I could see this as being punitive to those who may already be having a hard time just keeping food on the table, much less making wise food choices. As long as there is a market for processed food, the consumer should not be made the target of such measures; rather, the manufacturer should be 'discouraged' from producing things like the aforementioned spaghetti sauce with ridiculous and unwarranted amounts of sugar or sodium. Not too much since I also dislike government micromanaging in the marketplace, but enough to at least get their attention.

Any sugar subsidy issue could be addressed by tax credits to those who buy from U.S. based suppliers.
