Seattle's proposed soda tax is bittersweet

Mar 20, 2017

Bill Radke spoke with Dr. Jim Krieger and law professor Baylen Linnekin about the proposed tax on sugary beverages in Seattle. Dr. Krieger feels that the tax will steer people away from the unhealthy drinks and produce crucial tax revenue; Linnekin argues that this kind of taxation does little to help America's obesity epidemic while putting a tax strain on lower income communities.
