Yes, let's just raise the price of food so that most people won't be able to afford it. Whatever happened to parenting and personal responsibility? Although, if we are going to have socialist healthcare, I'd like to see an excise tax on junk food and a tax for being a fatass when it comes time to file income taxes.
