There goes New Jersey again

Taxing tap water?

Never short on ideas for things to tax, lawmakers in New Jersey are considering a tax on tap water.

The proposal is being floated by State Sen. Bob Smith D-Middlesex, who is trying to say it’s not actually a tax but a ‘user fee’.

“It is a user fee based on volume,” Smith told Fox 5’s Chasing New Jersey.

A “user fee” Isn’t that what water bills are?

It would add 10 cents for every 1,000 gallons of water a home uses.  Smith says that will only add $32 a year to the “average” water bill.

Sure, it is only $32 of someone else’s money you little statist
