Taxing everything...good grief

From Watts Up With That via Taxable Talk via Taxing Tennessee:

Congressman Earl Blumenauer's (D-OR) proposed Water Resources Protection Act. Buried in this legislation are four new taxes [link opens a Word document]

- 3% excise tax on items disposed of in wastewater, such as toothpaste, cosmetics, toilet paper and cooking oil: These products wind up in the water stream and require clean up by sewage treatment plants.

- 0.5% excise tax on pharmaceutical products.

- 0.15% tax corporate profits over $4 million.

- 4 cent per container excise tax on water-based beverages.

What beverage is not water based?

Labels: ,

So does that mean that gun-totin republicans can start complainin that the guv-ment is literally taxing the s--- out of them?
