When we take Cass Sunstein's Nudging a little too far

Despite the fact that research from George Mason University's Mercatus Center indicates that soda taxes would have to be in excess of 1200% to be effective, and despite little to no evidence linking soft drinks consumption to obesity, and despite the fact that sugar contains 50% fructose compared to 42% and 55% for different versions of high fructose corn syrup- some politicians and activists are still trying to create the impression that our corn farmers are killing us and the environment!

This great commercial from the Center for Consumer Freedom depicts it well!
