Maloney: Let's Deny Tax Breaks To Businesses That Discriminate (Like Augusta) April 17, 2012

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), the Congresswoman who looks like her eyes are never open, has recently decided that she wants to give a new, harsher meaning to the acronym "D.O.A."

She is introducing legislation to end certain tax breaks for businesses, like the Augusta National Golf Club, which discriminate on the basis of gender.

And she's got a really cool strategy to sell it. She has changed the name of the legislation from "Ending Tax Breaks For Discrimination Act" to "Equal Pay At Augusta Act".

And considering that she has introduced this legislation to no avail multiple times since 2003, a new name may be just what is needed.

P.T. Barnum would be so proud.

And maybe, just maybe, she intends to publicly embarass House Speaker John Boehner. Brace yourself here: Rep. Boehner is a member of an all-male golf club in Maryland.

Pwned!

Some good news: Ending these tax breaks would probably do more to reduce the deficit than the ill-fated Buffett Rule. That is to say, over the next 10 years it will probably take in enough to pay down more than .3% of the current national debt, which is all that the Buffet Rule would do.

Or probably not. It really doesn't matter. Since, to Democrats, taxation is more about fairness than revenue.

Or at least what they perceive to be fairness.
