Sounds like another attempt to increase taxes; taking more money away from the people who earn it and giving it to the government. "It's for the
children" seems to be an easy excuse to try to make it more appealing.
I suspect that the money will likely go into a "general" fund account where there is no accounting of where it is used.
Now, why go after sports shoes if the First Lady wants the kids to be more active? Sorry. I think I just answered that by asking it.
On one end,
they tell everyone to do something, and on the other end, they create a source of revenue for themselves that ties in with what everyone would
purchase to help them do what the politicians are wanting them to do.
Maybe later, they can then "reward" the people who bought the shoes and are following the politically correct agenda (rebates/gifts/etc), while
"not rewarding" those wanting another agenda.
I'm getting tired of all these new excuses to raise taxes. Maybe I'll feel better when I don't have any more for them to tax and end up on the
receiving/handout end of things.
...I probably won't though. Because by then, there probably won't be anything left to give out.
