Agreed, not a fan of incentives that disrupt the free market.
You should lobby your congressmen to put an end to the $15B Plus in annual US subsidies to Big Oil.

Plus your States share of the $5B Plus in annual State Subsidies to Big Oil.

These are direct subsidies. Which are only 8% of the total. For example Big Oil gets to write off capital expenses in 1 year. As opposed to most businesses which is 20 years.

So altogether the US subsidies Big Oil to the tune of $250B plus a year. Which dramatically reduces the cost to own an ICEv, To the tune of a ~$17k for every new ICEv sold last year. And that distorts the auto market. And $250B is a conservative estimate.

Ah, but 81% of us pay payroll taxes so we aren't exactly NOT paying taxes. The reason 57% (for 2021) don't pay FIT is because they fall below the cut-off after they figure their AGI, not because they're cheating (like rich people do). They don't make enough money to have to pay taxes, according to the tax code. But I digress.....this is not what this thread is about.

Yes, the bottom half payroll taxes.

Bottom half adults don't pay anything for the the Military. Or the Federal bureaucracy.

That is not their fair share. That is cheating.
