Tax the Twinkies!!!

Research now shows that it could reduce obesity rates:

Here's my idea, let's have a Twinkie Tax to subsidize health care. What do you all think?


  1. Why not? We tax cigarettes (and subsidize tobacco growers, but...). We tax gas to help subsidize taking care of roads.

  2. Perfect! How do we get started?

    Really, healthier, whole foods aren't THAT expensive here in the States compared to other countries, it's just that junk food is SO cheap that it makes other real foods look more expensive. If a Twinkie and a banana were the same price, would people chose the banana?
