Philadelphia's city council passed a soda tax that went into effect on January 1st. Citizens are noticing that frequently the cost of the tax is more than the cost of the beverage, and many are in an uproar. The tax was sold to the public under the pretence that the money will be used to fund early childhood education programs (see: glorified baby sitter services). The soda tax is everything that's wrong with the Democratic party and a big part of why people hate Democrats and handed them their rear ends in the November elections.
