food taxes are wrongful thinking
Taxing junk food may be a quick and crowd pleasing way to deal with the problem of obesity, but from where I sit, the problem is caused by two main issues: the reduction and elimination of Physical Education from many elementary schools across the country, along with the lack of summer activity programs for children; and the fact that for many people on Food Stamps, it is cheaper to eat poorly than to eat healthier food. If all the health conscious food do-gooders could just live on a monthly budget of about $200 a month for a family of three, depending on your monthly income, and tell me how to do it without eating a lot of boxed foods, let them do it!
