A Secret Plan to Block Obama's Tax Hikes?

In the battle against higher taxes and wasteful spending, I've never thought that witches would be an ally, but Romanian politicians apparently voted down a proposed tax because they were afraid of being cursed. We curse politicians in America all the time, of course, but in a different way. And since that milder approach doesn't seem to work very well, maybe it's time to up the ante?

Lawmakers Alin Popoviciu and Cristi Dugulescu of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party drafted a law where witches and fortune tellers would have to produce receipts, and would also be held liable for wrong predictions, a measure which was part of the government's drive to increase revenue. Romania's Senate voted down the proposal Tuesday. Popoviciu claimed lawmakers were frightened of being cursed. It's unclear if Popoviciu and Dugulescu will try to redraft the law.
