Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

I watched a consumer grab a $1.79 16 oz soda from a refrigerator at a cash register and buy it without asking or caring about the price, which was higher than the food they were buying. If consumers who will be impacted are not price sensitive, the tax is irrelevant.

The people against soda need to work on having a substitute that is acceptable by consumers. Otherwise, they will just be paying more...and will buy cheaper, less good food.
