New Mexico TV/video game tax dies.

   0
GamePolitics is reporting that an attempt to Tax T.V. and video games has died in committe. Basically The bill if passed would have placed a 1% surcharge on T.V.'s and video games and the procceds would have went to outdoor education.

"The measure had been backed by a broad coalition of groups, led by the Sierra Club. The fund would have helped pay for outdoor education throughout the state. The tax would have been the first of its kind in the nation…

Critics complained they shouldn’t have to foot the bill for parents who don’t know how to raise their children." *

While this proposed tax was on electronic devices it would have pissed me off if it had been on car tires. Any form of government in this country that attempts to limit my freedom by taxing a behavior they deem bad needs to be bitch slapped by reanimated versions of the founding fathers. I am really glad the New Mexican legislatures had the balls to see this for what it was and kill it quickly.



* CopyPasta obviously but for some reason the BBcode was being a bitch about bolding shit this morning.
