VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
If you can afford a $100,000 car what the heck is $400?
What I don't like is in some states we are told that the extra Tax that is added on is to keep Cigs and Alcohol out of the hands of Minors. I'm glad to see that that is working so well in Texas.
C'mon NM, if one has a spouse that isn't 100, than you should be gratuitous enough to allow Half. Talk about being Chintzy!
"Businesses in D.C. that sell food or alcohol are required to charge customers five cents for every paper or plastic disposable bag they take. The store gets to keep a penny, and the balance goes to a government fund dedicated to cleaning up the Anacostia River.
Consumers and storekeepers grumbled at the program's debut in 2010. It has raised about $7 million so far, below expectations, but the program’s designers see this as a positive sign—that shoppers have opted to bring their own reusable bags."
So what about the river, is it cleaner? Bunch of BS if you ask me, the tax money probably gets comingled with some type of general fund so the pols can steal from it. Bastards.
The name is "hidden" taxes. Not the kind tacked on @ the end of your
receipt from WAL-MART; not the colorful sticker on your tobacco product or bottle
of liquor. These are the taxes that farmers, manufacturers, service providers,
etc. get hit with daily.
Is MSN just discovering this now???????????
