Activist Post


Taxing the air we breathe may be coming to Washington state.  Yes, the insane taxing of every behavior is rising to a whole new level with the proposed "bike tax" in Washington.

According to lawmakers who proposed the bike tax, it would help raise $1 million over the next decade to be used for road maintenance. The new $25 tax will be applied on every bike sold for over $500 in the state.


One Washington lawmaker is making twisted argument in support of the new fee. Rep. Ed Orcutt wrote in an email to a bike shop that the CO2 that bicyclists exhale while riding is just one of the reasons he supports the bike tax.

"Since CO2 is deemed a greenhouse gas and a pollutant, bicyclists are actually polluting when they ride," Orcutt wrote. Therefore, they should pay taxes to help the environment as well as the roads.

Here is his full email:

Yes there are more CO2 emissions from bicycle riding than from cars full of people and that is why bicycles must be taxed more than cars for CO2 emissions even worse if you walk. It also shows how stupid CO2 taxes are. Carbon dioxide tax is a tax on air, or actually life itself, that makes one wonder about how anyone can even come up with such an idea?

I just hope that the present Chinese leadership would not be that naive as to follow suit by levying a tax on farmers and those poor migrant construction workers in the cities for breathing out carbon dioxide.
