    Bill Gates has proposed this to "defray the societal cost that robots will create". http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technolo...eoples-jobs-should-pay-taxes-says-bill-gates/

    This is already a political issue in France, https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/...ate-wants-to-tax-robots-to-save-human-workers

    Bloomberg says taxing robots is a "flawed idea" https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-01-23/why-benoit-hamon-s-idea-of-a-robot-tax-is-flawed

    This is a fascinating topic that will take years, if not decades, even centuries to resolve.
    Remember, "no taxation without representation"? What do you think?

    Taxing any SDC service just adds cost of services to the public which is in direct conflict of one of the largest benefits, a substantially lower cost of living.

    I would agree with a time limited and nonrenewable tax to defer costs from reeducation and unemployment if it went directly to helping displaced drivers. Taxing just to money grab for the general fund should be opposed by all US citizens.

    Losing jobs and not lowering costs substantially, is a lose-lose.
  3. Charge an income tax to each Robot that takes human jobs !
    An A.I. TARRIFF !
