Here we go with more taxes. IL just instituted a “snack tax” on sugary foods and drinks, much like an alcohol and tobacco tax. The tax should act as a deterrent to the consumption of food/drink that makes one fat, but it is also feeding the government piggy bank. Will this lead to other intrusive taxes? Maybe a sunbathing tax to deter people from doing something that may lead to skin cancer? This could be a pretty slippery slope.
