Where Does It Stop? This NY Lawmaker Wants to Do THIS to Your Soda!


New York has the reputation of being a nanny state. But, current regulations aren’t enough for State Assemblyman Matthew Titone. Citing health concerns, he wants to require identification to purchase soda pop 16 ounces or larger.

This poses a bit of a problem. It places an added requirement on the clerk or waitress. But, it also puts an added burden on parents. A 17 year old would not be able to order a Coca Cola at a restaurant without parental approval if Titone gets his way. Are there going to be soft drink police running around issuing citations?

Rather than giving parents the opportunity to discuss moderation with their children, Titone just wants to take over this situation. Because government knows how to raise your children better than you do.

I’m going to have a large can of pop and be grateful I live in the midwest, away from the clutches of the nanny state of New York.

What would you say to your legislator if he proposed this idea? Please comment below.

    I agree the Liberals don’t care if you don’t have an ID. to vote because they need all the votes they can get….but want one to buy a soda lol
    It’s just another form of Socialism…Don’t the Liberals realize how silly they are and that the American People know what they are trying to do?

    ID not allowed by libs to vote and yet they want ID to buy a soda. Is this a joke. You can’t make this stupid stuff up.

      Stupid comment, did you happen to realize your profile pic is a COMMUNIST STAR? Typical “useful idiot” (Stalin’s words describing a communidt’s favorite tool) doesn’t realize that voter ID laws help prevent election fraud.
