Well, I watched the video. He is talking about taxing large soda drinks because they are major cause of obesity and cigarettes that cause disease. This is valid because we all end up paying for increases heathcare costs of people. Not tax on lower incomes.

Sugary drinks was his “for example”, he then goes on to coal and other things. He was talking holistically as a means to control behavior via taxes targeting the poor as he assumes they can’t make those choices for themselves.

Same approach with cigarettes. One of the easiest taxes to increase and of course will be supported by non-smokers especially. However, all this really does is hurt the user who is still going to have a butt, or a sugary drink, and now they’re just losing more money for it.
