I oppose any form of tax on the American people or on the organization outlided blow and will vote out of office anyone that engages in promoting this tax. A “Drudge Tax” on news aggregators like The Drudge Report * A “journalism division” of AmeriCorps -- forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of liberal journalists! * A direct Journalism Bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist” -- YOU AND I will be forced to fund the liberal media! * A 5% tax on consumer electronics (like the iPad) * Possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion “Citizenship Media Fund”
