Absolutely! Especially considering in the very near future we all will be paying a road/mile tax just like the truckers do based on the miles driven in a year. Check it out!

But Bicyles should too, due to the construction and maintenance of bike lanes and sidewalks

I think hybrid/electric cars are good for carbon reduction, but as much of our highway funding is gas taxes, we need to ensure all vehicles pay for roads. The trick will be equalizing it.

While using less gasoline is good, it also means less gas taxes collected for road maintenance and repairs. Everyone should pay their share for the roads everyone uses.

This is the worst thing I have ever heard. We drive cars that are better for the environment and we get taxed because of it......Ridiculous!!

The government and manufacturers create this fallacy that electric cars produce less waste, yet disposal and manufacturing of these batteries causes a larger environmental footprint then oil ever has.

So then, you're all for giving the liberal freaks who drive these electric cars a break on their taxes? You do know who drives these, "zero emissions" cars, right? It's liberals and Democrats!

No its not right but you are going to get it, Pluss with all electric cars you will soon be paying a mileage tax because of loss of revenue from gas tax.

They should not be penalized for trying to help the environment if anything the gas guzzlers should have to pay more.

My pickup gets about 16.5 mpg. I'm fine with that because it does what I need it to do. My wife's car gets 33 mpg. I think it is stupid to punish people for purchasing efficient means of travel.

There should be perks and encouragement to purchase efficient, non polluting vehicles. Higher fees for big rigs, studs ...vehicles that are harder on the roads.

Very experienced mentor left their jobs in the fire service and nursing. They already had natural immunity, which made the vaccine pointless.

Glad my son in law decided to get vaccinated. I dont want to be around unvaccinated "health care" workers. Neither do I want to be around unvaccinated police and fire who I pay to serve and "protect". Glad, too, that teachers and staff are required to be vaccinated.

No I don't, however, I don't believe anyone should need a mandate to do the right thing. Through the years Americans have come together when needed to bring the country through events like this. Those that continue to cause deaths, shorthanded medical services and tumbling stock market for what?

I do not know anyone personally affected, but in a way we are all affected! I am vaccinated and I think it is the best way to get the horrible Democrats socialist control freaks off our backs, but it is NOT the American way to be forced into something! We have got to get rid of the Biden and Brown!

I voted(?) this way because ... I don't know anyone affected by the mandate. But I don't understand people's resistance to this. Consider mandates we all accept without complaint: stop signs, seat belts, motorcycle helmets. Come on, people. Get the shot, Keep yourself and the rest of us healthy.

I know several people that have had strokes and other serious side effects from this vaccine, people get the jab before researching it
