This is a flawed and simplistic polling question.

WAKE UP AMERICA! FREEDOM OF CHOICE! THAT'S YOUR RIGHT! A SODA IS NOT CAUSING AMERICAS OBESITY...NEXT WEEK IT WILL BE SOMETHING ELSE...GOVERNMENT HAS NO BUSINESS TELLING YOU WHAT FOOD TO EAT OR DRINK! END OF STORY!

The government should stop giving subsidies to the sugar, dairy and meet industries and start subsidizing fruits and vegetable growers. I think this is a conversation starter that's why NYC put this out there. We have an obesity crisis and because of poor choices everyone is going to pay. Processed food is addictive and should be treated like a drug. Sugar is a drug in it's processed form. SODA IS NOT FOOD. IT'S A CHEMICAL THAT IS MANUFACTURED. I don't mind helping people who get sick but...

I don't mind helping people who get sick but when they are uneducated about their choices or don't care enough to put better foods into their body then they should be paying more some how.

The government already has their hands in too many of the people's pockets. It is time for our country to take control over their own habits to become healthier. As for the children, it is the responsibility of the parents to use common sense when raising them. I know Mayor Bloomberg had good intentions, but this is just plain silly and invasive.

Let's regulate GMO corn syrup and GMO sugar IN soda pop. These genetically manipulated "foods" are far more dangerous to human health than real corn and sugar products. Regulate the FDA's propensity to hire ex-Monsanto CEOs and watch the health of America improve with or without pop.

I voted - "It does not matter as people will just get another can of soda crap!" But my vote did not record.
Keep the government OUT of personal decisions and personal responsibility! Get your act together folks.

I think that they have no right to do this and restrict our freedom. After all this is supposed to be the land of freedom not a dictatorship.

I think that the freedom was really banned when large corporations were allowed to impose large amounts of individual food so that they can do mor money per unit sold. So, freedom would be restored should the government regulates what is reasonable for an individual portion of soda and whoever wants to drink more, buy another one, instead of the people who wants to drink less, and get rid of their healthy problems connect to obesity have to pay more and dispose the rest....Think about that....

Ah yes, I already knew coke was a controlled substance and this proves it. I even tried snorting coke, too but the bottle got stuck in my nose and the poptops cut it. I think I'll just have to start mainlining Dr. Pepper!

Se o Governo está tão interessado em reduzir o grau de obesidade the sua população, então, o que "Ele" deve fazer é CONSCIENTIZAR e não proibir!
