National Poll Finds Americans Oppose Tax on Soft Drinks; Don't Believe it Will Go to Improve Public Health
Date:3/23/2010

WASHINGTON, March 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A national poll released recently by Rasmussen Reports shows that 56 percent of Americans oppose a tax on soft drinks, strongly believing that lawmakers are far more interested in raising money for more government than in using tax revenue for public health.

The Rasmussen research underscores that Americans are weary of more taxes, highly skeptical that the revenues would go to anything other than bigger government, and extremely leery of the government using the tax code to tell them what to eat or drink.  Accordingly, the survey found that only 33 percent of respondents support an additional tax on soft drinks.

"This poll reinforces that people don't want one more penny in taxes, especially on their groceries," said Susan K. Neely, president and CEO of the American Beverage Association.  "In this troubled economy, it's the wrong time to raise taxes on hard-working families, particularly when the revenue would simply pay for more government."
