I think they should do the one of the sodas, possibly even fast food. That one they call the "fat" tax.

you gotta be crazy if you think this is really going towards healthcare....

this is the first step towards paying for all those bailouts....

next, they'll tax alcohol, then it'll be some other ****, and noone will care cuz we're talking about smokers and drinkers here....

we'll go through a few of these "special" taxes, then it'll make its way towards your paycheck.

i voted for obama, by the way.
