Stupid Taxeaters

The Govanator's newly appointed head of the Calif DMV wants to replace the state gasoline excise tax with a mileage tax that would be monitored by mandatory tracking devices. Now the 'big brother' aspects of this are disturbing but to me what is more so is the reasoning behind the whole scheme in the first place.

It appears there is an increase in the number of high mileage and hybrid cars being sold. This results in lower gasoline sales. The brilliant taxeater says she is worried about a decrease in tax revenue. Never mind the benefits of the drop, all she cares about is less money for her tax eating ilk.

I've got a better idea. How about a 10% overall paycut across the entire state payroll and a 20% reduction in top management positions. That should help make up the difference.
