cat tax?????

Tax cats to solve health care spending..

I hope this was tongue in cheek, a la Jonathon Swift's 'A Modest Proposal'. Tax for cat owners but tax break for dog owners?....what evidence is there that cats are the cause of all allergies?

I do agree to some extent that people with bad habits like eating too much junk, not exercising, or smoking should pay more for healthcare, I don't know how to enforce this..some people are overweight due to desk jobs, no time to exercise, genetics, living in a junk food jungle, so some people have the odds stacked against them. Smoking though, its a pet peeve of mine and those who were aware of the dangers should just never had started.

didn't see a way to comment on this article.

Completely tongue-in-cheek...I got that when the author suggested people pay taxes if they don't wear hats in the sun.

Also, one can comment on the article. Look for the blue bar at the end of the article. It says "## comments" and to the right "Join the discussion."

It's funny to read some comments of people who are in an outrage over this article.
