Arizona Republican Hopes To Fund Trump’s Border Wall By Taxing Online Porn

Removing the state-mandated pornography blocking software without paying the fee would be a crime.

Since congressional Democrats have made abundantly clear they will not fund President Donald Trump’s border wall, Republicans are becoming creative in figuring out how they might contribute to the project.

A state lawmaker in Arizona has proposed taxing online pornography to help get the job done.

Via FOX 10:

House Bill 2444 is proposed by State Rep. Gail Griffin. She represents District 14, a Southeastern Arizona district that covers all of Cochise and Greenlee Counties, along with southern portions of Graham County and eastern portions of Pima County.

According to the bill, products that make content accessible on the internet cannot be made, sold, leased, distributed or made in the state unless it contains blocking softwares that blocks obscene materials by default, should the bill be approved and signed into law.

Anyone who wants to view blocked material will have to request the software be removed by contacting the person or company who distributed the device, prove they are over 18 with photo ID, and pay a $20 (or more) fee to the Arizona Commerce Authority.

The fees will then go to a fund that will finance a number of initiatives via grants, including the building of a border wall between Mexico and Arizona, or fund border security.

The fund, according to the bill, will also provide grants to programs that prevent and protect victims of domestic trafficking. The bill will also make deactivating the blocker by other means a crime.

Just what her conservative constituents really need, another tax that will affect them more than anyone else.
