This November, Boulder will vote on measure 2H — a beverage and grocery tax that would impact consumers, local restaurant owners and grocers.


In case you missed it, Boulder voters will ballot measure 2H, a beverage and grocery tax on this November. The tax is being disguised as a “soda tax,” but it will raise beverage and grocery prices across the board.

Local Boulder grocers and restaurants deserve better.

Our local restaurant owners and grocers don't need more red tape. Measure 2H is confusing and full of loopholes. The accounting cost for this new unknown administrative process alone will be a huge burden.

Taxes don’t make people healthy, only diet and exercise can do that.

This is the wrong approach to solving obesity. Obesity and diabetes are very complex issues that can’t be solved by focusing on one food or beverage.

Boulder residents have higher priorities.

Boulder residents have higher priorities than a tax on beverages and groceries. We should be focused on crime, open space, homelessness, and the housing affordability gap.

Boulder families shouldn’t have to pay more.

This beverage and grocery tax is regressive, meaning it disproportionately falls on low-income and middle class families. Even U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders recently agreed. Sanders said a soda tax is "a totally regressive tax" and money shouldn’t be raised on "the backs of low-income or hard-working people."
