The American Beverage Association, others sue NYC

October 13, 2012

From NBC New York

Soft-drink makers, restaurateurs and other businesses are suing to block the city’s move to end the sale of super-sized, sugary drinks in many eateries.

The American Beverage Association and others sued the city Friday. City officials had no immediate response.

The city Board of Health approved the unprecedented regulation last month. It would stop restaurants, cafeterias and concession stands from selling soda and other high-calorie drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.

The rule is set to take effect in March.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg calls it a reasonable, promising way to curb obesity.

The lawsuit says the unelected health board shouldn’t be telling people how much soda to drink. The suit also says the rule “burdens consumers and unfairly harms small businesses.”

    Look people, the only way to curb obesity is to hold the FAT ASSES accountable for the additional medical costs. You take away the big drinks and the gluttons will just stuff their face with more fries or twinkies. Blooming-idiot-berg is as clueless as the rest of the liberals in this country (and the world). It much like you can’t make dumb people smart by lowering standards, you just make everyone at a dumber level.

    They should not only prevail, they should be awarded punitive damages against New York City’s idiot mayor.
