John Stossel fights with a Philadelphia City Councilman

about the city's new soda tax.

Philadelphia raised their tax on soda, but the city right next to them didn't. So some people went across the street to their neighboring cities to buy soda, and Philadelphia lost their business. That means a national soda tax would work better.

Some people claim the soda tax disproportionately taxes the poor. So I think the soda tax money should be used to subsidize more healthy drinks.
