  •  Gas pain is inevitable (9+ / 0-)

    This way, not only can it be mitigated by transfers, but as part of a plan, at least you provide a real alternative and you raise the funds for it.

    As I wrote in an other comment, if you do not believe that gas price increases are inevitable, you won't see the point of the plan.

    And again, the gas tax is only a small part of the plan. It's just the most contentious (as demonstrated here on dKos) and thus the part that will require most explaining.

    I am saying (but from all the comments it would appear that I am completely deluded) that this requirement can be transformed into a great opportunity to change policies AND minds and restore some principles of government, including the need to pay (via taxes) for what you spend.
