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.
