Bernie’s Beef: He’ll Tax Meat

Are you feeling the Bern? If not, you will after reading this latest idea Social Sanders has come up with.

You know that he doesn’t feel you’re taxed enough. He and his fellow Dems won’t be happy til they take a good 80% of our incomes. Yes, it will be you, not the rich guys as they have ways of escaping taxes by putting monies outside of Uncle Sam’s reach.

Aside from everything else Sanders can get his hands on, now he wants to tax meat. You go to get a Big Mac and they’ll be a Big Tax on it. Want to grill a steak? Your wallet will be in flames after the beef tax you’ll pay. Chicken? It will have taxes slapped on it, too, whether at Kroger or at Chick-fil-A.

The topic came up Thursday in a campaign stop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A woman asked, “So as you probably know animal agriculture is to blame for the majority of climate change and is the leading cause of deforestation water and air pollution and biodiversity loss with that being known what do you plan on doing to ensure that Americans limit their consumption of animal products?
“Second part,” she continued, “Germany has imposed a ‘meat tax’ in hopes of limiting this consumption. What are your plans to stop these large corporations from further usurping natural resources and polluting the planet?”

Sanders said, “Thank you for the question and it’s a good question all I can say is if we believe as I do and you do that climate change is real we’re gonna have to tackle it in every single area including agriculture, okay?
“And in fact, one of the things we want to do with our farmers out there is help them become more aggressive.” he continued, “and able to help us combat climate change rather than contribute to it. So we will certainly… you’re right we got to look at agriculture. We’ve got to look at every cause of the crisis that we face.”

What next? Ice cream? Yogurt? They also come from cows.

If anything, his response indicates that the Left uses the make believe climate change to accomplish all the restrictions they would want to put on Americans.

Most of us – thankfully – will have a beef with that.
