Silly New Yorkers
There shouldn't be a law telling you you can't drink as much soda as you want. If you want to drink a supersized soda, you sure as hell should be allowed to drink a supersized soda, this is why we live in the America. It's beyond stupid. And like Ehfahq said, people will just start buying two medium sodas or something, stupid law, not going to make a difference whatsoever. Do they even pass laws that actually make a difference anymore?

I live in New York, and this will literally have no effect on me whatsoever.
I get what he's trying to do, but it's not going to stop anyone from being unhealthy. They should have just raised the taxes on the supersize stuff.

I would have no problem with this if it was voted on by the people, and not by 8 mayor appointed officials.
But since I live in CA it really doesn't matter.

That's really stupid. Again, to quote Ehfahq, people are just going to buy two sodas to bypass it. And what will they do then, arrest people for having large amounts of soda? No.
Oh well. At least I live in Ohio, where we can drink all the soda we want.

Thank you HMX!
I gave up soda years ago, but with that said, Bloomberg should be ashamed of himself for passing a law infringing upon the people's freedom of choice. If people want to drink battery acid, they should be allowed to do so. Whatever happened to the parents deciding what's best for their children? Now parents can't even decide what they want to drink when they go out.

It's a scam, it has nothing to do with public health. If that was the case, why not do the same for alcohol, which has a far greater impact on society?
It was done because the people who would by it now have to buy two, which means twice the tax revenue.
Good old New York, figuring out how to steal peoples money since 1898.
As a (temporarily displaced) New Yorker, I'll say I genuinely don't care that this has been approved. It's provided for some laughs on late-night shows, and that's about it.
People can still buy Big Gulps at whatever size they please, because 7-11s aren't covered under this ban. I fully expect restaurants to start offering "2-for-1" deals or something to that effect on the largest-sized drinks allowed. New York City's mayoral election is next year, Bloomberg isn't running for a fourth term, and it's not like his successor couldn't reverse the ban. In the end, not much has changed.
