While 9.7% is a crazy high amount, they do a disservice by only pointing out that the average is 7.1% otherwise, making it sound much worse than it actually is. I'm against them curbing access to soda on food stamps just for this reason alone.

Also, 7.1% seems crazy high to me?! That is a metric crapton of soda.
