Fox News is running a story referring to a proposed “accident tax” in New York City. The only problem is that what the story refers to is actually a user fee and not a tax. Only those people involved in an accident and require the use of City fire services would have to pay the fee. Taxes are levied on everyone in jurisdiction while user fees are charged to persons requiring services.
At least Fox News could get the terminology correct. But the Fear created by the alarmist headline must be better for ratings and Fox’s political agenda.
