+ - Seattle Lawmaker Wants to Tax Breathing ->

Submitted by terbeaux
terbeaux (2579575) writes "The fact that Rep Ed Orcutt (R — WA) wants to tax bicycle use is not extraordinary. The representative's irrational conviction is. SeattleBikeBlog has confirmed reports that Orcutt does not feel bicycling is environmentally friendly because the activity causes cyclists to have “an increased heart rate and respiration.” When they contacted him he clarified that “You would be giving off more CO2 if you are riding a bike than driving in a car...” Cascade blog has posted the full exchange between Rep Ed Orcutt and a citizen concerned about the new tax.

All of this is in spite of Orcutt receiving his Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Maine."
