House Speaker John A. Boehner is not a fan of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s big-soda ban.

“Are you kidding me?” he said when asked about the policy Friday morning. “Doesn’t he have bigger issues to deal with than the size of some soft drink somebody buys?”


Mr. Bloomberg has called for cutting down the maximum size of sugary drinks that can be bought in New York as a move to try to promote healthier eating.
