Christmas Tree Tax

I just read an article where the Obama administration has added a new tax to the list…..

If you are planning to buy a fresh Christmas tree, you may be paying a little more.  They have instituted a $0.15 fee on all sales of fresh trees, for sellers that sell more than 500 trees a year.

This is being done to help fund a campaign to improve the image and help in marketing of Christmas trees.  This makes complete sense in regards to the Obama administration.  This is going to hurt American businesses and will probably boost the sales of artificial Christmas trees.  Guess where most of them are made…. that’s right oversees.  So not only will they hurt American businesses but they will be helping oversees business.

About the only effective thing I think we can do is to support our local small businesses.
