    For now...but I'm sure they working on closing that "loophole".

    OMG! Has Obama taken over New York City now?

    As for the rest, you're right. This proposed law isn't going to accomplish much, if anything. You can't legislate positive choices.

    Putting calorie counts right on the menu is a much better idea. Applebe's started doing that here, and holy crap, some of the entres I used to like have a whole day's allotment of calories or more!

    Oh, to own a convenience store just on the other side of the NYC border. They're going to make a mint on people coming outside the city to buy drinks now. I wonder how long until the owners of all the supermarkets, bodegas, etc.... in New York City rise up in revolt.

    Govt is saying we are too stupid to make our own choices. Sadly (as a whole) Americans are proving them right every chance we get. I don't agree with it however. Government doesn't and shouldn't have that authority. I find it funny however that you want to target liberals in the OP when it seems to me conservatives are the one more often fighting to keep things restricted (marijuana for one example).

    Closing that 'loophole' would require reconfiguration of many, many establishments. Unless you physically secure the soda source (eliminating self serve) then you would need a "soda cop" to enforce it. The whole thing is moronic, since limits only on serving size, yet being unable to prevent an unlimitted number of servings, is still easy to avert, just possibly a bit more expensive and inconvenient. Short of issuing individual, non-transferable rationing coupons, it is not possible to keep "Porky" from easily getting their soda pop fix.

    blue laws, aren't supported by Liberals..but by Conservatives.

    drug-decriminalization is opposed by Conservatives.

    yes, for the most part, those who want to maintain & increase the Nanny-state...are Conservatives.
