Porn Tax Considered As Solution To Budget Shortfall
Written by: Doug G. Ware

LOS ANGELES - California state lawmakers are considering an unusual idea to solve the state's huge budget shortfall: Tax pornography.

The idea was proposed by a state assemblyman, and would impose a 25 percent tax on the production and sales of pornographic videos -- the vast majority of which are made in southern California.

SAY IT ISN'T SO!!!! That's it I am calling the Governator right now!!! J/K

That being said I am with Marty in that there is so much free porn on the internet it wouldn't do much to solve that problem. That has to be one of the most rediculous ideas to solve a budget problem. I am not sure yet what brainiac came up with that idea, but he needs to have his head checked. And if they were to tax the production of videos and pictures as described in the article only one thing will happen. Sales, production and distribution will move out of state. And last time I saw figures on Dateline or 20/20, it was a BILLION dollar industry. I don't think that would be a very smart move to have them pick up and relocate. How about cutting lawmakers expense account budgets? Perhaps we could stop spending money on illeagal immigrants?

Is this to be a tax on manufacturing or consumption? if it is the later it will probably bankrupt the "city cross the bay"...
