As long as we have free will, we will have bad choices.

Are we as a society going to let the government tell us what we can drink or eat? I say HELL NO!

If the government regulates soda, then the soda companies will lobby our politicians, giving them more and more money for their campaigns, just to keep selling more crap. If we can't take responsibility for our own well-being, shame on us! I'm tired of people putting the blame on others when they get fat! It's our decision to eat that big mac or drink that sugary soda, not the government's!

The government has no business telling me what I can and can't drink. This is America not come communist country. Nothing against communists, I just think the way they do things is a little off. Besides that would be like telling anybody they can't eat what they want cuz it has too many calories. What I consume is my choice just like whatever anybody else eats is thier business. Good eating habits=Healthy weight. Poor eating habits=unhealthy weight. I know becaue I have seen it I eat...

It's all about what and how much of it you eat Not how much sugar is in a soft drink. The government can go screw themselves with soemthign like that.

What a sad state of affairs. One would think that with all the information re obesity and diet out there, that people would use their heads and eat sensibly. I think the government has a duty to try to protect and keep its citizens healthy, if not for humanitarian reasons, then for financial. Obesity leads to so many serious and preventable diseases, this costs taxpayers dollars that could be used elsewhere. Only problem....limiting the size will not stop the consuming. Perhaps...

Perhaps increasing the taxes on this liquid sugar and make it far more expensive than healthy alternatives?

Educate, educate, educate! The Government should use it's resources to support Organic Farming and healthy eating. A good time to educate parents would be during prenatal courses. Start the kids off right! I don't drink soda by choice. I don't eat donuts by choice, but that wasn't always the case. I've heard that Medical Doctors' schooling doesn't include Nutrition courses. I don't recall a physician asking what my eating habits are. Something is amiss here.

Is about time, that politicians start to think more about the people that they elected them or the big corporations and their friends.
