    What a sad world. How much of a lack of personal responsibility do we want to allow? Banning drinks above a certain size is silly, but the point made is clear and getting more costly.

    But I guess we should expect this when congressmen call for a Constitutional Amendment to force themselves to do their own jobs. What role models they are….

    The sequestration was supposed to be avoided. This is how the most powerful nation in the world governs itself.

    They die early, this is just propaganda.

    We’re paying for their health care anyway. This type of person also spends more than they can afford, doesn’t save for a rainy day, doesn’t have a family doctor, and runs to the emergency room for a cold screaming “Give me drugs!” And our premiums and health costs go up as a result.

    Even with a “Ban” on large sodas, what’s to stop people from buying two of the smaller ones??
    Dumbest thing a Politician has tried to do in a LONG time!

    I think the idea is that people have the right to buy two of the smaller ones — so their “freedom” is protected — but they are less likely to do so. Merchandisers know that people will buy more if they are given larger sizes. I’m not in favor of the law, but diet is a serious public health problem and we do need to try to think about it. What I miss in all the criticism is any better suggestion.

    So, how about this for a NOVEL idea: let individuals PAY for their own health INSURANCE [note: health CARE is not the same as health INSURANCE, though it seems no one in Washington or the media is aware of the difference], and let them KEEP the money they earn that they need to pay for it, and get government OUT OF THEIR LIVES.

    When I was a teenager my folks would preach, “Freedom and Responsibility are Two Sides of the Same Coin.”
    Then I preached it to my kids.

    It turns out there’s another coin: The other side of Lack-of- Responsibility is Lack-of-Freedom.

    This 2nd coin is worth less, though.

    “Die early” can be more expensive as dying late.

    Ah, the typical ad hominem rant from TheTrustedMechanic.

    Long on bile, character assassination, and stereo typing; short on substance, substantiation, content or thought.

    The last line is a real winner, “ Just another in your long line of stupid, ignorant, partisan and self-serving posts.

    Were you looking in the mirror when you wrote that?

    100 % tax on 32 ounce sodas? To be set aside for future health care costs? City and State can still set taxes, yes?

    We don’t have single payer. We still have the same corporate based health care system no one else would want and don’t. Blame Capitalism for working to make the foods and drinks taste that way.

    No need to insult. Just the facts. Let them argue the facts not name calling. Thank you.
