After Congress failed to pass a 10 cent tax on sugary drinks such as soda, New York City united behind Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Gov. David Patterson is now trying to implement a sugary drink ban in New York City for all food stamp recipients. Patterson and Bloomberg contend that all of the public spending on healthcare and the links to diabetes and other diseases justifies the government ban.
Opponents of the measure say that this is just another nanny-state solution by New York, and that this is another case of class warfare, with the less fortunate being targeted.
Watch The Mangru Report Panel of Experts composed of John Browne (Euro-Pacific Capital), Paschal Liguori (Premier Estate Properties), and Florida House of Representatives Majority Leader Adam Hasner debate both sides of the issue and look at the real costs at hand.

While you may know him as the man behind boxing biggest champions such as Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and Evander Holyfield, Don King is more than just boxing. For instance, Don King is an Ambassador of the State of Israel appointed by Shimon Peres. That’s just one of the things that you’ll find out in this video.
In this exclusive interview with Dan Mangru, Boxing Promoter Don King tells how 9/11 has personally impacted him, and how he helped New York by organizing the first event in New York after September 11. King shares how he was moved to donate a new fire truck to New York City and the Fire Department (FDNY), and why he and Felix “Tito” Trinidad went to feed the firefighters, policiemen, and volunteers working in Ground Zero.
Don King discusses with Mangru why America is the greatest nation of the world, why we should not take freedom for granted, why it’s important to understand other cultures, lessons to be learned from 9/11, and how we can have peace in the Middle East.
