Bloomberg Soda Ban May Expand to Popcorn and Milkshakes

Posted June 14th, 2012 by snowdog2012

(CBS News) While the New York City Board of Health approves of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to cut all large sugary drinks from New Yorker's diets, some members are taking issue with one major point: They don't think the plan goes far enough. -- Andrew Moesel, spokesman for the New York Restaurant Association, attended the meeting and told the New York Daily News he didn't approve of the changes, and his group is considering legal action.

"We don't know if next it'll be 16 fries on a plate or only one hot dog a day," Mosel said to the New York Daily News.

This ridiculous law is a perfect example of government regulation run amuck. The government has no business telling anyone how much or how little soda their citizens should drink or sell. Smoking is a proven carcinogenic habit with second hand smoke implications and it bears no resemblance to a soda ban, so don't even go there Libs. The government has no business in our bedrooms, our lunchbox, or our refrigerator when it comes to personal decisions on how much. This pathetic law isn't just unfair to small business, it's also an insult to all Americans who being told they cannot be expected to take responsibility for their own diet. This law obviously offends me, and I resent those who felt compelled to take it forward.
