Orgeon to start taxing bicycles!

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jul/17/first-bicycle-tax-nation-deflates-oregon-riders/

In Oregon, a state known for its avid bicycling culture, the state Legislature's approval of the first bike tax in the nation has fallen flat with riders.

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown is expected to sign the sweeping $5.3 billion transportation package, which includes a $15 excise tax on the sale of bicycles costing more than $200 with a wheel diameter of at least 26 inches.

Even though the funding has been earmarked for improvements that will benefit cyclists, the tax has managed to irk both anti-tax Republicans and environmentally conscious bikers.

BikePortland publisher Jonathan Maus called it "an unprecedented step in the wrong direction."

"We are taxing the healthiest, most inexpensive, most environmentally friendly, most efficient and most economically sustainable form of transportation ever devised by the human species," Mr. Maus said.

Oregon Republican Party Chairman Bill Currier blasted what he described as Ms. Brown's "endless obsession with finding new and innovative ways to take money out of the pockets of Oregon taxpayers."

"She just continues to view the people of her state as nothing more than a piggy bank to fund her efforts to impose job-killing policies," said Mr. Currier in a statement. "Now add anti-healthy, environmentally-unfriendly policies to that list."

The bike tax is aimed at raising $1.2 million per year in order to improve and expand paths and trails for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Supporters point out that Oregon has no sales tax, which means buyers won't be dinged twice for their new wheels.

Oregon relies instead on its income tax, among the highest in the nation at 9.9 percent for top marginalized individual filers, according to the Tax Foundation.

Two-wheelers are a big deal in Oregon: Portland was ranked the third-most bike-friendly city in 2016 by Bicycling magazine, citing the 7.2 percent of residents who commute by bicycle.

Bikers cheered last year when Portland passed a four-year, 10-cent-per-gallon tax on gasoline aimed at improving roads, but the measure also fueled complaints that bicycle riders have failed to pay their share for such projects.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer, Oregon Democrat, defended the state bike tax, calling it a "modest fee" that raises the profile of the bicycling community in the transportation debate.

"One of the arguments we hear repeatedly is that cyclists don't have any skin in the game ... so there's been blowback," Mr. Blumenauer told BikePortland.

The Street Trust, a Portland pro-bike group, praised the overall transportation package while saying that the bike tax "sends the wrong message to those trying to help."

"Let's be frank: This bike tax is very disappointing," said The Street Trust's Romain Bonilla. "It's also well worth the investments in bike safety and accessibility. There are more opportunities ahead for us to stand up for our shared priorities and mitigate the negative impact of the bike tax."

The only good tax is the land-value tax.

Income tax discourages productive work. Sales tax discourages productive commerce.

No one created land. Taxing it does not discourage "land production" because there isn't any.

Land is impossible to hide, so the tax is impossible to evade. Renters will pay the tax via their rent, when their landlord pays the tax.

It's fair as well. Those who live on or otherwise use the most valuable land will pay the most tax.

What exactly is your problem with this? From your referenced article...

zzyzzx says

the funding has been earmarked for improvements that will benefit cyclists

So the options are
1. Don't make improvements that benefit cyclists.
2. Make improvements that benefit cyclists and socialize the costs over the entire population including the vast majority of people who don't cycle.
3. Make improvements that benefit cyclists and socialize the costs over only cyclists. I.e., tax the people receiving the benefits rather than people who aren't.

I would think that you'd prefer (3) over (2). And (1) is just saying fuck infrastructure. Let's all live in a slum.

Sounds like taxing cyclists for infrastructure benefiting specifically cyclists is far more fair and fiscally responsible. Would you prefer the government use general tax dollars instead?

You mean public resource value tax. Such taxes should include fishing the ocean and lakes, using the extremely scarce geostationary orbits, taking up the EM spectrum, etc.

If a bicycle tax is levied to pay for bicycle lanes, that is effectively a tax on the land use to pay for both the building of the lanes and the use of the land.

Personally, I'd rather the people using the resources and infrastructure pay for them than everyone paying for them, especially when the vast majority don't use the resources. It promotes more efficient allocation of resources.

Well, then it's not earmarked for improvements for cyclists. Since you cannot practically tax pedestrians, this would be a solid case to use general tax funds rather than a bike tax. Also, the law seems to be targeting an arbitrary subset of cyclists.

zzyzzx says

a $15 excise tax on the sale of bicycles costing more than $200 with a wheel diameter of at least 26 inches

Because of those two things, I would oppose this tax. The infrastructure improvements should be made using general funds, not a tax on a narrow arbitrary subset of the persons benefiting from the improvements.

