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!
