Another Idea For Saving Your Pennies: Maybe Your Sullen Children Could Drink Tap Water With The Odd Meal?

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, Sep 30, 2009 at 11:35 AM

This woman makes me crazy.

A one-cent-per-ounce tax on soda would raise billions in revenue annually—billions that could go toward providing the kind of health care these woman's morose children are going to need when they grow into diabetic, obese adults, thanks to mom's rabid support for low taxes and high fructose corn syrup. Soda should be heavily taxed—onerously taxed—if only to cancel out the the farm subsidies that make soda pop so freakin' cheap in the first place. And if you're worried about your pennies, why are you drinking soda at all?
