Well, that is going to need to be payed for by the users... So, because of Obama and the democrats concept of socialized healthcare... Tobacco is going to be ridiculously taxed if not banned. There's my logic.
I'll be waiting for the taxing of fast food chains....

Seriously guys, the bill has only been proposed. There are countless bills being proposed and never get passed.
There has been a bill that proposes the elimination of income, corporate, and sales tax, yet you can see where that landed.

Before everybody gets all wild about this, wait till it actually gets a little more serious than this.
