Quote of the day

From David Harsanyi:

But once we start rationing health care, externalities will only become more of an issue. If we collectively pay for health insurance, then what is to stop the majority of us from dictating to the minority what it can eat or drink?

What would stop Republicans — after they roar back to power in 2048 — from levying sin taxes on promiscuous behavior? After all, promiscuity burdens all taxpayers through sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies and Lindsay Lohan.

(Actually, you should go read the article.  You know that your congresscritters are studying the political feasibility of taxing soft drinks, right?)
