Beer tax on tap for health care?

My elected cockroach from Montana is jumping right in with both feet, legs and ass. Yippee!!

From The Bellingham Herald:

Lawmakers are looking at an extensive list of spending cuts and tax increases, including a new levy on the value of job-based health insurance. The latter proposal seems to be gaining ground. It could lead to higher income taxes for some people with particularly generous job-based health care.

Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., said no decisions were made, but he will use the feedback to shape legislation he intends to introduce in the next few weeks. The committee has a critical role to play in the health care overhaul, since it writes tax law and oversees the government's giant medical insurance programs. Baucus wants to write a bipartisan bill, a goal for President Barack Obama.


I just blogged on all the "sin" taxes we already pay. If you read on you will see that there is no end to what they are proposing to tax. Nooooo, endddd.....
