Health Taxes

Today’s New York Times has an article about financing the various health care proposals. Most of the plans would cost a lot of money and one option for covering costs is to “increase taxes on cigarettes and non-diet soft drinks.”

I have written about this before but it is obvious that when considering health care reform, legislators will tun to products that they feel increase the cost of health care to help pay. The question remains whether they will decide alcoholic beverages are unhealthy enough to generate increased taxes as well.
