Governor Paterson Is Tripping.


The recession is hitting everyone, even people who actually buy albums.
Trying to close a $15.4 billion budget gap, Paterson called for 88 new fees and a host of other taxes, including an "iPod tax" that taxes the sale of downloaded music and other "digitally delivered entertainment services."

"We're going to have to take some extreme measures," Paterson said Tuesday after unveiling the slash-and-burn budget.

Well i think this is horrible to raise taxes on music. The one thing that we need in times like this.
