Fat Heads Support Fat Tax

I was going to go ahead and rant on this, but I don't really need to.

A story out of Indianapolis cites a study that says a "fat tax" could help curb obesity. Who did the study nor the name of the study is cited, just "a study." Now that's good journalism!

The story uses alcohol and tobacco taxes as a reason to tax fatty foods. The other taxes reduced use of those sin products which theoretically means it could work for fatty foods. A 20% tax is recommended in the article. Not kidding. 20%!

So why am I not going to rant? Go read the article and the comments. You can see all the ranting that needs to be done is in the comments. I don't how the journalist found someone to support this tax, but the readers are pissed!
