The Board of Supervisors in Orange County, CA voted 4-1 to add a healthcare fee to all traffic tickets written by Sheriff's deputies.

This means if you get busted for speeding, running a red light, having noisy pipes, or looking too imitidating, you'll have to pay extra so that county-funded hospitals and clinics can service the ever-growing public dole.

Steven Greenhut, who writes the Orange Punch Blog, sums up the sorry state of affairs pretty well...
This is a tax increase, and it's wrong to make government more dependent on tickets. That only increases the tendency of police and police agencies to behave primarily as revenuers. In LA cops play games to see who can arrest the most people and write the most tickets and in OC, deputies will be encouraged to hand out more tickets in order to increase funding for government services.
It's gonna get worse folks.

Liberals in California are pushing Schwarzenegger to sign into a law new public health insurance program, which Arnold has already agreed to sign. Hillary, Obama, and Edwards want a federal socialized medicine program.

I guess they'll have to hire more cops to pay for it all.
