Nanny Mike Bloomberg’s soda tax may have crashed and burned.
But in Berkeley, California, taxing folks who like to consume soft drinks with sugar may soon be forced to cough up additional money.
In November the city will put the taxation proposal on the ballot.
The move to burden consumers with an additional government tax is “drawing cheers of support from residents and health advocates” who believe soda drinkers should be economically punished for their reprehensible behavior.
