McDonald's Turns Up Heat on Bloomberg Soda Ban

McDonald's Turns Up Heat on Bloomberg Soda Ban

In the aftermath of Michael Bloomberg’s attempts to ban sodas larger than 16 oz. throughout New York City, McDonald’s has fired back via Tweet:

Obviously, McDonald’s is correct. What right does the government have to tell consumers how much they can buy of a legal substance? Why wouldn’t customers just buy two 12 oz. drinks instead of one 16 oz. drink? McDonald’s is a private enterprise being attacked for its success by a paternalistic mayor who has taken it upon himself to police the private lives of those who live in the city he governs. But shouldn’t the decision about how big a Big Gulp to buy be between a woman and her fast food cashier?