FYI, Oregon has no sales taxes. CA is a shame these days, liberals overdone themselves on taxes and bonds, sales tax, income tax, add value tax, punitive taxes all over the place, business taxes, property taxes, and it's never enough.

Take notice liberals, you are already paying all of those taxes in one way or another, you probably spend 4-6 month out of the year to pay taxes. Slavery indeed!

Taxes are inherently socialistic. Taxes are socializing the cost of public infrastructure and government services like the military and the police. You simply cannot have any society without them. If you want to be free of taxes, move to Slab City. It's anarchy at it's finest.

FortWayne says

Liberals love taxes, they constantly add taxes to everything "to help the little guy".

I'm a liberal, and I don't love taxes. None of my liberal friends do, either. You clearly have not spent any times with liberals.

However, unlike you, I realize that taxes are a necessary evil for society to work. No society can work unless most people contribute something to that society. Ideally all would, but a society can tolerate a few disabled persons or a few parasites. But no society can function without contributions by the population to maintaining that society. Either you contribute your time through unpaid labor, or you contribute your time through taxes on paid labor. The later is far more efficient in a developed economy.

Furthermore, as a liberal, under my leadership you would be taxed far less. How can I do this? Easily. Cut wasteful military spending. Get those defense contractor welfare queens off the government teat.

The federal government takes in $1.9836 trillion in federal income tax. It spends $834.2 million on defense, of which 90% is pure waste. By cutting defense alone, I could reduce the total federal income tax to $1149.4 million. Distributing this decrease by bracket, I would reduce everyone's tax burden by 42%

Fuck, a 42% cut in your federal income tax immediately simply by reigning in wasteful military spending that does nothing to keep us safer. And if the savings were distributed equally, unless you are in the top 10%, $127,695/yr or more income, your federal income taxes would go to zero.

Put a liberal like me in office and on day one I'll make the first $127,695 of your income tax free. That's better than any conservative would ever do.

The reason your taxes are so high is that they are wasted on defense contractors and needless empire building. And you can blame the right for this. It's not the family on food stamps that is costing you 25% to 35% of your income. It's the war profiteers. This is the truth that FortWayne will never be honest enough to admit.

You clearly don't even know what the term liberal is. Liberalism isn't socialism. It's not even an economic policy.

Liberalism is the political philosophy that
1. All people are equal under law. We are a nation of rights, not privileges, and everyone has the same right.
2. People should be allowed to do what they want as long as they aren't infringing upon the rights of others. There should be no victimless crimes.
3. Government should be transparent and accountable for its actions.

None of these things have to do with spending. A liberal could be a stimulus spending Keynesian or a penny pinching Austrian or anything else. Liberalism has nothing to do with economic policy.

Furthermore, the vast majority of democrats are not liberals.

You are obsessed with labeling everyone, but have no idea what those labels mean.

Finally, warfare spending is by far the greatest discretionary expense. Eliminate the wasteful 90% of warfare spending and we can all have massive tax cuts and complete funding for anti-poverty programs, which by the way are a net saving of tax dollars by greatly reducing crime and the need for police and prisons.

FortWayne says

At the end it's the next generation that is born into huge debt to start with.

Your hero Reagan was the one who created the era of massive deficit spending and ballooned the national debt. Dick Cheney said, "Reagan proved deficits don’t matter". That's your team. Team Reaganomics.

Don't go blaming us liberals for the massive deficit spending that republicans do. At least democrats tax and spend instead of spending and going into debt, which is far worse. Paying for shit on credit makes it far more expensive. Republicans are always charging the credit card and making us pay interest in the form of actual interest and currency debasement, both of which impoverish our country.

Again, unless you are willing to slash the military budget by at least 90%, you are the cause of our massive national debt.

FortWayne says

You liberals are ruining this nation.

Yeah, that whole equality under law and the rights of individuals are ruining this country. We should go back to slavery, the good old days, like FortWayne wants. Liberty is bad. That's why China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, and Nazi Germany are the best states in history.

Don't you love conservative values?

1) big government tells people what to think and what speech is appropriate, otherwise you are a racist..
2) people must have equal outcomes regardless of skill and effort. Especially across skin color and gender lines.
3) government will do whatever it wants, and you "masses" suck it up and do as you are told, pay more taxes.

Then, by definition, the person elected isn't a liberal. Liberalism isn't a self-identifying term. You either meet the definition or your an imposter.

Can I, an atheist who thoroughly disbelieves in the divinity of Christ, accurate claim to be a Christian? Can you accurate claim to be an atheist who believes in god? Can a man who chop off his dick accurately claim to be a woman? I though you believed that self-identification was bullshit.

