Dr Bridgman shoud go and get lost in my opinion. Sort out the Health Service shambles first before agreeing with the Uk and slapping a taz on fizzy drinks. If we slavishly follow the UK on their laws etc, why is it we don't follow suit on traffic offences, drug offences and the like??? Hey and also why don't we have totally free health care like they do there. They don't worry about going to the doctors or dentist. The extravagant sums we pay here for basic health care would frighten the life out of them. Yeah follow the UK but give us the UK perks here then. Getting back to the point this tax would be so unfair to most people and would not make a blind bit of difference as the States know already. More tax and more money for them to waste. Just take them off the supermarket shelves then. That would solve the problem would it not.
