NO TAX. Once it starts, with sugar in soda, it will never end. How many products have ingredients that could be considered bad for your health, like eggs, carbs, fat, etc.,The government should not try to control the consumption by an individual by imposing a tax and who are they to say whether it is appropriate for that person or not. Maybe I drink a regular coke once a month to reward myself for walking 2 miles a day for 30 days. I certainly shouldn't have to pay a tax on that.
Maybe they could impose limitations on what is covered by food stamps/EBT. That might be a better place to start. And maybe they should develop some programs to allow local vegetables to be purchased at more affordable cost for the less fortunate. I'm sure there are a hundred better ways to address the cost of health care in Vermont and the US than to start imposing taxes on people. I could go on and on about this stuff... but I won't.
