Clown Tax In Maine Might Hit Bloated State Government Hardest

States Seeking Cash Hope to Expand Taxes to Services
In June, voters in Maine will decide whether to accept a state overhaul of its tax system that would newly tax services like tailor alterations, blimp rides, and entertainment provided by clowns, comedians and jugglers.

Okay, they can't alter government to suit the voter, they aren't funny, can't juggle money and budgets in a responsible manner, but the state is slow, bloated and slow to react and their behavior is buffoonish which makes taxing blimp rides and clown taxes appropriate.

Appropriate if the new taxes are levied on the state government. But make them buy their own rubber noses and oversized shoes.
