  1. On taxes/fees I think it would have to say exactly what the tax/fee is for. If people are paying it they need to know what the money is used for. On government fees that gives them a change to write their elected officials about it, and for an airline fee it gives them a chance to write the head of the company or head to Facebook and/or Twitter to get a media blast going.
