I told you so…

First, they came for my cars, then for my cigarettes and cigars, then…

New taxes, deep cuts to education and health care, and a restructuring of the state’s economic development programs will be hallmarks of [New York] Gov. David Paterson’s first budget plan to be released in two days, according to interviews of people briefed on components.
The plan will come with a host of revenue raisers — increased taxes on hospitals and insurance policies, for instance — and at least one new assessment, a so-called obesity tax on non-diet soda to raise $404 million. The governor also is contemplating requiring new license plates to raise cash, reviving sales tax on clothing purchases, removing the tax cap on gasoline and threatening to require Indian retailers to collect taxes on sales to non-Indians by signing into law a bill passed earlier this year by the Legislature.

    You’re right, expulsion of methane into the atmosphere by homosapiens may be next on the list.
