Bernie Sanders in Big Soda's Sticky Trap!
We are so disappointed with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' ill-informed opposition to Philadephia Mayor Jim Kenney's proposed soda tax!
In this new Huffington Post article, Laurie David addresses Bernie's claim that a soda tax would be "regressive and hurt poor people" and rightly points out that sugary drinks themselves "disproportionately hurt low-income, predominantly minority communities". Nothing is more regressive and hurts poor people more than the serious health problems associated with drinking soda: type 2 diabetes and obesity!
