Should pops that have sugar in it be taxed or not? They both have good points and bad points. They want to tax the pop, so the government will become more wealthy. It will make some of the pop drinkers to slow down but if there addicted.They wont slow down look at cigarettes there 5$ or so a carton and people still smoke them. If they tax the pop the government will become wealthier. It will stop some people from drinking it,but I think its just a way to make the government richer.I think there should be no taxes on drinks.
