Well neither here nor there thingy,

NY I believe just enacted a (sin tax) on soda beverages in an effort to get people to eat healthy - Meanwhile the Fed welfare system has enacted a (no snack food) to be charged on the Fed debit card. Most if not all states don't sales tax drug prescriptions. So this selected grouping has been around for awhile now and is already in place in some states.

Bottom line;
No matter how the selected field to be fair is chosen = Both sides, rich or poor will pay back whatever savings from a no payroll tax ban by the end of that year.

fwiw;
Our sales tax is 4.125% - no sales tax on drugs and other medical services. To be honest why not just make it 5% - I don't see how ya can cut a penny 0.125% , , WTF ?
