Those who spring for a lap dance or personal escort in Florida could inadvertently be helping the elderly, if an up-and-coming bill is passed into law, the Gainesville Sun reported Tuesday.

The proposed law, House Bill 751, would create a sales tax on “adult entertainment services” that would be fed to low-income nursing homes, the Sun reported. These funds would defray the cost of some services for senior citizens, including haircuts and trips to the movies.

Yeah, and money from the lottery would help support schools. I was around before the lotto hit FL and that was the argument. Still, teachers are buying chaulk, crayons and tissues for their classes because the schools say they can't afford them.

It's garbage, piled higher and deeper by the same curb. What part of "sin" don't politicians understand?
