Gee, I wonder why?

I'm going on a trip in January, about which I got a notice from the company:
[There is] a new Department of Transportation policy that goes into effect in 2012. It requires that government taxes and fees be reflected directly in air fare prices—instead of being listed separately and added to a trip price.

The correct word, by the way, is buried.

Yet so many will tell us that there's no real opposition to additional taxes, that's just a crazy GOP talking point.

It is interesting that a government agency can force a company to bury the taxes.

I wonder what would happen if the company instead gave the DOT the single digit salute and continued to break them out?

It is times like this, and many others, I wish I was a successful entrepreneur.
