It's just another illegal tax from a Federal Government never given the legal power to tax except in time of war so it wouldn't grow to be the all intrusive powerful and invasive thing that can tax you on every little thing you do and regulate every little thing you do and attempt to try to control every little thing you do.

It's a very small tax if it's only in the 5 to 10 cent range.~Keeper

Now for you erasurehead, you can not be more wrong, obviously you have not been around my post and thread a lot a "government butt kisser I am not.
But taking into consideration that now we may have a new health care reform that will force us into paying for insurance premiums regarless what we want or not, you bet your butt that I am going to be for anything that is taxable that has to do with life choices if I have the time to take care of myself and stay away from what is considered unhealthy to my body why can not you too
If I am to pay for your health care you better take care of yourself and what you put in your body.
