Oregon wants to impose a separate tax on hybrids to make up for lost gasoline revenues. Eschewing anything so simple as raising the gasoline tax itself, which would tax drivers for the amount they drive and encourage conservation, Oregon greens would install GPS tracking devices on Priuses and charge them a special rate. What liberal wouldn’t love this? It’s intrusive, ineffective, expensive and grows the bureaucracy while hitting those who can afford to pay more, rather than the illegal cabbage pickers in their 1960 Impalas. Go, Oregon!
