Brilliant Tax Idea

From Don Boudreaux:
The real and truly harmful epidemic in America is not obesity, but meddlesomeness. I dislike taxes, but if government is destined to create yet another ’sin tax,’ I propose that it be, not a calorie-added tax, but a meddlesomeness-added tax. It’s time that Mr. Zinczenko and other busybodies pay for the harm that they impose on others.

Donald J. Boudreaux
Of course, the problem with Boudreaux's idea is that a government can't tax another government.
