Where Democrats have firm control, everything conceivable is subject to their greedy taxation — even rain. From New Jersey:
A new bill calls for the creation of local or regional storm water utilities, giving local counties and municipalities the power to collect a tax from properties with large paved surfaces such as parking lots…
This would squeeze taxes from owners of both businesses and homeowners upon whose property rain falls.
The bill passed in the Senate and the Assembly and is now headed to Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk.
Murphy being a Democrat, he is unlikely to say no to a new tax.
New Jersey is already one of the highest-taxed states in the union. Yet it may be the state with the worst finances. If high taxes solved fiscal problems, New Jersey would be high and dry. Taxing rain will submerge it still deeper in the flood of economic dysfunction that characterizes states run by moonbats.
