The slugs who work for Gavin Newsom, formerly the Alcalde de la puebla de San Francisco, have made a MAJOR discovery. They found out that the formerly great state of California extorts ZERO tax money off of residential water hookups in the state. They now intend to tax tap water in the state.

They are calling it a fee, but it is clearly a tax and meets the legal definition of a tax, so they have to con 2/3 of the voters into buying into it to get it passed. If successful they will then get 95 cents per month (for starters) from everybody for the privilege of drinking water from a tap. That will, of course, go up. In ten years it will be ten dollars, and there will be an administrative infrastructure to support it, with maximum use restrictions, overuse charges, mandatory quality testing on top of the already done local mandatory quality testing, and further restrictions on sinking your own well, which is pretty much impossible right now anyway.

Brought to you from the state that tried to tax cow farts.

Let me get this straight. You already pay a water bill, right?
