They always claim that they are looking out for the “Little guy” if that were the case they would be pushing to abolish all taxes with the exception of income tax. If they were truly Progressive (Hillery’s words)
The bottom line is that you do not see them call for the elimination of taxes other then income. Hell no just recently they more then doubled the cigarette tax. They have many studies showing that the majority of smokers are low to middle income. Now they want to push through the cap and trade tax. It is all about control and social engineering.
Now they want to tax your pop to pay for socialized medicine.
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.
The taxes would pay for only a fraction of the cost to expand health-insurance coverage to all Americans and would face strong opposition from the beverage industry. They also could spark a backlash from consumers who would have to pay several cents more for a soft drink.
Too many people have bought into the Bullshit that they are looking out for the little guy. WAKE UP AMERICA!
