After President Obama said he'd consider taxing soda to encourage healthier lifestyles, we felt inspired to ask: What items would you pay higher taxes on to ensure health care for all?
Your answers so far include cigarettes, junk food, fast food, beer, tobacco, sporting events, companies who "inhumanely raise animals for meat," firearms, processed foods, golf clubs, botox, personal jets and more.
Me? I'd heavily tax people who don't hold the door open, drivers that cut me off on the turnpike, and folks who talk during movies...but now we're starting to stray from the idea of sacrifice into the idea of punishment. And we know the IRS does not exist to punish people, right? Right?
