It has been a long time since I have given out an RSCCM Award but Antonio Tajani, the European Union's Commissioner for Enterprise and Industry, is certainly deserving.
Commissioner Tajani seems to think that vacationing is now a human right. Because it is a right, everyone should get to do it even if they can't afford it. I think you're smart enough to figure out who will be paying for those vacations.
"Travelling for tourism today is a right. The way we spend our holidays is a formidable indicator of our quality of life," Mr. Tajani told a group of ministers at The European Tourism Stakeholders Conference in Madrid on April 15.
There is at least one sane person still left in Europe.
"The commission is literally considering paying people to go on holiday," Mats Persson, of pro-reform think-tank Open Europe, told Britain's News of the World. "In this economic climate, it's astonishing that the EU wants to bribe people with cheap holidays."
PAY ATTENTION: You can bet the liberals in the U.S. Congress are watching this develop. More giveaways, more votes. That's how the liberals work. That's why they busted their rears to pass Obamacare. 30 million new votes.
