Regressive Taxation

One of my pet peeves is regressive taxation. The far left forgets or does not care if their quest for gasoline taxes hurts rural folk. They also do not care that taxes on cigarettes and beer impact working folk.

Does anyone want to live in a nanny state. Maybe I am old fashioned, but I want government out of my refrigerator and out of my lunch box.

I am still a moderate, but there is something evil about a state that wants to tax Mountain Dew, Budwieser
and probably coming soon Doritos.

It is a sad era where one needs a second job to go to ball game and have a beer.

What is with this gas tax fetish. Has anyone forgotten rural folks have to drive and operate farm equipment. Maybe the way to rebuild
the economy is to start drilling for oil and building refineries and power plants.

These taxes on vices really piss me off.

I thought that the left didn't want to "legislate morality."
