| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikWhoopi GoldbergHealthObese

New Jersey governor Chris Christie has been under all sorts of criticism since taking office.

Some of the more inappropriate criticisms have been about his weight.

A doctor said that Christie was so overweight it's only a matter of time before he has a heart attack.

Gov. Christie responded that his young children asked if he was going to die after they heard the doc say he could die in office.

That's just awful! This doc didn't even examine him or anything.

The ladies of The View tackled the issue and actually stepped up to defend the governor!

The most outspoken in his defense was Whoopi Goldberg!

The View Talks Proposed Obesity Tax!

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikFoodHealthObeseMelissa Joan HartNutrition

The ladies of The View got fired up, as they so often do, over a sensitive issue: sin taxes.

These "sin taxes" are basically taxes on things like sugary soft drinks that are meant to discourage people from buying them.

The whole idea is that obese people tend to buy less healthy foods and their obesity racks up billions of dollars in healthcare.

Melissa Joan Hart was there as a guest host but barely got a word in because things started to get a little heated.

The main problem is that some of the more unhealthy foods are actually way cheaper than the healthy stuff.

So a family on a budget could really run into some trouble with these proposed taxes.

Check out the video (above) to hear the ladies of The View tackle sin taxes.
