Not that anyone would ever look to Ian Millhiser for policy guidance, but that doesn’t make his insanity not worth spotlighting.
And today, he’s pulling out all the stops:
Congress should increase the income tax rate on taxpayers who are unvaccinated, and who have no legitimate religious or medical reason to be unvaccinated, to 99 percent.
This could be done through reconciliation.

Hey, why not just confiscate their belongings?

Welcome back, Milhouse! Glad you're still a fascist. https://t.co/Hy9UCSwwb8

Not just a fascist, but a racist:
Ugh, he knows this would tax Black and Hispanic people at in disproportionate way, right? https://t.co/F0mcLvEmUA

This tax would disproportionately hit minorities https://t.co/aEhEtcw6TF

So, you want to tax black and brown people disproportionally more?
— EJ (@Ejmiller25) July 29, 2021
Perfect. Since vaccination rates are pretty low among black and hispanic people, you can use the tax as another example of systemic racism down the road.

So you want to disproportionately tax black, brown, and other POCs at a higher rate? Racist. https://t.co/hz2zKkHPes

Ian wants to tax POCs disproportionately. That seems a tad racist. https://t.co/m2ysxhzC0t

Just a tad, Ian.
Yeah, you go into the mostly minority neighborhoods where they won’t get vaccinated and explain your rationale.

And be sure to take someone with you to record the whole thing! We’re dying to see what will happen.
Vox correspondents should be sent to Gitmo.
This can be done through reconciliation.
