Under the Obama Plan, 95% of Americans will receive a tax cut, except for the ones who drink soda.
Hey…what about sweet tea…THE ONE is leaving out about 1/4 of the country on this soda tax….excellant for southerners
- Taxing employer-provided health insurance benefits above certain levels – a less likely option but one that still is in the running.
That should be “95% of all Americans, except for the ones who drink soda or get health insurance through work.”
So much for the 7-up then. Just have to drink the vodka straight.
I smoke, drink soda, have health insurance through work, and use a work phone for personal use. I’m really spreading my wealth around.
Make your own, people – moonshine your soda pop! (Admittedly you’ll probably have to work on the cola recipe. I have no idea how to make cola taste like cola. But root beer or sarsaparilla? Easy! And think of the flavor possibilities!) You can still buy carbon dioxide cylinders, right? And mini-kegs?
Which reminds me… time to order more beer ingredients. Summer is here, time’s a-wasting, the last batch is a third of the way gone.
Does that include diet soda ?
Under the Obama Plan, 95% of Americans will receive a tax cut, except for the ones who drink water.
Congress needs to review their history somewhat more closely; this country was founded on a revolution that was precipitated by the continual raising of taxes by a government that viewed the citizenry as a revenue source.
What next? Taxing cookies, cakes, pies and ice cream? They all have sugar in them, after all. And what about salty foods like potato chips, pretzels, peanuts, etc.? Salt’s bad for you, too. And what about red meat? Bad for you.
In the end, it’s going to look like the society in “Demolition Man,” where all things that are bad for you will be forbidden, or just taxed into oblivion. A tax on soft drinks is just the camel’s nose under the edge of the tent. The social engineers are just getting started with their grand plan to make the New Soviet American Man.
Under the Obama Plan, 95% of Americans will receive a tax cut, except for the ones who emit CO2.
Food the new sin tax base. Soon a fast food surcharge – the McTax.
When America voted for Change – I wonder if they knew that was all they would have in their retirement programs? Wife and I sat out the 2008 elections due to our misplaced notion of “teaching” the GOP a lesson.
Looks like we are the ones doing the learning
In California, we already have a fast food surcharge Yours is coming soon.
The only one I voted for the past election was for Sarah Palin. Basically because she’s actually had a real job (not to discount McCain’s service to his country, but I generally distrust life long senators).
Dude. It’s a carbon sin. I mean like these corporations actually make carbon dioxide that’s heating up the planet to make that fizz. Try something that’s carbon-neutral, like smoking pot.
There’s always fizzies and Kool-Aid.
The government should not be allowed to discriminate in its treatment of businesses, industries, eminent domain, etc. There shouldn’t be different levels of taxes depending on politician’s whims and special interests.
Hey, fat people are running up healthcare costs. Pay up, fatties.
Those of us who don’t over consume soda won’t even notice this.
