The health care bill upon it’s passing will only provide the government further authority to regulate what you can and cannot eat/drink. Once this bill is passed don’t be surprised to find the government telling you: “if you eat this no healthcare, if you drink this no health care.” Since they will be in charge, if you don’t follow their rules you don’t get shit. You’ll still have to pay the taxes to support health care bullshit but you wont get anything in return.
Here’s a prime example of the tip toe walk to that all powerful government monitoring your diet world we are headed to. Things always start off slow and build up over time. Its like a frog in a pot. If you boil some water and throw the frog in, it’ll jump right out. But if you put the frog in the water then start boil the water, the frog will be unable to register the difference until its too late.
Here we have an article about a new tax on soda pop. Keep in mind the health care bill is still not passed yet but they are already talking about taxing soda pop because its bad for our health. Tip toe, tip toe, can you see what comes next? First submit legislation to control a nations health, then put new taxes on foods, and the final step saying all together what you can and cant eat. And who’s gonna stop ’em? Most of America is too fat, complacent, and ignorant to the world around them. Wake up people!
Now for the article:
