Update: Alert to the Country: They are coming for our soda- CALL CONGRESS NOW, SAY NO TO SODA TAX!!!

Update: Here is TOTUS pushing his soda TAX. Funny he didn’t give a frak about obese kids when MEchelle worked for Treehouse Foods now did he? courtesy American Spec:

In an interview with Men’s Health published Monday, President Obama suggested that a tax on such items as soda and sugary drinks should be put on the table, saying “I actually think it’s an idea that we should be exploring.”

Oh good, this means the kids juice boxes too. INSANITY!!! Did the WH miss the backlash Paterson got in NY when he tried this??

Obama then acknowledged the political reality of enacting such taxes while providing a glimpse of where he personally stands on the issue:  Look, people’s attitude is that they don’t necessarily want Big Brother telling them what to eat or drink, and I understand that. It is true, though, that if you wanted to make a big impact on people’s health in this country, reducing things like soda consumption would be helpful….

OMG, can’t we even have a damn Coca Cola!!! (or for my mom Pepsi!)

Are you listening OBOTS!! You drink RED BULL ALL DAY DON’T YOU???!!!

Now look what you have done!!!!

LEAVE MY SODA ALOOOONEEE!!!!!

Breaking on FOX: President calls for soda tax to fund health care bill, Rep Jeb Hensarling R-TX objecting on Cavuto (Stu Varney filling in) on FOX now…

Taxes, taxes everywhere, and not a drop to drink: Soda/Sugary Drink Tax Raises it’s Ugly Head Again, This Time at the Federal Level…

They can take our land but they’ll never take OUR COLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LEAVE MY COKE CLASSIC ALOOOOONE!!!!!! DAMMIT!! And my KO shares will fall on this if it happens! I was assured TOTUS and MEchelle were COKE drinkers and after NY Gov Paterson’s EPIC FAIL on this asinine proposal I am purely disgusted to see it yet again…

Here’s an idea, how about we leave Americans and their sugary drinks alone and instead we STOP FRAKKIN SPENDING!!!

Big Dawg helped get the sugary drinks out of a lot of schools which I agree with totally, MEchelle had a board seat at Treehouse Foods which makes all the damn sugary snacks making the kids obese …pfft!!!!

Listen Critters, a word of advice, stay the hexx away from my Coke Classic! It is the BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS I TELL YOU!!!!

WSJ:

..Senate leaders are considering new federal taxes on soda and other sugary drinks to help pay for an overhaul of the nation’s health-care system.

The taxes would pay for only a fraction of the cost to expand health-insurance coverage to all Americans and would face strong opposition from the beverage industry. They also could spark a backlash from consumers who would have to pay several cents more for a soft drink.

On Tuesday, the Senate Finance Committee is set to hear proposals from about a dozen experts about how to pay for the comprehensive health-care overhaul that President Barack Obama wants to enact this year. Early estimates put the cost of the plan at around $1.2 trillion. The administration has so far only earmarked funds for about half of that amount.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a Washington-based watchdog group that pressures food companies to make healthier products, plans to propose a federal excise tax on soda, certain fruit drinks, energy drinks, sports drinks and ready-to-drink teas. It would not include most diet beverages. Excise taxes are levied on goods and manufacturers typically pass them on to consumers.

Senior staff members for some Democratic senators at the center of the effort to craft health-care legislation are weighing the idea behind closed doors, Senate aides said….
