When I first read this, I thought he was a Democrat

But Illinois state Sen. Shane Cultra, R-Onarga needs to turn in his Republican card at the first party office he can find. Or, the Republicans should revoke his membership for something so stupid as to tax parents of fat kids.

"It's the parents' responsibility that have obese kids," said state Sen. Shane Cultra, R-Onarga. "Take the tax deduction away for parents that have obese kids."

Cultra has not introduced legislation to deny parents the $2,000 standard tax deduction, but he floated the idea Tuesday, when lawmakers took a shot at solving the state's obesity epidemic.

Ohh, it's 'for the children!', well that makes it all better. Because I first thought that it had something to do with the states HUGE tax shortfall instead of a bunch of semi-literate fat kids.
