It is so refreshing to see someone in government that knows how to put Soft drinks and Bike sharing on top of the list
over such small things like health and heating. http://thinkprogress.org/health/2012...ndy/?mobile=nc
As far as soft drinks go all it does is keep the poor from buying more than 12 ounces. The working construction worker will just buy another soft drink after they finish the first one. Think of how we do it at home, get a 12 or 24 pack and put it in the fridge and get one when you want one. Unless they put a limit on the number someone buys. As far as a large soda costing more than a bottle of water let me think, water in most places is free and even from a purification machine it cost 25 cents a gallon so the water bottles must cost a lot more than a soda cup. That and the fact you can get water from a soda despencer.
Now if they could put as much effort at getting heat and housing to displaced poor as they did to sodas and bicycles maybe New York could get back on their feet.
