Buttigieg BUSTED, Caught Being Driven To Work Before Biking In A Suit

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was caught on video being driven by staffers before exiting his car to ride a bike while wearing a suit. Biking is one of the Left’s methods of “green” virtue signaling to other adherents of climate change business constrictions.

The vehicle that Buttigieg’s staffers used is a gas-guzzling armored Suburban. They did not even commit to using a Prius or some other “environmentally friendly” vehicle.

After public outcry, Buttigieg reversed course on his scheme to tax vehicles for driving “per mile.”

“I think that shows a lot of promise,” Buttigieg previously said of the mileage tax. “If we believe in that so-called user pays principle, the idea that part of how we pay for roads is you pay based on how much you drive.”

He continued, “The gas tax used to be the obvious way to do it — it’s not anymore, so a so-called vehicle-miles-traveled tax or mileage tax, whatever you want to call it, could be a way to do it.”

In his flip-flopping reversal, Buttigieg told CNN, “if there’s a way to do it that doesn’t increase the burden on the middle class, we can look at it, but if we do, we’ve got to recognize that’s still not going to be the long-term answer.”

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson revealed that only 5% of Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure spending spree will actually go to fixing roads and bridges.

“I hope we can work in good faith with folks across the aisle in Congress to get some votes there,” Buttigieg said when asked of the possibility that Biden’s first two major initiatives, the Covid relief package and now the infrastructure proposal, might not garner any Republican support.

“Ultimately it’s up to them whether they are going to support something,” he continued. “But we’re going to work with them to try to shape it in a way that earns as much support as possible.”
