Sanders opposes soda tax

The Media just whipped its knives out for ol' Bernie again because he refuses to do things their way.

Officials in Philadelphia have proposed a special tax on soft drinks - but of course they're exempting diet beverages, even though diet drinks contain cancer-causing chemicals. Bernie Sanders has come out against the tax.

You know, more people might support this tax if it didn't exempt diet drinks almost everywhere it's been proposed. To exempt diet soda is nothing but a bailout for makers of these chemicals and their synthetic subversion.

I'm waiting for some smart lawyer to file a lawsuit over these taxes on the grounds that it unfairly favors certain companies. Either that, or people need to start dumping out diet sodas at supermarkets. Seems like there was a similar tax protest in Boston in 1773.
