Biden Administration Considering Breaking A Major Campaign Promiseby staff
A few days in office and the new administration already is considering breaking a campaign promise not to raise taxes on people making less than 400K a year.
Supporting a federal gasoline tax increase is a clear violation of Biden's promise not to raise taxes on the middle class and the poor. This increase would be disproportionally felt by America's poorest population and those in rural communities.
The new administration is also considering a new "vehicle miles traveled" (VMT) tax that would charge based on miles driven per year. California is already looking into implementing just such a tax on its highway travelers.
