I always find it just amazing when conservatives raise “fees” on pretty much everything we do but then say they never raised taxes. Well – you know what … taxes pay for services by the government. And if you’re going to make me pay more for a service by government whether state, local or federal – that IS A TAX.
People can be stupid but they’re not that stupid. Here is a video of Mitt Romney talking about his record of “raising fees”. He literally said:
“Q. Isn’t a fee a tax?
A. If it were a tax – we’d call it a tax.
Q. But Governor – that’s a gimmick.”
Buzzfeed has a list of fees that Mitt Romney either passed or attempted to pass – you can find them all HERE:
