Taxing to coerce people to behave differently is a bad idea
So crime fighting has come to this: taxing bullets.
Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle proposes taxes on guns and bullets to fight crime, a higher tax on cigarettes to reduce smoking, and a tax on major purchases that local residents and businesses make outside the county to keep those purchases inside the county.
Wow, and civics teachers tell students that taxes are collected to fund government. Apparently they need to revise their lessons. As leader of the second-largest county government in the nation, Preckwinkle has made it clear she believes taxes are also collected to coerce people to behave as she prefers.
