Plastic bag tax

SB 5248, another proposed tax on plastic shopping bags.  This proposal would impose a two-cent tax on each plastic bag used in retail sale.  

The Democrat sponsors, Senators Chase and Kline, say they are motivated by environmental and landfill worries.  But plastic bags are less than 2% of the waste stream going to landfills.  Clearly, this is just another tax for money hungry politicians so they can spend our money with their cronies.

    Already have this nonsense in Seattle. On the bright side, two cents should buy enough string to tie said plastic bags snugly around the heads of said moonbat politicians...
