Moronic Lawmakers Propose Higher State Hotel Tax To Help Balance Budget

Some Pennsylvania lawmakers want to raise the state’s hotel tax to help fill a $2.2 billion budget gap.

The proposal surfaced Tuesday in the House of Representatives. It would raise the tax from 6 percent to 11 percent and put Pennsylvania in the top 10 states in hotel taxes. Combined with local hotel taxes, the increase would give Philadelphia and Pittsburgh the nation’s first and second highest hotel taxes.

Lawmakers overwhelmingly approved a $32 billion budget bill June 30, but haven’t agreed on how to fully fund it.

And this ladies and gentleman, proves you can not fix stupid.
