    Just another example of the government trying to be our mommies and regulate what we put in our bodies. I don't condone drinking large amounts of sugary drinks, but if someone wants to get a big gulp, it's not hurting me. Bloomberg has way more things to worry about than what other people eat or drink. Banning large portions of sodas won't do much for obesity, especially at a place with free refills.

    This has to be the dumbest thing government's ever done. So now you can't get a jumbo Coke in NYC but you can get 5 small ones if you want to? Who does that help?

    Memo to Mayor Bloomberg: If you think this is NYC's biggest problem, you are seriously out of touch.

    Ban Free Refills - and up the price of pop by volume - the more you get the higher the tax on it. that would probably help better. - sides business would prob be in favor of no free refills

    People choose rather they eat unhealthy or not. Taking away the large drink won't do anything but anger people. You can always refill your smaller drink a million times anyways.

    I would like to wear short pants with a short sleeve shirt today. Will Mayor Bloomberg allow me to? I may expose my delicate skin to harmful ozone rays that are screaming at me through the hole in the ozone, and that may harm my health add to our national health care burden. I was also thinking of a brush cut. Are they still legal, or would the same UV rays on my newly exposed scalp drive up the health care costs too? When I meet a friend on the patio for lunch, will I be able to order a pitcher of Coke™ for us? Oops, a pitcher is more than 16oz.
    Me: "hey waiter, bring me and my buddy a pitcher of Coke™, will ya?"
    Waiter: "are you stupid? Mayor Bloomberg will put one of us in jail. Can I bring you a pitcher of beer, or margaritas instead?"
    Wow, I never realized how unsafe I have been all my life. Thanks to Mayor Bloomberg, soon I will be healthy, happy, and live to be 150. I may not be able to enjoy what I used to enjoy, but I will live to 150. Thank you Mayor Bloomberg, I never saw these issues clearly for myself. What a saviour you are. Now, can I still eat my vegan, organic, gluten-free, locally grown sprouts, or are they banned to?

    When is the next election for Mayor???

    This will have no more effect than when they posted the calorie count on the menu or anything else they have done. Some people just don't care and will order a second or third drink. Some will do it just because the health nazi's are trying to stop them.

    Rediculous. Nobody should tell you how big of a drink you can have. For crying out loud. If I lived there, I'd find the biggest cup I could get ahold of and carry it everywhere with me.

    If you want to stop obesity than you have to tell the people that eating large amounts of sugar is unhealthy then the people will stop buying the product and because no one is buying the big gulp because it's unhealthy. Only the people can make the companies stop selling a product not the government.

    Our country is too fat lazy and worthless to get upset about anything unless you cut off the junk food supply that keeps them mindless obese zombies
