Say hello to soda taxes and bagel taxes and ice cream, cheeseburger, and lard taxes
Govzilla will not stop.
Great news for the people of NYC. Sucks to be an American though.
One clueless idiot for another clueless idiot.

What exactly did Bloomberg do right in NYC?
Please list his accomplishment(s), besides he is wealthy (which means he may or may not cheat on his tax return).
This explains why he has been attacking the Tea Party and cozying up to the muzzies.
He’s leaving NYC??? For a two-year stint in DC?
The stupidest billionaire meets the stupidest president....makes sense.
He’s going to use Bloomberg to bring NYC style tax hikes to the Federal government and use a ‘businessman’ to sell them.
