Why I Hate the Government

It would be Un-American to raise taxes on this
If you make big bucks — or enjoy alcohol, cigarettes and Coke — the government might hit you up to pay for fixing the nation’s health care system.

On Tuesday, the Senate Finance Committee peeked into vending machines and liquor stores, company payrolls and health savings accounts, looking for a mix of tax increases and spending cuts as a way to pay for a health overhaul — which could cost more than $1.5 trillion over 10 years.

So, the government decides to spend enormous, unaffordable amounts on socialized health care first, then tries to come up with ways to pay for it after. Doesn't this sound like the cause for this financial crisis? Irresponsible people buying things first, then worrying about ways to pay for it after? Unfortunately for taxpayers, our elected officials are at their very best in finding new ways to burden us with new ways to pay for their goodies!
