Maybe a few times a month, more of a treat, and it's always Henry's Orange Cream Soda.

I don't drink that much anymore. And the regular soda is lethal for me. I'll keep my eye out for Stevia diet soda though.

Yea totally stupid. It should be up to the person how much soda they drink. It's all politics anyway. He's trying to look good. Anybody can get two bottles instead of 1.

Even though this decree of Mayor Bloomberg is VERY Nanny State I wasn't adamantly against it and I'll tell you why. I'm pretty certain the next Administration will rescind it. In the meantime it will make people think about what they drink.

Sugary soft drinks, the phony juices, (and even regular fruit juices) are the very best fast track to obesity and diabetes. People think because there's lots of water in this junk it's water. IT ISN'T. It's basically tons and tons of sugar. Would you eat 9-12 teaspoons of sugar all at once? Well that's what you do when you drink a 12 oz can of soda or the other crap I mentioned. Multiply that by several times a day and you are taxing your body A LOT. And taking in over 500-1000 extra calories a day.

I feel strongly about this because I see the effects all this had upon my health. I used to drink several cups of fruit juice, Hawaiin Punch and regular coke. Now I get to deal with mild diabetes. And anyone dealing with this condition will tell you IT'S NOT FUN. I just don't don't want to see anyone else get sick like me.

All this being said though, the best means to get people to give this garbage up is through education - news broadcast, messages on billboards, buses, subways etc. (But like I said earlier I bet the ban gets shot down within a year)

I don't think someone should drink soda everyday, only on occasions

16 oz is still too much

I really don't see a problem with limited the sizes of drinks. If you want more just buy another bottle. I find when I do drink soda on rare occasions, 8 oz is plenty for me. . There other beverages that are better for you.

Texas Soda Tax Sits Flat For East Texas
February 12, 2013
By Jennifer Heathcock, CBS 19 News
Posted: February 8, 2013; 10:45 pm

Tyler (KYTX) – You’ve probably heard the debate about the tax increase on sugary drinks in New York. Now, a Texas law maker wants you to pay more.
A representative in San Antonio proposed a one-cent-per-ounce tax on sugary drinks in an effort to reduce obesity and other health problems. That means this can of coke, wouldn’t just be 99 cents at the gas station, it would cost you 12 extra cents to take a sip.

“Two two liters a day. Easy,” says John Devaul, an avid soda drinker. For big time dr. Pepper drinker Devaul, the cost of his bottle of soda going up is not refreshing. “Start adding a dollar to that? You’re talking $3.50 a bottle. Talk about two a day, that’s $7 a day,” says Devaul. A San Antonio lawmaker has proposed a sugary-drink tax that would raise the cost a penny an ounce. If this were to pass, it would depend how much more you want to spend. A 24 ounce cup would cost 24 more cents to fill up. The representative says the money would go to kids education in the state.

“I think it’s pointless. We get taxed for everything anyway. So I guess it wouldn’t make a difference. We’d still buy the coke,” says Brittany Kallon, who only reaches for a Coke occasionally. Kallon says it wouldn’t make a difference to her, for an occasional treat. “I think we should try to tax on politicians raising taxes,” says District 6 Representative Matt Schaefer.

Schaefer says it’s not the state’s place. “We have all sorts of public awareness that’s already taking place about this issue. Raising taxes and starting a new program is not the answer,” says Schaefer. The bill calls for the measure to promote a healthier lifestyle. “We pay a lot of money for things we don’t need anyway, so what’s a coke?” says Kallon.

“I don’t think would go down a whole lot because people like their sodas. I love my sodas,” says Devaul. Now the tax could add about two billion dollars to the states public education fund. And that’s just one of the things the law maker wants to fund with the money from your break-time drink. The people we spoke to today said it wouldn’t change a thing about their habits. They’ll have their Coke and a smile no matter the price. The same representative proposed a very similar bill in 2011. That one fizzled out before making any headway.
