    What I’ve noticed most is the lack of mentioning those that suffer weight issues not from eating but from medical issues like thyroid disorders, cancer, and so on.

    The second issue that I can see is the possibility of discrimination followed by a whopper law suit. Calling it a “fat tax” is an open invitation for a suit.

    It would be better to refer to these items as a “sweets tax” or “luxury foods tax” which is also more applicable to the intent.
