Germany may charge foreigners an Autobahn toll [w/poll]

Raising taxes in any democratic country is tricky business, but there are certain groups on which it's easier to raise taxes than others. Smokers, for example, have a hard time making an argument against raising taxes on cigarettes. As far as the working class is concerned, raising taxes on the rich is a no-brainer. And in Germany, they may find it easiest to levy taxes against non-Germans.

Texas toll road to get 85 mph speed limit?

Oh, Montana, how we miss your speed-limitless ways of the mid-1990s.
