We don't need to be taxed more

May 15, 2013 

Regarding "Should the feds tax the miles we drive?" (May 5 pro-con): I have two comments.

One is, when do we take the existing system and make it better and quit talking about taxing more?

The other is regarding the chart of what we pay at the pump now. The bill for my business shows that the total taxes add up to 71 cents per gallon. How much more do you need?