FortWayne says

1) big government tells people what to think and what speech is appropriate, otherwise you are a racist..

That's a conservative position, one that both the left and the right are guilty of. It has never been a liberal position.

The left says you can't fly the Confederate battle flag. The right says you can't burn the American flag. A liberal says you have the right to do both.

Stop blaming liberals for the failings of conservatives. Everything you bitch about is a conservative action. You just don't like conservatives with cultures other than your own, but they are still conservatives because they are trying to CONSERVE their culture, and conserving cultural preferences and dominance is the DEFINING CHARACTERISTIC of conservativism and the entire reason it's calls "conserve-atism". It's a freaking self-defining word. I don't see why English is so difficult for you. Isn't it your native language?

FortWayne says

2) people must have equal outcomes regardless of skill and effort. Especially across skin color and gender lines.

Again, that's a conservative philosophy, not a liberal one. We liberals believe in equal opportunity.

The conservative left is playing race games and promoting racial preference just like the conservative right always have. Different cultures, but some goals: racial domination and special treatment.

Liberal philosophy is the exact opposite: equality under law. As a liberal I'm firmly against Affirmative Action because it is racist and a violation of the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment. I'm also against the war on drugs for the exact same reason. Are you against the war on drugs? Unless the answer is a resounding yes, you are playing the same bullshit race games as the conservative right.

The left and the right deserve each other. They are both scumbag conservatives.

FortWayne says

3) government will do whatever it wants, and you "masses" suck it up and do as you are told, pay more taxes.

Big government has ALWAYS been a conservative position. The left wants government for force this culture onto the population. The right wants the government to force that culture onto the population. Same difference.

Liberals have always states, as I have, that government should be completely culturally agnostic and that the power of the state should never be used to force cultural preferences onto anyone. You, like all conservatives, have argued the exact opposite. You outright stated that the government should force culture onto people. Don't make me look up the quote.

Liberals believe that government should have the least amount of power necessary to protect rights and that the sole purpose of government is the protection of rights. Now rights include property rights, and property rights include public property rights, and public property includes the environment. We all breathe air from the atmosphere, so poisoning it is a violation of our rights.

In contrast, you want a nanny state that tells people how to dress. Want to deny that? Do you think it should be legal for people to walk around public nude? Unless the answer is a resounding yes, you believe in letting government do what it wants and force people to suck it up.

Comparing the two of us, I clearly believe in the government having far less power and far less discretion than you do. I am against and you are for...
- The government being able to create laws that have nothing to do with protecting rights like outlawing drugs, nudity, and prostitution.
- The government being able to spy on its citizens and violate wiretapping laws.
- The police being allowed to break into people's homes with no-knock warrants.
- The police being allowed to search a person's property without warrant because the cop says he has "reasonable suspicion".
- The prosecution of whistle blowers like Edward Snowden who reveal government crimes and unethical behavior. Well, unless it's the Democrat's unethical behavior, in which case you have no problem with Trump's people working with the Russian government on breaking into computers because it's the Democrats being attacked.
- The banning of political speech like flag burning or waving flags like the ISIS flag. The latter is no different than waving the terrorist Confederate battle flag adopted by the KKK. It's says your a scumbag, but you have the right to say this.

The bottom line is that I'm a rebel, as all true Americans are, whereas you are a sheep following the state blindly.

FortWayne says

Considering how Reagan fought against evils of communism, while liberals and Democrats were falling over themselves in appeasement that should clear out on what side of that sarcasm your Democratic party team is actually on.

Your full of shit. Reagan did nothing to stop communism, the political system, which is still alive and well in both Russia and China. The economic system in Russia had a partial collapse just like capitalism has had in America several times including in 2007. And that shouldn't be surprising since capitalism and communism are essentially the same damn system, giving control over production and distribution to a few individuals. Whether you call those individuals executives or party leaders is irrelevant. The government is just another hierarchy, not much different from a corporation that has dominated a market.

Capitalism, communism, and feudalism are like vanilla, french vanilla, and creamy vanilla. Sure, they may be subtly different, but they are all the same flavor and nothing like chocolate, strawberry, and banana. If the only ice cream parlor you ever visited has only these versions of vanilla, then your opinion on what flavor is best is irrelevant. You haven't tasted the range of flavors. The economic systems I propose are farther from any of those three systems than they are from each other.

I never said they weren't taxed already. However, most of those things are undertaxed which is why we have to tax income, which should not be taxed. Tax consumption of public resources, not wealth production. This aligns the interests of the individuals with the interest of society.
