    Default The 'Beverage Tax":

    How many of you think this will actually happen. I absolutely do. Especially when the man with three muslim names (obama) is our president. I don't think you can stop this man and his people from adding taxes. Of course they will find something that sounds good as a reason to push it on us. He would not have thrown it out there if he did not plan on it. Wait and see. They will get the tax money and spend it on something other than they said it was for.

    Well, once the government controls health care, they can argue that just about anything they do is "for the public welfare."

    Soda tax? It's to control diabetes.
    Junk food tax? It's to control obesity.

    Do you see your freedoms slipping away? It's a slippery slope. All we can do is vote in November.

    If they are going to pass a law, they need to pass one where everyone must have a sign on their bedroom door that reads, "You live in a free country. That means you have the freedom to screw up your own life if you see fit. You have the ability to make your own decisions. You do not have the right to place blame or make excuses. Welcome to America! Time to start your day. Your choices ultimate determine how you end it."

    Katherine Mangu-Ward -- Five Myths About Sin Taxes on Soda - washingtonpost.com

    I personally don't see a soda tax happening any time soon.

    Coke & Pepsi=Big companies
    Big Companies-Big lobbyists
    Big Lobbyists=the ability to kill legislation you don't like.


    That's life folks.
