#1...I think the name 'fat tax' is just disgusting--like being overweight isn't already bad enough. We are one of the few groups that it is openly acceptable to discriminate against.
I didn't get fat sucking down soda. I can thank pork chops, mashed potatoes and all that 'good food'.
We already pay sales tax on soda.
I don't believe that we should pay more taxes, because the government chooses to overspend.
We will not get healthier because of a tax hike. That has been proven by the cigarette taxes. Also did high gas prices stop us from driving our cars? No.
Where would it end? What would be taxed next? Movies, Computers, TVs, Cars, gaming systems, cell phones, video games and then food-- it's scary!
There would be no end.
The governor should just tighten his belt and say no to some of the ridiculous spending that he approves. Aren't they shooting themselves in the foot w/ a struggling economy adding more taxes? ... that definitely does not make me want to go out and spend more money.
