Dem Targets X- Raters For Taxes

At first glance I thought the roles were being reversed here, with a democrat going after the porn industry and republicans apparently defending it. Not really, though.

You have a democrat looking for more sources of revenue for pet projects and republicans opposing the bill because they oppose tax increases in general.
I guess that's just business as usual in the state capitol. Still, seems a little weird to see a democrat targeting porn oriented businesses.

What gets me in reading the article is no mention is made that nearly all the things he's targeting are already taxed one way or another.

Calderon is on to something here. Since everything is already taxed we can continue with the second layer of taxes. State sales taxes on motor fuel are levied AFTER the state and federal highway taxes are included so we are taxing TAXES. But all of us progressives know gas is expensive because of "Big Oil" gouging us. Let's go after "Big Porn".

Taxing taxes? I like that idea. How about California taxes the federal government's income from income tax?
