New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg claimed this morning on NBC that "We're not banning anything" by implementing new soda restrictions:

"We're not banning anything," said Bloomberg. "All we're saying is, we want to show you just how big the cup is. If you want 32 ounces, take two cups to your seat. If you want 54, carry 4. But our hope is that if you only take one, that you won't go back."

The restrictions were recently halted from going forward by a court.
