We get results? USDA officially cancels Chritmas Tree ad tax

A federal program almost paid for their advertising.

Christmas will be a little merrier this year.

In a ruling just released in today‘s (November 17) Federal Register, the US Department of Agriculture officially rescinded the 15¢-per-tree tax on natural Christmas trees and aborted the federal Christmas Tree Promotion Board which would have burnt up tax dollars collecting and administering it.

I wish I could say it was the power of this blog,or this article.

But a little help from ABC News, the Chicago Tribune, consumerist.com, csmonitor.com, Fox Business, Fox News, the Heritage Foundation, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, snopes.com, and Time magazine didn’t hurt.
