The ladies of The View got fired up, as they so often do, over a sensitive issue: sin taxes.
These "sin taxes" are basically taxes on things like sugary soft drinks that are meant to discourage people from buying them.
The whole idea is that obese people tend to buy less healthy foods and their obesity racks up billions of dollars in healthcare.
Melissa Joan Hart was there as a guest host but barely got a word in because things started to get a little heated.
The main problem is that some of the more unhealthy foods are actually way cheaper than the healthy stuff.
So a family on a budget could really run into some trouble with these proposed taxes.
Check out the video (above) to hear the ladies of The View tackle sin taxes.

Maybe he should be leaving on the midnight train out of Georgia!
If the rapper who sang The World is Yours and If I Ruled the World wielded as much power as his lyrics suggested, taxes wouldn't be a concern!
Unfortunately for Nas, the world is NOT his and taxes are a concern!
The Georgia Department of Revenue says the musician owes the state over $1 million in back taxes, and they're garnishing his wages on his upcoming Live Nation tour to obtain them!!
Holy guacamole, that's mucho dinero!

You really only have to worry if you live in

Apparently porn doesn't pay as well as you'd think!
Octo-Mom is done touching herself for cameras, and is now
getting a real job begging for help to pay rent.

Jon Lovitz is PISSED at Barack Obama for wanting to increase taxes for the rich!
So pissed that the comedian and former Saturday Night Live star unloaded on the President of the United States during a comedy show at his El Lay club and it was all caught on tape!
We have to warn you though, it is VERY explicit. It's not quite up there with Tracy Morgan or Michael Richards' on stage ramblings, but there are quite a few F-bombs being dropped.
Listen to Jon's rant (above) at your own risk!
