Re: “Four East Bay Sodas Perfect for Sipping — or Pairing with Ice Cream for Floats

"..hurts the poor". Is this fact or fantasy? It seems to me that soda tax could just as easily benefit the poor, pricing out of their reach toxic products causing diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure and any number of other health problems stemming from obesity. Seems like an excellent way to counter the overwhelming power of those who manufacture such products. We tax cigarettes to help pay for the health care costs of treating smoking-related diseases. Taxing toxic 'foods' seems a logical next step.
