Quantcast

This is Independence day, sort of. Here are a few "taxes" the government could force up to "pay" thanks to John Roberts. Reasonable or no way José?

If you have decided to go along with
Chief Justice Roberts and agree that Obamacare is a tax, now is the time
to contemplate the many things this reading will allow Congress to
require you to do.


The list is literally endless, because
of the endless number of things ideologues can come up with. But these
are some of the top tunes.


1. Congress can force you to buy an electric car.


2. Congress can force you to buy solar panels.


3. Congress can force you to buy and install a remote-control thermostat for your home.


4. Congress can force you to buy internet service.


5. Congress can force you to buy particular kinds of food.


6. Congress can force you to buy contraceptives for yourself.


7. Congress can force you to buy biofuels, even if you don’t have any use for them.


8. Congress can force you to donate to political causes and “charities.”


9. Congress can force you to pay union dues.


10. Congress can force you to buy the New York Times.


11. Congress can force you to buy “green travel” packages.


12. Congress can force you to buy a 3-bedroom, 2-bath townhome with a 1-car parking spot for your electric car.


13. Congress can force you to pay for soccer, gymnastics, and ballet lessons for your children.


14. Congress can force you to pay for a gym membership.


15. Congress can force you to rent a 2-bedroom apartment with no parking space.


16. Congress can force you to borrow money.


17. Congress can force you to pay for a
state-college education for your children, regardless of where or
whether they actually attend college.


17. Congress can force you to buy a goat.


19. Congress can force you to hire people.


20. Congress can force you to buy mass transit passes, whether you use mass transit or not.


The list could go on and on. After
all, if fining people for not buying health insurance is the same thing
as a “tax,” then fining them for not spending on other things is also a
tax.

Farnsworth's take:

I posted this because I've thought the same things myself. The government can now say anything is a "tax".... it's a slippery slope. Liberals will deny that it's ridicules and the government would never do that....really? Prove it?
