of course now kenney is the new mayor. he's taking a look at campaign promises he's made the money in the budget and the taxes already raised and he's decided that, you know what, maybe an even heftier tax on soda is a swell idea after all. kenney has smartly promised to use the majority of the revenue raised by that tax to fund greatly expanded pre kindergarten programs across the city that could buy him some support. the usual opponents are already hyped up against the tax. among them, the drivers who distribute those sugary drinks and if those opponents succeed for a third time in killing the tax, mayor kenney warns most of his ambitious agenda on those campaign promises will disappear like that. he said as much in this week's budget speech. >> none of that can happen, not the stimulus, not the reduction in taxes, not the pre k, not community schools, not debt palely needed investments in park centers and libraries if we don't pass this tax. there's simply nowhere else to
