  • Yes, soda and energy drinks should be taxed.

    Soda and energy drinks are not necessary to live. They are like cigarettes and alcohol, a luxury. With this said, I think they should be treated the same and should be taxed. In many places you can not buy energy drinks on food stamps. That should be a red flag right there. I don't say these should be banned, but a little tax may deter drinking too much.

  • Yes, any non necessity should be taxed.

    Things like soda and energy drinks are not necessary, and should be taxed to generate extra revenue. If adults want to drink that sort of garbage, they have that right, but let them pay a hefty tax for the experience. There should also be a hefty tax on any other kind of junk food.

  • Energy and soda drinks have many sugars!!!!!!

    Soda and energy drinks contain a lot of sugars that we don't need. If we tax drinks the drinks the soda sales might drop and people could be healthier than now. Also sodas could be replaced by candies or some other products that contain sugar. Sodas and energy drinks should be taxed.

  • Yes because you need is

    Because you Americans are fat enough d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d mofo

  • Yes it should be taxed

    Soda should be taxed because it is not something you need to live. If you tax soda then people might not buy it as much. You can have soda every once and a while but don't get it like everyday the only soda I know that is better than the others for you is. "GINGER AIL".

  • Put on tax!!!!!

    I think they should tax sugary drinks because it could lower obesity in younger children. This might lead to discouragement for younger consumers from drinking too much soda. This might lead parents to stop buying soda for their children because it's too much money. But people can still make choices.

  • Sugary drinks are UNHEALTHY!

    Taxing sugary drinks is hands-down, the right thing to do. Honestly, I wish they taxed them everywhere! This tax can raise awareness about and discourage people from eating sugary drinks. Soda can cause obesity and other nasty diseases. The bottom line is, sugary drinks are unhealthy.

  • Soda is unhealthy, addicting, and a bad habit.

    Soda causes heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure. People who have soda will not have enough money to pay for medical bills (because they use all of their money for soda) and the tax payers-(us) will have to pay for the bill. Soda is an addiction, like cigarettes, and they are both very bad for you, people just don't understand what soda will do to you if you drink it all the time.

  • Soda should be taxed.

    If you add a tax on soda, people who would buy it might not due to prices, therefore making everyone healthier than before. Soda can cause heart disease, making people die at an earlier stage. So I say, there should be a tax on soda due to obesity and heart disease.

  • That is merely a band-aid

    While there are good arguments, this is merely a band-aid over an education issue. A tax on energy drinks would be a tax on the poor. What is truly necessary is nutritional education in primary and secondary school. Just like personal finances should be taught in school. There needs to be practical education in place. All the base subjects are important, but they need to squeeze in practical "life" courses.

  • You are going to die!

    A few more cents is not that much! It's not like the end of the world that you need to pay just a little more for a drink... A drink that you don't even need! Soda is terrible for you! People die everyday from drinking too much soda! If you want to turn fat or kill yourself!... Be my guest! At least if you tax soda less people will buy it! People should just start pulling soda off of the shelves! Soda sucks and if you drink it a lot... You suck too!

  • Just no to more taxes.

    It is not the governments job to try to tax things they believe are harmful to people. I should be free to drink soda and or a energy drink without the government putting a sin tax on it because they believe its unhealthy. Its not unhealthy if you don't drink it all the time and if you keep yourself in shape. Can we please get the government out of every little choice we make in life.

  • We live in a little place called amurika

    In this little old place we call the United States of America we have a little old thing called a constitution and in that constitution it states that we can basically do whatever in the world (almost). As we can do as we choose to climb a mountain roam the country or even sit at home and do nothing for weeks on end while consuming a carbonated beverage such as soda pop or energy drinks. Though these consumable beverages are extremely bad for your health you as an American to purchase any carbonated drink, junk food like twinkies, milk, chocolate, chips, maple syrup & so on. If you were to put a so called tax on an object that contains sugar and that being one of the only reasons you put that so called tax on the drink besides being horrible for your health it would not be wise to do so. A result of putting a tax on things like tea ended very bad during the revolutionary war. We see things like mind altering drugs being illegal so you cannot get those "things" but there is an extensive black market trade to sell and trade such drugs like cocaine, canabus, lsd, or mushrooms are EXTREMELY bad and can even kill you to death. We have an urge or addiction consume products like coca-cola or red bull and so on are sold by companies that make a thing called money to become Rich just as any person who knows how to make money will, but even then the consumption of soft drinks and energy drinks will continue. It is increasingly evident that carbonated drinks are bad for human health just as our teacher showed us with a documentary about health by showing a clip where soft drink companies were bombarded by protesters to the products. Part of the convincing aspect of the clip was addressed by reminding us about how in the 1970's tobacco adds could not air on tellivision but around the same decade there was a law passed so there was more land to roam on adds for things like toys, cereal and other things. Part of the p told how when tobacco was taxed rates of bad health dropped in the US but even then people will continue to consume again soft drinks like soda and energy drinks because of a human aspect called addiction that affects the consumption of alcohol but again even then a tax on just drinks will not compare to other products like sweet candies and other products. We have the right to consume, buy and sell carbonated drinks as much as we want and even if they are taxed that will not affect the problem of addiction to sugar and salts that cannot be quenched by the human population. - Noah Russell, third period 4/19/16
