Prepare for the Fed. This directly affects interstate commerce, over which the Federal Government does have jurisdiction. If you tax such things as trucking companies on mileage then you will see a rise in the price of everything (like higher groceries). So, raise the price on driving and raise the price on groceries?

They might try it on for size and then get backlash for trying something so silly.

Well, (b) and (c) sound like they apply to repair shops who recover data from someones hard drive. Now, how many repair shops do you know who aren't involved in recovering "lost" data from hard drives? I'd say the vast majority of repair places are affected in those statements.
