Yesterday, Paterson unveiled his latest budget – a proposal that included tax hikes on literally everything. Just a few of the items being taxed: Smokes, cabs, hookers, booze, ice picks, movie tickets, Chihuahua puppies, chocolate-covered strawberries, gonorrhea, trampolines, iPods, crack, Italian food and black market Asian babies.
Paterson basically decided to tax everything except Mountain Dew. [hey kids, we’re going shopping in Jersey!]
Last person to leave the state; don’t forget to turn out the lights.
UPDATE: Scratch that, he apparently decided to tax Mountain Dew as well.
UPDATE II: “…wait until NY Governor hears the polls tomorrow.” Our bad.
