Nevada assemblyman proposes fast food tax
Las Vegas Sun ^| Friday, Feb. 15, 2013 | 3:56 p.m | Matt Woolbright, Associated Press

The price of many fast food items would go up if one Dem assemblyman's bill makes it through the Nevada Legislature.

Democratic Las Vegas Assemblyman Harvey Munford introduced Assembly Bill 122 during the floor session Thursday. The bill proposes a 5-cent tax, paid by the customer, for each item over 500 calories.

Munford says he hopes the tax would deter people from eating out so frequently. He adds that the revenue would be directed to helping hospitals and improving Nevada's education system.

Too long the American farmer has been unjustly enriched. Government control over which crops are grown through subsidies is the only intelligent thing ever done until now.

Thanks to Michelle and some fitness conscious democrats we will all be more healthy. Saving the government tons of money since eventually everyone will have to have government insurance. Really did you think a private company could compete with the government?

I know I am much more inclined to lose weight just watching the gracious First Lady.

The libtard see nothing wong with trying to control people. Better why don't they just ban certain food from what they can buy with food stamp. They will not because they don't want their votes mad at them.
