In a strange follow-up to his State of the Union Address President Obama has announced a surcharge on the incomes of National Hockey League goalies. The President claims that it is only fair that goalies pay more as they are part of the”haves” of society. When asked about the new tax, White House mouth piece Jay Carney denied that it had anything to do with Bruins goalie Tim Thomas’ refusal to attend a ceremony with the President.
