How would you like to be taxed by the mile? Maybe on top of the gas tax you pay for driving a vehicle?
That is an idea the Obama administration is kicking around with in a draft proposal in the offing.

Now the article says
News of the draft follows a March Congressional Budget Office report that supported the idea of taxing drivers based on miles driven.
