He’s getting what he deserves…
Pete Buttigieg recently announced a plan that would tax motorists for every mile they drive in order to pay for Biden’s infrastructure budget.
He stated during an interview, “If we believe in that so-called ‘user-pays principle,’ the idea that part of how we pay for roads is you pay based on how much you drive. The gas tax used to be the obvious way to do that; it’s not anymore. So, a so-called ‘vehicle-miles-traveled tax’ or ‘mileage tax,’ whatever you want to call it, could be a way to do it.”

Buttigieg was harshly criticized for his ridiculous idea.
Truly brilliant way to completely screw over lower income and middle class Americans!
And every single person living in a rural area who has to drive far to get places! Just brilliant Pete, truly. https://t.co/z4IgJ8Nly5
