Ah, yes....the so-called "sin" taxes so beloved of lawmakers. Tobacco and alcohol. Only politically-incorrect lower class people use these anymore,
so let's tax the living crap out of them to "discourage" their use (while hitting the people who can least afford them with the highest taxes).
The gym-going, jogging, spring water drinking, bicycle-riding Yuppies get a pass while the people who could use a break get taxed more.
Enforce compliance with socially accepted norms while driving those who refuse to comply to the fringe and tax them to death, even though they are
engaging in 100% legal behavior.
While the Feds drive the economy to ruination.
What a great government we have! This is really Change You Can Believe In!
