First Cigarettes, Now Bacon and Eggs

You knew it was coming.

First they came for the cigarettes, then Hank Williams Jr. got knocked off Monday Night Football for being politically incorrect, and now they're coming for the butter.

Denmark, on October 1, put a $1.29-per-pound tax on all foods that hit 2.3 percent in saturated fats. That's on top of a 25 percent surcharge imposed last year by Denmark's food police on all ice cream, candy, sugar, soft drinks and chocolate.

Getty said her insurance covers cleanings, but the deductibles for surgery are too much for the mother of four to pay. "We're the working poor," she added.
