I would prefer this be a sales tax and for it to have fewer exceptions, no exception for juice and milk products if sugar is added, otherwise I'm really digging this. I would love for us to end our subsidizing of the corn industry as well. What's your take on all of this?

"But all in, it could add up to 18 cents to the cost of a 12-ounce can, $1 to the cost of a 2-liter container, and $2.16 to the cost of a 12-pack. It will impact sodas, teas, sports drinks, flavored waters, bottled coffees and energy drinks, among other products.

Exempt products include baby formula and beverages that are more than 50 percent fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, or milk. Beverages for which customers request sweetener or add it themselves (such as at a coffee shop) are also exempt."
