It's a money grab alone.


They tried to pass a tax on just soda but it failed. So now the goal is to force them to sell higher volume of smaller products.

Yep. Once you take away the pretty "we care about you" fluff, it's all about the money.

Here this is where this all started.





April 10, 2010


Article; New York State’s health commissioner would be the first to admit he has soft drinks on the brain.


The commissioner, Dr. Richard F. Daines, was recently driving down Interstate 15 in Utah, his home state, when he came across four billboards in a row that beamed a subliminal message at him, and not the one the advertisers intended.

The first billboard said, “44 Ounce Soda, 99 Cents.” (“This is a carbonated beverage, meant to be consumed in your car,” he said, marveling at the thought of such a large serving.)

The next one said, “Any Size Soda, One Dollar.” (“Who would go in and order the petite size?” he said. “It’s just a signal to consume.”)

The third billboard trumpeted Utah’s first dedicated C-section wing with a slogan that might owe an apology to Garrison Keillor: “Where No C Is Average.” (“Presumably,” Dr. Daines said, “maternal obesity and diabetes are one of the reasons women are getting C-sections.”)

The fourth billboard said, “We Suck Fat. Smart Liposuction.”

“It kind of captures the whole thing,” Dr. Daines said, getting excited as he told the story in an interview in his Manhattan office. “We underprice this commodity that we overconsume — and I mean we, we all do it — we suffer the consequences, and then we try to buy our way back out of it, liposuction or something, bariatric surgery, some kind of pill for obesity.”

Which brings him to Gov. David A. Paterson’s proposed penny-an-ounce tax on sugared sodas.

Dr. Daines fits the part of the sin-tax crusader. Standing 6-foot-1, he is as lanky and folksy-sounding as Jimmy Stewart, a Spanish-speaking former Mormon missionary in Bolivia who practiced medicine in the South Bronx for 20 years.

Over the past few weeks, he has been traveling the state lobbying anyone who would listen about the scourge of obesity and championing the proposed excise tax as a possible cure that has the added benefit of plugging a giant hole in the state budget.


Less then 50%

What he saw driving down the road was a way to tax people


So this tax they tried to get passed for the last two years and it just failed again recently, they estimated it would make them one billion a year in tax revenue!

Read the article these people are 100% certifiably nuts and want to run everything you do and make money off you at the same time.

I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

Where in the New York City charter does the Mayor have the power to abolish tobacco, beverages, and foods for health reasons?

Powers of the City government our bound by the City charter.

City Charter document- [link to www.nyc.gov]

Health issues are controlled at the state level according to the New York state constitution article XVII paragraph 3.

Sadly he likely has no clue as to what is in the Charter or even that there is a charter


Therein lies the crux of the problem and he presumes to know what is best for all


He is tied into a capitalist system


Their gluttony in government and banal corruption is beyond a 60 oz drink or whatever



16 ounces plus causes some neg consequences


likewise I have read enough reports on aspartame and their saccharin etc....not forgetting their MSG and. fetish for HFCS


too many people I have seen drink only "diet" drinks and end up with diabetes and obese


I eat real butter or olive oil, I avoid too much sugar but cane is better than HFCS and their "fructose" additives that are just as bad
