New tax idea

Most politicians seem to never meet a tax they don't like. One of the new ideas in the House Ways and Means Committee to fund government-run health care is a 10 cent tax on a can of soda pop (coke, soft drink, etc.). Perhaps they should check with the President.

Recently President Obama said that no family earning less than $250,000 would see its taxes increased by "a single dime." Anybody out there earning less than $250,000? Any of you ever drink a cold soda? If so, so much for that no new taxes plan. You will see an increase.

Coke is already too's the inconsistencies that are the most troubling.
Health care does need reform, but I'm fearful of the gov't. running it.....right into the ground.

There is no doubt that the health care system in the US needs reform. The doctors and insurance companies probably wouldn't be a good choice to reform it, but turning it over to the government is scraping the bottom of the barrel for the worst possible scenario.
