The totalitarian arm of the ever-growing government appears to know no limit. In today’s “oh no they didn’t” moment, the US Government’s diet panel has dictated proposed one more oppression of American’s freedom to choose:

*GOV’T PANEL PROPOSES SUGARY-FOOD TAX TO FUND NUTRITION PROGRAMS, CURB OBESITY

On the bright side, the government approves of “lean meat” as compatible with healthy eating. The bill, introduced by Rep. Juan Candelaria, D-New Haven, would impose a tax of 1 cent per ounce on soft drinks – including sweetened teas, energy drinks and soda – and candies that are high in sugar and calories. So, expensive non-refined foods are good? And the poorist people – who can’t afford to eat the way the government dictates – will pay all the taxes?

    1)Force obamacare on the people,
    2)Force the people to eat unhealthy foods!
    3)Raise taxes to pay for the increased cost of obamacare,
    4)Raise taxes more on healthy food so people eat more unhealthy food!
    5)goto 3

    Seems almost like a circle – no beginning and no end!
