Taxing Toilet Paper?

“People who complain about taxes can be divided into two classes: men and women.”
— Unknown

I thought for sure this was another Republican ownership fee/tax. When I looked into it, it was an absurd Florida state Democrat idea. Sen. Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee, has filed a bill to tax toilet paper at two cents a roll. The tax would raise about $30-million a year for new sewer systems.

Have we squatted so low as to promote a toilet paper tax movement? Stop with the fees already. This is what happens when you stop taxing the rich; the poor will barely be able to wipe their rear ends.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, Lawson admitted, "It's a funny bill, but it's serious." Lawson says he wants to protect Florida's underground water supply and help small towns pay for sewers.

The “witty” Republican House Speaker Allan Bense said, "Sounds like a pretty crappy bill to me."

I saw a headline in the paper and thought it was a silly story, so I didn't bother to read it.

I loved your line "Have we squatted so low," etc... very clever.

I think that's far less justafiable than Seattle's latte tax.. lol

We just instituted a similar thing in our community for our Sanctuary in CA, as we need a new sewer system, so I had to laugh.. It's called the butt tax. A quarter every s*** until we get it fixed.. It's working! :-) At least ours is voluntary. We can still afford to poop. My friend John made some piggy banks specially for it, with the slots in their little raised butts, very cute!
