Within the healthcare bill that will pass tomorrow, is a new 10% tax on sun tanning to help finance the new healthcare reform bill.
Do not for one second think it will stop there.
Anything that might affect your health will be taxed to provide the money to support universal healthcare. The distance between taxing suntans to taxing fast food is a short one.
Don’t believe me? It’s already happening, “Soda is clearly one of the most harmful products in the food supply, and it’s something government should discourage the consumption of” said Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
Think of how many other things you eat that you probably shouldn’t that the government will tax to “discourage the consumption of.” The list is long.
According to the WSJ article…
“The beverage tax is just one of hundreds of ideas that lawmakers are weighing to finance the health-care plans. Senate leaders are considering new federal taxes on soda and other sugary drinks to help pay for an overhaul of the nation’s health-care system.”
Come tomorrow, the American people will unleash the power of our government to oversee and meddle in our daily lives like never before in the history of this country.
If we do not fight it, we deserve it.
