I really feel for them. This has to be one of the most over-regulated areas of the economy and the policies implemented there are moving into other sectors.

Too add this insult to injury is outrageous. I really see little remedy for this problem because it seems to be getting worse and worse in the trucking industry.

Why in the world are Mexican trucks being subsidized? It would be interesting to note if any of those trucks belong to American owners.

With the fuel costs and repairs, I have no idea how these guys do it. Passing costs off to the customers can only go on for so long.

They also charge $30.00 per quarter just to maintain your PCI compliance (whatever that is) and it is getting terrible. I only get $35.00 per night for a room and add taxes at 12.625% to that, which I ALREADY have to pay over 2.5% on the tax when something is charged, and I never even GET tax money!!

Between the economy and these schmucks, it is next to impossible for a trucker to make a living.


kick in the balls to the American worker. If they keep pulling stuff like this they are going to find out the hard way just how angry the American worker can become. They are pushing all the buttons to get Americans rioting on the lawn of DC.
