Oh noes! Illinois wants to increase the Taxes on my's Air Jordans!!!
[link to www.stltoday.com]


The cost of a new pair of basketball shoes could jump by 25 cents under a proposal floated this week by an Illinois lawmaker.

State Rep. Will Davis, D-Hazel Crest, wants to create a new tax that would generate an estimated $3 million annually for a youth job preparation program. He said the added cost would likely go unnoticed by most consumers, while helping finance a program for kids during tight budget times.

“Everywhere, funding is challenged,”Davis said. “I see it as a uniquely creative way of helping youth.”


Last year saw two new fees added to the state’s roster of taxes. One would add a new entry fee tax at strip clubs to pay for domestic violence programs. The other would add a new $2 fee on license plates to help finance improvements toIllinois’ financially strapped state parks.

Davis himself owns at least five pairs of shoes that may qualify — golf shoes, baseball cleats, two pairs of basketball high-tops and running shoes.

You can get by in life WITHOUT shoes,
but it's pretty damn hard.

But hell, the same can be said about health care,
so let's tax the shit out of that, too.
