The plot to make Big Food pay - Helena Bottemiller Evich - POLITICO.com: "Lawyers are pitching state attorneys general in 16 states with a radical idea: make the food industry pay for soaring obesity-related health care costs.
It’s a move straight from the playbook of the Big Tobacco takedown of the 1990s, which ended in a $246 billion settlement with 46 states, a ban on cigarette marketing to young people and the Food and Drug Administration stepping in to regulate."
Looks like somebody watched that one episode of Boston Legal. (And it's insanity.)
