Your next Kentucky sneeze may cost you

Kentucky's Senate Republicans passed a ridiculous Snot tax compromise bill that will require some people (not  many, they promise, and surely not you) to get a doctor's prescription before they can get all the allergy medicine they need.

They are already talking about needing to come back next year and to tighten the current restrictions so that even you will have to get a prescription.

Can't they just settle on letting Senator Stivers and Senator Williams travel around to WalMarts and yell at people who appear to have allergies? This bill doesn't change anything in terms of methamphetamine production and just encourages the nanny state inclinations of politicians with too much time on their hands.
