      Vioxx cased heart attacks. Who knows what other crap with nasty side effects has gotten through this FDA.

      ....instead of fancying ourselves the lifestyle police capable of taxing the working class' "naughty habits" out of existence, why don't we impose a PROGRESSIVE tax to finance the SCHIP expansion?  Novel thought coming from "the party of the working person" I know, but it just might keep us from looking like predatory hypocrites.

    •  What does lung cancer have to do with SCHIPS? (0+ / 0-)

      I've personally known many people who have died from lung cancer that did not even smoke. You can make an argument about the negative impact on society of: cellular phones as they cause as many vehicular deaths each year as alcohol, junk food and obescity related deaths, and look at all of the recalled prescription drugs by the FDA that were proven to be unsafe, even fatal.
