Check Out The Jaw-Dropping New Soda Tax in Philadelphia

Philadelphia rang in the new year with a controversial new beverage tax on soda and other sugar-sweetened drinks. The tax, which went into effect on Sunday, is the first one of its kind in a major city in the United States.

While the tax is technically 1.5 cents per ounce, which doesn't sound too terrible, when buying a 10-pack of 20 oz bottles those numbers climb pretty quickly. In this case, a 10-pack of Propel flavored water that originally retailed for $5.99 had an additional three dollars tacked on to it in taxes.

I usually do. I used to be a forum moderator at LOP. I manage to piss people off, regularly. Some people don'tike being exposed for what they do, and how money in all this matters. If person doxxes you, threatens you, and the forum owner bitches at you for banning, and DOES NOT back you up...there ya go. Not my goal to say aything...but. No need for me to even care, anymore.

It's the bit@h wife of obama who has stepped up her/its action against high calories drinks first in schools and next everywhere else. It's just a continuation of the obama's to force more US companies out of business to help destroy the US economy while allowing loopholes for foreign companies in thru the back door.

Fvck Dat!

Yes, I believe he did as he was also an obama suck-up as well.

The current mayor of NYC, Bill de Blasio is also an obama suck-up, so I would imagine it still is.

Where's the incentive for Big Soda to innovate?
