The liberal powers that be that currently control our city govt are considering a "junk food tax" to encourage people to make healthier food choices. IMO, what they really want is a source of additional income to fund some of their pet projects, like removing certain statues from our park at an outrageous cost and buying modern art work to decorate our city with, or buying exorbitantly priced "Portland Pottys" instead of fixing the darn potholes and installing much needed sidewalks in some neighborhoods. again IMO, the govt needs to stay out of peoples' private lives. You cannot make people eat better if it isn't their choice. I don't eat junk food very much any more, but if and when I choose to splurge, I don't think I should have to pay extra for it. I think I've already paid an adequate price for my junk food days.
