Sweet drink tax--are you for or against it?
"Taxes on soda aren't new -- 33 states charge sales tax on soft drinks.
But generally they are fairly small, with the average soda tax rate
being 5.2%. On a 12-ounce can of soda that costs $1, that translates to
about 5 cents."
http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/weightloss/2009-09-18-soda-tax_N.htm For health reasons and in order to support the payments for universal national health care coverage, medical journals "are calls for a 1-cent-per-ounce sales tax, an amount
more than double the average state tax. It would increase the levy on
that $1 soda can to 12 cents." Do you support such a tax and/or tax increase in your state to improve health and health care in America?
