Bloomberg And The Nanny State

Mayor Michael Bloomberg was dealt a major setback on Monday, March 11th, when a New York Supreme Court judge struck down his controversial plan to limit large sugary drinks in the city’s restaurants and other venues. The ruling came the day before the ban was to take effect. This week on BTR Pulse, Lauren Hawker asks people in New York their thoughts on Mayor Bloomberg’s many aggressive public health campaigns and whether they think they are living in a “Nanny State.”
