More on the Possible Food Stamp-for-Soda Ban

Should there be a ban on the use of food stamps for purchasing soda and other sugared drinks? Click here to read an article from yesterday's New York Times about the subject discussed here earlier this month.

As I've mentioned, I am in favor of the ban proposed for New York City. I don't want my tax dollars subsidizing the big food, drug and health care companies. Plus, the evil marketing campaigns by the soda companies need to be somehow countered.
