"No one needs the government or special interests playing nanny and telling them they shouldn't have a soda -- especially when the justification is supported by strained extrapolations from flawed research. Ultimately, a soda tax will succeed only in further extending the power of the state into the personal choices of individuals and placing another regressive tax on consumers, raising revenue on the backs of low-income households."
