    I don't think this will fly. Most times people are OK with a tax it's because they don't see the direct link to them having to pay it. Skirting the political stuff, this tax would generally have consequence for all income groups, all ages. Everyone would have to pay some so they'll play hell getting votes for it because they can't use the "only the xxx will pay" divide and conquer technique they have honed so well.

    Socialism comes in all shapes and sizes.

    This reminds me of the do-gooders who tax sugary drinks to "curb obesity" instead of calling it what it actually is...a money grab.

    Going back to the title of the thread, (Taxing you on air intake is probably not far off.)
    If you live in California, you should be paid by the state for breathing. After all, you are using your lungs to filter the smog out of the air and make it cleaner. :)

    WRONG!

    You breathe out CO2, so you're heating up the planet. So you should be TAXED for breathing. :crazy:

    Mike, Maybe they will start taxing hot air(CO²) exhaled and the first one that should have that tax exercised against is Al Gore and all of the other politicians that have followed his lead with that nonsense.

    Don't worry about paying for it ,as the way our current administration is going- there won't be any clean air to breathe! Kiss the clean water that past presidents fought for goodbye too!

    See, and that's why we have killed this stuff so quickly in the past.
