Sinners...REPENT and PAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The key factors in the national economic slump have hit the state of Nevada particularly hard, so one lawmaker had an unusual idea to generate new revenues: tax the sex acts performed at brothels.
"I don't know why people won't recognize that we have a legal industry," state Sen. Bob Coffin, who introduced the legislation, told the Associated Press. "I'm willing to go in and do the dirty work if no one else will."
The proposal, which died in committee last week, is just one example of how struggling state and local governments are trying to turn citizens' vices into much-needed new moneys to plug their budget gaps in tough economic times.
Interesting times indeed.
