JON STEWART CRIED over it, because it put him agreeing with Tucker Carlson.
There is no doubt New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is correct on the facts.
It’s equally onerous on American society, because even without universal health care we all pay the price for the obesity and disease sugared drinks cause. You can count the sugar grams at sugar stacks. I’ve talked about sugar many times, including when Rep. Paul Ryan refused birthday cake from Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace, because Ryan doesn’t eat sugar.
But somewhere inside my libertarian veins Mayor Mike’s push is making me queasy.
There’s no doubt people who refuse to take responsibility for their own health, which includes overindulgence of sugar-packed sodas, are costing us all money.
What Mayor Mike is attempting to address can’t be solved quite this easily.
