Christmas Tree Tax by Obama.

I wonder if singling out Christmas Trees with a special tax is a poke at Christians? Obama slapped a .15 c tax on trees . He claimed it was to help the Chrismas Tree Growers against plastic trees imported from Asia.

The White House cancelled it after a lot of protests. I see a lot of problems with ones brain even thinking of a tax like this.

Well, the catch is that its not actually a 'tax', it's a fee. Clear as mud, right?
