Tedious and I only made it through the first 30 seconds, but I thought progressive types were in favour of "fat" taxes?My pizza place already knows its me when I call and where to bring the pie to.
Absolutely ! More "fat" taxes and boozer premiums, more anti smoking rules and compulsory weight checks. The RWDB's don't want to have to pay for all consequences of the fun others have had do they ?
I don't know what it's like in HK, but the amount of tax the government rips off me in NSW every time I buy a pack of smokes or a bottle of wine is insane enough already...I remember being in New York City and seeing Aussie wines for essentially the same price, despite having been shipped 10,000 miles, something I presume is due to NSW's ridiculous sin-tax regime.What was Reagan's definition of government? "If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it!"
