More on the Christmas tree tax: it was in the works before Obama took office, and the idea came from the industry.
According to Politifact, the Administration is reconsidering. Oh, for God's sake.
There are people struggling to find food in this country. There are people out of work. There are people without health insurance or access to reasonable health care.
And we are spending time arguing over a freaking fifteen-cent tax?
And there are people crying over the equivalent of one-quarter of a candy bar?
What the hell is wrong with them?
What I want is someone in the Administration to stand up to the bullies here. I want someone to say "Oh, for God's sake. It's fifteen cents. If you can afford a tree, you can afford this fee."
I am simply gob-smacked that there are people so out of touch with reality that this bothers them.
