And so it begins


Do you like tanning? 10% higher now because your behavior could lead to melanoma. Your bad behavior will be taxed.

McDonalds released an estimate of what it will cost for each one of their stores to put the nutrition information on every outdoor and indoor menu. $75,000.00 per store.

Have you heard of Darden? They own Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and other restaurants. Today -
NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Darden Restaurants Inc. (DRI) will try to absorb any new costs from the health care legislation through tighter expense management and higher prices.

"We feel pretty confident about our ability to really respond through some combination of cost management and price increases," Darden's Chairman and Chief Executive Clarence Otis said Wednesday on an earnings call.

Oh, and how much money will banks lose when the government takes over all the student loan business? The free market shouldn't make money off kids going to school. Only the government should do that!

Just ask Kathleen Sebelius who brags that the legislation will result in companies that make life-saving drugs halarge_Barack-Obama-kiss-Kathleen-Sebelius-Jan29-09ving their profits reduced by $90 Billion. And we are supposed to cheer that - because the government sees no danger in shoving a very important industry into the ground. Cause y'know, I'm sure all that research and stuff isn't that expensive. All those profits are probably going into some fat cats pockets.

In days to come all the little things that have nothing to do with actual health and more to do with "controlling the people" and taxes every little thing we do to pay for the healthcare bill that congress and the president and his family are exempt from - will come crawling out. Can't wait.
