Former Obama Stimulus Chief: Expect Taxes and Rules on Junk Food

Liberals deserve a lot of credit.  They have disguised their true agenda of government control over the individual with lies and deception.  What sounds like utopia to moronic Americans comes at an expense that takes away liberty and freedom.  Enter Michelle ma belle Obama, her thighs and her organic garden.  She and far Left liberals would love nothing more than to control an individual's diet and consumption habits. Former stimulus chief Larry Summers expects taxes and regulations on junk food under the Obama administration.  Get your Twinkles now...oh wait.

No more junk food!  The Obama White House would love nothing more than to ban food they deem unhealthy, unless it's for someone in their cabal.  Because, of course, the government knows best when it comes to what individuals should consume.  Looking at history, that's how it always works: if it's bad for the individual goose, it's good for the gander cabal under dystopian liberalism.

Details from The Washington Examiner:

Larry Summers, chair of the White House National Economic Council when the 2009 stimulus was developed, suggested that President Obama will eventually tax and regulate junk food to drive people to eat more healthily — although he dinged First Lady Michelle Obama’s healthy foods initiative.

“I think there is no question that the way Americans eat and what Americans weigh is a big contributor to health problems and it’s a big contributor to health costs,” Summers said on Morning Joe today.It’s not the agenda now, but I think at some point you’re going to see tax measures and regulatory measures that are going to be directed at helping people be healthier. That’s just going to happen and I think it’s probably a good thing when it does.”

Summers this agenda to anti-cigarette policies. “[J]ust as we have over time done things with respect to tobacco that are very constructive and that are saving hundreds of thousands of people’s lives, that kind of agenda is going to come to other aspects of public health, including the way people eat,” he said.

Curiously, though, Summers took an oblique shot at the results of Mrs. Obama’s overhaul of the school lunch menu as part of her effort to fight child obesity.

“Should kids be going hungry at lunch because they can’t have any good food — any food they like in the schools?” he asked rhetorically. “You can obviously take it too far and you have to be careful.”

Nothing is off the table for liberals.  There is never enough; their appetite is insatiable.  Central planning is all they know how to do, just so long as it doesn't apply to their elite group of minions.  Controlling the individual is a necessity because they're intellectual elitists and know so much more than any individual.

This is the direction the country is going.  As we posted on our Facebook page last week, here's how you define Obama supporters and liberals in general: the hogs in the pen never wonder why the nice farmer brings them free corn every day. By the time they find out, it's too late.
