I personally believe that any lawmaker that proposes a new tax, should be impeached and deported.
Considering the size of our federal budget, and how much we all pay in taxes, any conversation of something other than a tax CUT or ELIMINATION is obscene.
Want to put a dent in all the fatties? Offer a tax break or elimination for parents whose children have an appropriate BMI. Processed crap is tasty, that’s why it sells. It’s also expensive – your average “value meal” costs upwards of $6. For $6 you could buy a pound of ham and a loaf of bread, and eat lunch for a week.
I do that and save about $150-$200 per month, not to mention I’m not pumping my body full of crap. If the government offered to cut my taxes for staying healthy?
