I don't think it would do any good as most people drink and eat what they want regardless of the cost.

After mulling about it a bit, I have to say NO,

I don't drink soda at all, but I have no doubt that obese people are fully aware of the calorie content of each pop and they are empty calories(provides zero nutrition except the calories-which do count).

Only if the tax monies actually went into that fund.
