Chamber of Business Supports The “Terrorist Tax” (July 5, 2010)

The Chamber of Business announced this morning that it supports the proposed “Terrorist Tax.”  Heathcliff Lucre, IV, noted at the press conference:  “My bona fides are bona fide.  I despise each and every tax and all taxes.  The words ‘tax’ and “taxes’ are four-letter words in my book.  My wife and I so despise taxes that we went out and got matching tattoos on our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary proclaiming:  ‘Taxes Stink.’  The decision to support a twenty-five cent per gallon hike in the tax on gasoline every quarter was wrenching.  Nonetheless, after a spirited debate, the Board moved and approved the decision to support the tax.  The Terrorist Tax is the one tax that will raise much-needed revenue and also spur other positive private sector market-based initiatives.  The tax is painful but necessary.”
