Detroit considers fast food tax

Detroit's mayor is hoping that a 2% tax on fast food purchases (on top of the state's 6% sales tax) will barely be noticeable to consumers. Critics claim the tax would unfairly target the poor. Others call it a 'fat tax.' Detroit ranked #1 in '04 and #3 in '05 in Men's Health's list of America's fattest cities. (Editorials: [1] [2])
