I would never, ever vote for Bloomberg - and for a legion of reasons. But two biggies for me are: 1) he's the Big Gulp Gestapo; 2) he says tax the poor so they have less money to waste.
I don't even drink much soda, but I don't need a tyrant telling me I can't have all I want. I believe we should tax the poor, but not because they waste money on items I don't approve of. I believe we should tax the poor so they have some skin in the game. When they're clamoring for politicians to raise taxes, they need to know that means THEY'LL be paying more taxes as well.
