Robert Bluey, director of the Center for Media and Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation, joins Cam Edwards to discuss the Obama administration's use of stimulus funds to combat childhood obesity. $230 million of taxpayer money was allotted for this initiative, much of which has been used to criticize sugary sodas. Bluey and Edwards discuss potential better uses for these funds as well as a recent study asserting a correlation between sodas and teen violence. Originally aired 10/25/11.
