I never would have guessed that a soda tax wouldn't have worked

If only somebody could have predicted this.

Last year I said that the soda tax that Boulder unfortunately passed would cause a dependence on money that will go away because of the nature of sin taxes. Philadelphia is seeing that now, and soon Boulder will. By the way, I got turned down for the committee that gets to decide how the Boulder soda tax revenue gets spent. I wonder why.

Don't get me wrong, soda is terrible for you, and no one should drink it. I will try to educate you about it, but I never support stealing from you with a regressive selective tax like this.
