barack really wants to offend US friends and empower US enemies. Like Canadian grits he hasn't seen a tax yet that he doesn't like. Is this even legal under NAFTA? One of my friends says this is just the beginning, bo will start charging "fees"(taxes) on americans entering or leaving the US. He calls a TSA grope tax.

TORONTO - President Barack Obama is floating the idea of charging a fee for every Canadian entering the U.S. by air or sea.
The proposal is outlined in the 2012 federal draft budget he submitted to Congress on Monday.
The $5.50 fee would not apply to visitors arriving in private vehicles.
Visitors from Canada, Mexico and a number of Caribbean countries are currently exempt from "passenger inspection fees."
