Yes, you read that correctly - President Obama's AG department has announced it will give America just what it needs - another tax! This time the Feds are imposing a 15 cent charge on all fresh Christmas trees to support a new Federal program to improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees. Glenn reacts to the latest bizarre economic ploy by the Obama admin -- why are they doing it?
"Stu, help me out on this. This is to promote Christmas trees?" Glenn asked.
"Yeah, it's a 15 cent per Christmas tree tax which goes to fund the promotion of Christmas trees," Stu answered.
"Everyone thinks Christmas trees are evil right now.So we need a new government program to promote them so people remember to buy them every year," Stu joked.
"Now, the real question is what is it that they are really doing with this Christmas tree tax?" Glenn asked.
"Are you suggesting that there could be an ulterior motive?" Stu said.
