Proposed NH "Horse Tax" Bill Sent To Pasture
CONCORD, N.H. -- A proposal to register horses and require proof of rabies vaccinations is headed for oblivion after an outcry by horse owners.
Hours before a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, state Rep. Carla Skinder said she will ask to have her bill killed.
Any guesses as to Ms. Skinders party affiliation?
Also from WMUR, yesterday:
The proposed bill would require horse owners to buy licenses for each animal every year and vaccinate against rabies. Critics said the proposal to charge $25 per animal is just an attempt to raise revenue.
No shit. Ya think?
And, from the Concord Monitor comes this latest example of "Gee, where have I encountered this particularly specious brand of bullshit before?".
Rep. Carla Skinder would like to set the record straight: She owns six horses, a donkey, six sheep, a potbellied pig, two dogs and a cat. Plus, her husband has a horse of his own.
Oh, yeah...now I remember.
Let's get this out of the way. I am a gun owner and a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment.
If it moves, New Hampshire Democrats will try to tax it.
Because, spending within our means is apparently out of the question.
