Taxes On Softdrinks - Yes Or No?



Proponents of a bill to impose taxes on sugared beverages and softdrinks believe this will help lessen the chances of Filipinos getting diseases such as diabetes much like how sin tax aims to lessen adverse effects of cigarette smoking.

Congressman Miro Quimbo says the money collected from the tax will go to health related expenses and projects by the government.

"We are pushing for the development of potable [water] systems in schools or develop milk that is more affordable. That is where the money will go."

But do you guys agree with the softdrink tax?
