To encourage healthy eating, should higher taxes be imposed on soft drinks and junk food?

  • I like taxes

    I think taxes are good, they are good because they are good, and because they are good we need more of them. We need more of them because they are good. The American people enjoy taxes, like me. I think they are always good for everything. I LOVE TAXES SO MUCH.

  • Higher Taxes on Junk Food Lower Prices on Fresh Produce

    Simple, if it isn't naturally grown, if its processed and packed with chemicals and sugars and fats then the taxes should be higher on it. Fresh fruits and veggies that are naturally grown, and healthy should come with a lower price tag. By doing this people will be drawn to buying fresh healthy produce, currently it's too expensive and that is why people tend to go buy the junk food and soft drinks cause sadly enough its cheaper, you don't have to cut it, clean it, cook it or what ever! You simply open the bag, crack open the can and let the fat into your body! Where as if it were the fresh produce was cheaper it would allow people on low income living paycheck to paycheck to be able to afford amazing great food

  • Higher taxes should be put on junk foods and soft drinks.

    Higher taxes should be put on junk foods and soft drinks because when unhealthy foods are more expensive to purchase, fewer people will buy them. When fewer people buy them, then those people stay healthier because they are not consuming the fats, carbohydrates, sugars, and grease that can cause bad health and obesity in people.

  • Duh! It's Simple

    160,000 fast food restaurants in America and 50 million Americans are served daily. This shows that Americans are really obese. One way to solve this problem is to impose taxes on soft drinks and junk food. After knowing this you probably shouldn't go eat and drink and eat soft drinks and fast food daily. Maybe shorten the times you go to do that.

  • Yea, be positive

    If you cant control your kids' eating choices and your ugly fat paunch, imposed taxes on junk food and soft drinks will help you. When healthy food become cheaper than junk food, people will start change their eating choices. Whatever were the negatives of that, the positives are much more.

  • I like it

    It will lessen obesity chances. 1 of every 4 people are obese. When you think about it, that's a lot of people! With higher taxes, less people will buy these sugary causes of obesity and we'll have less overweight people. Sugar and fattening foods and soda are main causes of obesity. I am sure that if there are higher taxes on junk food, I will less likely want to buy that Hershey bar I want!

  • People Won't be Tempted that Easily!

    ∽If we do raise the prices, people won’t give in that easily to the dollar of candy they want! Dr. Mitchell H. Katz and Dr. Rajiv Bhatia of the San Francisco Department of Public Health wrote that taxing is "an appropriate method of correcting for health and other social costs not accounted for in the private market cost." So instead of going for soft drinks, candy, cookies, etc., more people will spend their money on carrots, cucumbers, and celery! The doctors also concluded, “In the end, putting our money where our mouth is means aligning our economic incentives so that we always serve up the healthy choice.”∽

  • Lower taxes for junk food and higher prices for fresh and healthy food

    If there are higher taxes on junk food, some people may not like the idea. They would rather have little to no taxes on junk food. The people like the junk food they had in stores. So if something becomes less expense than it usually is, they'll look for something expensive before making a decision.

  • Not within government's right.

    The nanny state, tyrannical government has seized power over our lives, but this power is counterfeit and unconstitutional. These ideas reduce the nobility of a free spirit, making us live as property of our masters in political office. Through history freedom has been a rarity, and subjugation the norm. That is not as it should be but merely history based on the hatred of those with power. We are sliding out of our unusual but preferred state of freedom into something terrible. I don't need a government telling me how to live and how to die. All we need for that is more terrorist refugees!

    It is very tasty and cheap, there is no need to raise the prices again for more food. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

  • This is stupid

    Let me just get things straight. Obama kicked out all junk food in schools just because some kids can't control their eating habits. That percentage is about 4% of kids in each school.Who cares . There will always be people who are fat I mean has he seen the movie wall-e

  • Increased taxes are not going to stop the problem of obesity and eating of junk food.

    This is just an excuse for the government to tax citizens on something else, if you want to buy a soda for 3$ and there is a tax of 7% people will buy the same soda for 14% tax because they don't care about 21 extra cents. The government should also not be able to determine what we can and can not eat by making it more expensive. This also effects the independent companies making the food and soda, and the jobs of the people working for the companies.

  • What right do you have to govern an Americans freedom of choice.

    Our population is not dwindling because of unhealthy eating habits. Focus your greed for american money on the wealthiest people not the middle or lower class. How about increasing the tax of products that are exotic or above standards that wealthy people throw money away on like yatchs and fancy cars or homes, jewerly and especially items that exceed what a typical human needs. Taxes are not a solution to any problem only a means to steal hard earned money.
