The Obsolete Cartel Tax

Some French lawmakers are currently batting around an idea for a tax on internet service providers to subsidize the printed press.

My first idea was to compare this to a tax on newborns to subsidize retirees but of course it already exists, it’s called public sector debt. So I tried to come up with better comparisons: a tax on maternity hospitals to subsidize funeral homes? A tax on jogging to subsidize cigarettes? A tax on vegetables to subsidize McDonald’s?

Come on, help me out here.
