Back in June, I wrote about a dumb bill called the "Travel Promotion Act of 2009."

This piece of dirt bill would create a $400 million slush fund controlled by the tourism industry to encourage foreign tourists to travel to the U.S. This public-private fund, which Senator Jim DeMint calls "Fannie Travel," would be financed with a $10 tax on foreigner travelers.

Put another way, this bill wants to encourage foreigners to come to the U.S. by taxing them!

For more information, here's DeMint's op-ed on the subject.
