U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis recently offered her opinion on the Fox Business News Channel about the Congressional Budget Office's proposal to tax drivers based on the amount of miles they drive. Lummis says that the proposal is terrible.
Lummis stated that this is a good example of Washington not understanding the people that they are elected to serve.
Lummis said that part of this is a spending problem, saying that when we shift highway dollars to highway beautification and mass transit, we are taking away from maintenance of our highways. She said that we need to take a look at things like toll roads and the gas taxes that we pay.
