Soda Tax Will Save Souls In Francis Church
Come on guys…..taxing soda?…that’s probably the only thing the poor kids in Santa Fe can afford to drink. The Archdiocese of Santa Fe endorses the proposed soda tax by the City of Santa Fe in order to fund early childhood programs. New Mexico ranks number one in the United States for children living in poverty and second highest for children living in hunger. Because of the New Mexico State Senate’s lack of action to fund early childhood programs, municipalities are left with few choices.The soda tax is a good attempt to address the dire conditions in which our children are living.
