All free, of course, with no increase in premiums.
Particularly if VAT is next, bartering will be huge.
You are thinking from the perspective that the party currently controlling our nation actually cares about the health, safety and well-being of the citizens.

Wasn't there some stink about home gardens not long ago and them having to follow regulations or taxes or something? If not, then it's just around the corner. That home garden might have to be mushrooms in the basement away from prying eyes. Gee, and y'all thought grow lights were only for those creepy dudes down the block. Times, they are a-changin'.
I wish palin had a tanning bed web cam id pay good money for that

It's a way to tax Whitey without mentioning white people.
Almost all of FDR's New Deal taxation was on the backs of the poor, all the while claiming he was helping the poor.
This is SPECIFICALLY a tax on WHITE PEOPLE ONLY!
They need to hide their discrimination a little better!
Jobs schmobs. Who cares about jobs? Our esteemed preZident sure doesn’t. Relax all. No worries.
