Democrats In The Peoples Paradise Of Washington State Go For The Gold

National level Democrats just wish they had big enough balls were bold enough to tax freakin’ bicycles:

House Democrats rolled out a nearly$10 billion transportation package Wednesday that would boost taxes on gasoline, increase car tabs and even charge a bicycle fee to raise money.

The proposal would increase the state gas tax by 10 cents over five years, eventually reaching a total of 47.5 cents per gallon. Currently, Washington state has the nation’s ninth-highest gas tax.

In addition, it would create a car tab equal to 0.7 percent of a vehicle’s value. A state tax on hazardous chemicals would increase by 0.3 percent, to 1 percent.

There’s even a $25 sales fee on bicycles worth $500 or more that raises a total $1 million over 10 years, included for largely symbolic reasons.

But it’s OK, it is a tax on rich bicycle owners.

Taxes, taxes and more taxes. That’s all they know. I’m glad my big hairy ass lives in the wilderness.
