Recently the Acton Institute pulled back the political camouflage of the Lifestyle Tax, a new tax under consideration by the Senate Finance Committee, and exposed it as an extension of the Sin Tax. The Senate Finance Committee is considering levying the Lifestyle Tax to raise funds for President Obama’s health care plan.
Reverend Robert A. Sirico, president and co-founder of the Acton Institute, wrote an article on the Sin Tax and the proposal of expanding it to tax soft drinks. You can read Rev. Sirico’s column in The American.
