[quote]Someone is naive. Guess who bottles most of the water? The soft drink companies. If my sales of $3 soft drinks are declining, guess what? I will make it up by now charging $2.50/bottle of water instead of $1. There is a reason why soft drink companies got into the water business.[/quote] G...

[quote]Yet you seem perfectly fine with taking from people via taxation and handing it out to people who make poor decisions. I.e. healthcare payments. [/quote] I’m not ok with that at all.

re: Seattle sugar tax - CM Tiger83
I just not sure I can get on board with giving a tax incentive to help with the cost of a Gov’t handout. I would rather cut the handout, honestly but I just know it won’t happen. In a perfect world we would have a completely free market in health insurance without federal mandates as well as state r...

re: Seattle sugar tax - CM Tiger83
It may not go to healthcare but sin taxes do work. That’s why the big beverage companies are fighting them so hard. It will decrease consumption for sure. If you stop to get gas and a water is $1 and a Gatorade or coke is $3. What will people buy most of the time. Not clue why the actual tax number...

re: Seattle sugar tax - CM Tiger83
I’m a conservative libertarian but if we can’t get the gov’t out of healthcare (preferred option) then this is the only choice we have. Make it a huge tax on refined sugars and carbohydrates. We have to make the fatties pay thier own way somehow. ...
