It Had To Be Said

In honor of the communist/illegal immigrant holiday, New Jersey is contemplating the Taco Bell tax.

...huh? It's not Mexican food? My bad...

There are any of a number of sin (Pigovian or sumptuary) taxes out there- cigarettes, alcohol, going to adult entertainment venues... even staying at hotels or going to sporting events. At least New Jersey is being honest about it.
The thought of taxing a Big Mac or a Wendy's burger came up at a New Jersey Hospital Association meeting where Gov. Jon S. Corzine was asked if it could be an option to help fund struggling hospitals. At the meeting, he reportedly called it a "constructive suggestion."
His spokescritter later said there were no plans to tax fast food. uh-huh... I'm just surprised they're not trying to sell it using the tried and true "it's for their own good" argument. Like I said, at least they're being honest about it.
