I tell ya, it's just a matter of time before they figure out a creative way to tax the air we breath.

All pretty much consumption taxes which many people find favourable to direct taxes on your income for example.

Also have the advantage of being somewhat self regulating. You couldn't make the tax on blueberries $10 a box for example because the consumer would simply not buy them. You could however raise income tax 10% and people would be forced to pay it.

The EPA is responsible for air quality, so technically you're already taxed for the air you breathe.

Little fact here, Maine doesn't produce 99% of the nation's Blueberries, that is a complete lie. They process some, and lead the nation, but in 2011 they lead the nation with only 16% not 99%. Maine uses blueberries that other states cultivated. The states in produced (grown) is New Jersey, Georgia, Oregon, Michigan, California in that order. This information is from Cornell Blueberry report.

I've lived in Pennsylvania my whole life, and I've never once heard of or seen an "Air Tax" on vacuum usage at a car wash

^ It is 'hidden' in the $1 price they charge at the coin slot.

A small percentage is collected by the State.

$1? gawd vacuums around me cost a whole 50 cents to use, or are included in the car wash price

^ Still, they send a percentage of the coins you put in to PA state revenue.

On a dollar, they take 6 cents, on 50 cents, 3 cents.

I live in a greedier area, where the car washes charge a dollar to vacuum.

It is the same with the 'track' programs at the races. The don't bother with 1 and .06 -- they hide the tax in the prices.

I was just pointing out that $1 seems high to me since everyone around me is 50 cents :p

I think the worst has got to be the tax on lottery winnings, and other such winnings.

That's even sneakier, I'm paying for it and didn't even know it.
