It scares me that Bloomberg is able to dictate bans like this (or have they actually been legislated?) What is the limit to what he can dictate from the mayor's office?

I get the idea of encouraging people to not kill themselves, but this is just silly.

You want to curb soda consumption, put a tax on it. Call it a fat tax. Hell it already has less nutritional benefits than alcohol and they tax that poo

Using the tax code as a morality bludgeon is not in the purview of the Constitution for a reason

One of the most liberal states in the nation bringing down absurd policies on it's people....you don't say.

I'm shocked that you arent a fan of sin tax.

But fat people cost the government more than thin people in terms of health care costs, and fat people also consume more soda. The link between sugar and diabetes is pretty fuging clear, maybe this societal cost should be including in the cost of your sugar water?
