Oregon voters just like more taxes

Newmark's Door:

A couple of cities have initiated soft drink taxes. The professed rationale? Well, sugar is just so, so bad for you. It rots your teeth and makes you fat. It's a public health issue, don't you know? Well, Seattle's city government has just qualified that rationale a bit: "Soda Tax Will Include Diet Products Because Equity, Say Mayor and Councilmembers".

This is part of Victor Hanson's article on liars in the progressive community.

The issue for Oregonians is that they tax themselves because they want to give more money to government.  Just say that, Oregonians, you like to tax yourselves and your politicians carry out your wish.
