New York Soda Ban: Twitter Reactions To Bloomberg's Controversial Proposal (TWEETS)

The internet erupted in protest Wednesday over Mayor Bloomberg's plan to ban large sugary beverages in New York.

Yes, a few Nanny State sympathizers chimed in to support the proposal (see: Alec Baldwin), but the majority of Twitter users sounded off in anger, telling the mayor to lay off their right to guzzle down gallons of grape soda.

The plan is just the latest in Nanny Bloomberg's health initiatives, which include his many anti-smoking measures, and his campaign to reduce salt intake and the consumption of transfats.

As The New York Times notes, the soda ban is most likely to become a reality because the proposal requires the approval of the Board of Health, and all members have been handpicked by Nanny Bloomberg himself!
