Didn't know where to put this, I don't eat much meat products tho.


Brace Yourselves: A 163% Meat Tax Could Be Coming!

PLOS Study AP is referring to - https://journals.plos.org/plosone/artic ... ne.0204139
"Did you catch that?

To put it in perspective: on meat that now costs $5 per pound, you’d pay either $6.75 or $13.15 per pound, depending on whether it was processed or not.
How would you like to pay a 163% meat tax?

In other words, rich people can keep their steaks, let others eat cake. (Does it sound like this is going to tackle real health issues?)

Bourne notes, “In his 1937 book The Road to Wigan Pier, George Orwell commented that the poor eat ‘an appalling diet, but the peculiar evil is this, that the less money you have, the less inclined you are to spend it on wholesome food … You want something ‘tasty’.”"

Now you know why I shared PDF eBook "The Road to Wigan Pier" by George Orwell.
