Flush with success at foisting human cloning and abortion funding on Missouri taxpayers, noted toilet paper critic Sheryl Crow must have gotten to the mayor of Omaha-- he wants the Feds to tax toilet paper:
Mayor Jim Suttle went to Washington Tuesday flush with ideas for how federal officials could help cities like Omaha pay for multibillion-dollar sewer projects.
Among the items on his brainstorming list: a proposal for a 10-cent federal tax on every roll of toilet paper you buy.
Based on the four-pack price for Charmin double rolls Tuesday at a midtown Hy-Vee, such a tax would add more than 10 percent to the per-roll price, pushing it over a buck.
The idea came from a failed 2009 House measure by an Oregon congressman to help cities and the environment.
I hope that idea goes quickly down the drain. It's amazing how these politicians cling to the climate change fraud. Funny, though-- no mention of Crow in the article; her name's been wiped clean off.
