"Debater: left-wing parties see the high petrol rates as a cash cow to the state."
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. During the last few days we have been able to see a great popular rebellion against the high petrol rates. Several hundred thousand swedes have joined in Bensinupproret calling for lower gasoline prices, and on Friday the expected demonstrations all over Sweden take place."
"Moderate Youth league has long taken the position that the polluters of the environment shall also pay for itself. The environmental taxes that we have to compensate for the klimatnegativa effect, which occurs when, for example, running a car on petrol or diesel, as it's usually called the Polluter Pays Principle. The principle can probably the vast majority of swedes think is quite reasonable. The same principle is usually used as the argument for the high fuel tax. The only problem is that the tax on fuel is much higher than what the purely miljökompensatoriskt justifies."
"According to 2018, the nobel laureate in economics, miljöforskaren William Nordhaus, the Swedish carbon dioxide tax is four times as high as the optimum to cover the environmental damage. We överbeskattar thus, carbon dioxide. The state agency VTI, Swedish national road and transport research institute, has estimated the social costs linked to the damage of the environment, the infrastructure and noise and the accidents to about two dollars per litre. "
"today, the tax on gasoline to the whole ten crowns per litre! With today's oil prices that gives a price of six crowns per liter, and then the vat and tax that covers the environmental impact thus had a reasonable price been about 10 sek per litre."
"The crusade against the car brought, particularly from the left parties have, therefore, nothing with the environment to make. Rather, it is about ensuring people's reliance on the car as a cash cow for the state. When symbolpolitiskt waste without benefit to the climate as subsidies to electric bikes for city-dwellers to be financed so it is dependent on the car that have to pay. To the greatest extent, ordinary, honest people who live in rural areas. "
"The red-green parties seem to stupid to believe that people mostly nöjesåker with his car. The understanding that humans are dependent on the car to be able to live, get to their jobs, download and submit the preschool and observe the children to idrottsträningar seems to be non-existent. In the best cases, it is ignorance, at worst contempt for those who can't afford to get a new car. How else to interpret the government's automatic tax increases on gasoline and diesel, which strikes hard against all outside the big cities?"
"It is about time that the Swedish government and the parties on the left spelhalvan in politics tell the truth and stop misleading the people of sweden – the high petrol rates is a cash cow for the state and not at all in the first hand of a case. "
"for a long time, the Swedish people found themselves in the grotesquely high tax burden and tied his fist in the pocket, it is a revolt against the high tax we now see? Even if the uprising so far is peaceful in comparison with the Yellow Vests in France, I had been worried about discontent if I were the government. It is time that the government's elitist storstadspolitik an end. The whole of Sweden must live. I am ready with the vest on Friday!"
