Mike Bloomberg on Families & Children

Mayor of New York City (Independent)

 


Get cities to hike taxes on sugary drinks

Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, said about Bloomberg to NBC News, "I'm all for it. I think he will be good for the Democratic field." Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, considered running for president in 2020 himself. "He is now the only candidate that has actually done something to impact gun violence. He is the only candidate that has done something to deal with reducing health care costs by helping to keep people healthy via sugar associated taxes," Cuban said, stopping short of an endorsement. "Adding the substance he brings on these issues is a net positive in my opinion."

He's also funded campaigns to get cities to hike taxes on sugary drinks, cigarettes, and trans fats-- efforts that have earned him praise from public health advocates, but also scorn and mockery from others as a "stereotypically laughable example of a liberal nanny state," as Time magazine once put it.

Cut teen smoking by 50%; now focus on e-cigarettes

Since leaving City Hall, I founded the largest gun safety group in history, & created a campaign to take on the biggest polluters and climate threats. And we continue to win battles against the tobacco industry & their sleazy attempts to hook young kids on e-cigarettes.
