FAT Tax coming to your state next?

Alabama's fat tax
I have always thought that the Tobacco and Trans Fat issues were just a money grab for lawyers so they could donate some of the money back to the politicians, under the guise of “We care about YOU!”
Now it is showing the true colors of being just another money grab for the Government, the guise of “we care about YOU!” They have cut the lawyers out of the deal.
Since Hillary Care is dead and Obama Care is not a lock, The Alabama state government has decided it has to do something about it now. In the way typical of governments everywhere, it came up with an idea to encourage weight loss - and make some dough in the process. A fat tax.
If the obese members of the state's 37,527-employee work force don't lighten up in a year, they'll be charged $25 per month to help pay for their health insurance.
This is result of the slippery slope of Government controlled
