Governor Kulongoski’s mileage tax makes national news

Governor Kulongoski has put in his budget the wild-eyed idea of taxing cars by mileage via satellite. Yesterday the tax even made national news on the Drudge Report and the Kansas Witchita Eagle Newspaper. Oregon has already spent millions testing the idea and will undoubtedly spends millions more implementing it, fixing it, installing it into millions of cars, enforcing it, and eventually scrapping it when it does not work out as planned. They say it does not invade privacy, but travelers must lose some privacy when you have stations recording where you are.
