2020 Dem hopeful Michael Bloomberg once said taxing poor people would make them live longer

Democrats love big government and they love to tax people in order to support big government.

But did you know that taxing people -- especially the working poor -- will ensure they lead a longer life?

Once upon a time, former NYC Mayor Michael "Ban the Big Gulp" Bloomberg actually tried to justify such a goofy policy through the imposition of a bigger nanny state.

Is it a position that will win him voters? Dubious at best. 

Taxes in general aren't the most popular thing with Americans, but advocating new taxes on citizens who are least able to afford them doesn't sound like a political winner.

For any reason!
