Thank the Lord!

Thank the Lord we have compassionate and caring "progressives" looking out for us! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

While Democrats await the results of bipartisan negotiations over health care reform in the Senate Finance Committee, one of the proposals put before the committee received a nod of approval from health officials today: taxing soda.

The committee -- the last congressional panel expected to produce its own recommendations for health care reform -- listened to arguments earlier this year both for and against imposing a three-cent tax on sodas as well as other sugary drinks, including energy and sports drinks like Gatorade.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that a three-cent tax would generate $24 billion over the next four years, and proponents of the tax argued before the committee that it would lower consumption of sugary drinks and improve Americans' overall health.

If only we could impose a stupid moron tax on all liberals we'd be able to eliminate the deficit and fund everything under the Sun!

It's not the three cents, folks; it's the never-ending paternalism and preaching from these liberal douchebags that pisses me off.

  • Shows you the idiocy of their liberal mindset: They want to tax it. But they also want to reduce consumption as a result of the tax. So essentially, with less sales, they receive less tax which makes the tax useless.

    Get ready for the special tax for smoking after sex, complete with mandatory surveillance cameras in every bedroom. Have a nice day.

  • heres an idea. Why dont we put cameras in the bedrooms and offices of the nutjobs who will vote for this and tax them every time we catch them sleeping around on their spouses? Do you think we would ever have to pay taxes again? I know i'm crazy but it's just a thought.
