I'm not sure which is harder to believe: that one person came up with this idea, or that 43 other Senators think it's a great idea.
As Mark Twain is reputed to have said, "Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."
And, yes, when I went to double check the reality here: Congress's web server is out. So, please, let this be a hoax that I need to apologize for publicizing. Please.
If the stupidity doesn't stop, and, yes, my liberal friends, much of it has been going on for years, not months, we'll make more money charging people to get out than to get in. What have we become?
Edit: apparently the link is out. The proposal is to fund a government effort to encourage international tourists to come to the US, as tourism has fallen post 9-11. The plan is to pay for this, at least partially, by charging international tourists an additional $10 to come into the US. How does that work?

Ok, the link to Club for Growth is out. The proposal is to create a government fund to encourage international tourists to come to the USA. The funding will come from primarily from a $10 charge that international tourists will pay when they come to the US.ReplyDelete
