A public finance Top 5 list

An excellent TOP 5 list yesterday:


The United States Congress has just passed President Obama's "compromise" version of a bill that would extend the Bush tax cuts implemented in the early '00s. This version is said to have provisions that appeal to both the left and the right.

Let's take a closer look at the bill, shall we?

The Top 5 Hidden Provisions of the Obama Tax Bill

5> Tax payers may choose to donate $1 to help the president get an American birth certificate.

4> The Romney Loophole: The cost of hair care products may be deducted from your personal taxes if the resulting hairdo can withstand gusts of up to 40 mph.

3> Democrats claiming to favor the Bush tax cuts inserted language allowing strippers to deduct 100% of Brazilian wax expenses.

2> New alternative-energy windbag subsidies for Limbaugh, Olbermann, O'Reilly and Beck.

and's Number 1 Hidden Provision of the Obama Tax Bill...

1> One-time airport restroom sex partners can now be counted as dependents.

As an aside, I am pretty sure that Brazilian waxes are already deductible as a work expense for strippers under current tax law.

Oh, and I laughed the hardest at #5.
