I know the writer said they were contemplating a tax. But most of the article discussed fees.

Republicans impose fees.

Democrats impose taxes.

And the only difference is what they call it. It still amounts to taking more money from people.

Before long they'll raise taxes on the fees.

Or there will be higher fess on the taxes.

I personally support lowering taxes and raising use fees on optional services such as:

Parks
Bus
Airport Authority
Library

These services are all entirely optional and the people who use them should pay for them, not the tax base.

Then again, it'd be even better if all the above were privatized.

The Sec'y of State has followed that lead by raising fees on all sorts of optional services such as license plate fees, driver license fees, vehicle title fees, and waiting in long line fees.

Yeah...those aren't optional service. An optional service I see as one that could (or currently has) private sector alternatives.

SoS fees are a personal property tax :(
