Hungary Introduces National Tax On Fatty Foods | Care2 Causes

People always complain about too much government control, but gladly give away tax bene's to billionaires. I don't get it. If we are paying a tax on fattening, fatty, foods, that should go into a coffer that pays for the damage these foods do. If people are determined to avoid greens and high fibers in favor of processed foods, if not $.05 then maybe $.02 tax per fatty food purchase? Did anyone not get the memo that Americans are the fattest people on earth? We are the fat mecca, provide the fat food blueprint for the world, and the rest of the world, like us, becomes addicted to added fats, salts, over-processed, nutritionally bleached foods! We all pay for the damage done, maybe now we can have it subsidize itself. Oh, wait. Hungary is the one taking responsibility. Gotcha.
