Update: Alert to the Country: They are coming for our soda- CALL CONGRESS NOW, SAY NO TO SODA TAX!!!

Update: Here is TOTUS pushing his soda TAX. Funny he didn’t give a frak about obese kids when MEchelle worked for Treehouse Foods now did he? courtesy American Spec:

In an interview with Men’s Health published Monday, President Obama suggested that a tax on such items as soda and sugary drinks should be put on the table, saying “I actually think it’s an idea that we should be exploring.”

Oh good, this means the kids juice boxes too. INSANITY!!! Did the WH miss the backlash Paterson got in NY when he tried this??

Obama then acknowledged the political reality of enacting such taxes while providing a glimpse of where he personally stands on the issue:  Look, people’s attitude is that they don’t necessarily want Big Brother telling them what to eat or drink, and I understand that. It is true, though, that if you wanted to make a big impact on people’s health in this country, reducing things like soda consumption would be helpful….

OMG, can’t we even have a damn Coca Cola!!! (or for my mom Pepsi!)

Are you listening OBOTS!! You drink RED BULL ALL DAY DON’T YOU???!!!

Now look what you have done!!!!

LEAVE MY SODA ALOOOONEEE!!!!!

    You are foolish…

    Have you seen the CDC’s statistics and trends on obesity the last 20 years?

    Our diet is literally killing Americans. Taxing soda to fund health care has 2 benefits: It raises money for health care, decreases soda consumption thereby decreasing the obesity and diabetes.

    I find your entry without logic
