California Newspapers Say Taxes Are Not The Solution To Obesity

Newspapers throughout California are making waves speaking out against the “soda tax” proposed by State Senator Bill Monning.

This is the second time a tax like this has been introduced in Sacramento, even after voters continue to express widespread opposition. Similar measures in the cities of El Monte and Richmond, California have been defeated by overwhelming margins.

 

When it comes to fighting obesity in America, most agree that imposing new taxes on foods and beverages is not the answer. This is a challenge that can only be addressed through education- not regulation.

 

What do you think?
