Only a few U.S. cities are taxing their soda because the tax is claimed to be hurting the smaller businesses. Soda tax supporters are trying to reach out the people that don't approve of taxing sodas. San Francisco is trying to have a second try at getting enough votes for the soda tax. The Bay Area and the American Beverage Association is having a campaign battle for this and are paying millions of dollars for advertising on television. American Beverage Association is suing to prevent the 1.5-cent-per-ounce tax. Berkeley voters approved of the penny-per-ounce soda tax in 2014. A woman, Clem Howard, talks about how her mother, sister and brother-in-law all have diabetes, and they still drink pop. Howard wants to spread the word about sugary drinks and then it might help people to not buy it as much. 7.6% of whites and 13% of Africans and Latino adults have diabetes. The claim I support is taxing the soda. If we tax soda it could hurt the smaller businesses, but also not as many people would buy as much pop because it would cost more. Taxing soda may stop people from buying it as much and that can lead to not as many people having diabetes.
