    Obama to Propose a $10-a-Barrel Fee on Oil
    By CORAL DAVENPORT FEB. 4, 2016

    WASHINGTON — President Obama’s budget request to Congress will include a new fee on oil companies, requiring them to pay $10 to the federal government for every barrel of oil they produce, the White House said on Thursday.

    The money, which could bring in up to $32 billion in new federal revenue annually, would be spent on highway infrastructure and research for cleaner vehicles.

    The proposal to further increase costs for fossil fuel production is part of a broader effort by Mr. Obama to fight climate change. The goal is to make it more expensive to produce and consume energy sources that emit planet-warming greenhouse gases while stoking the market for clean, renewable sources of energy such as wind and solar.

    “This new approach to investment and funding is one that places a priority on reducing greenhouse gases, while working to develop a more integrated, sophisticated and sustainable transportation sector,” said a White House fact sheet on the new proposal.

    Hes a stupid faggot who is showing his true colors now that he is not running for re-election. A communist muslim that doesn't care if hard working citizens pick up the bill for his retarded initiatives (obamacare = premium increases; tax on oil = we pay more at the pump).

    More ways for the government to raise money and then spend it like fuck nuggets.

    Anyone not for a minimal federal government that only handles interstate commerce, foreign affairs, and ensuring state adherence to the constitution is a moron. Nothing the government touches becomes more efficient, ever. Keep government at the state and local level where citizens have the power to enact real change, and if they don't like their state government they can pack up and move to another that matches their ideals more closely.

    This big government bullshit is just an excuse to rob tax payers of their money and then spend 50k on a toilet seat where 49,900 went into some assholes corrupt pocket.

    Roads do need to be paid for, we all use them.
    But not like that.
    Oil turns into so many things.

    Heavier vehicles wear roads more than lighter vehicles.
    So paying by weight makes more sense.

    If we don't pay to repair bad roads, we will pay 10X more in car repairs.
    Keep that in mind next time you drive down a bad road.
