Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg – a onetime moderate Republican who has crusaded on gun control -- is considering throwing $1 billion of his vast fortune into an independent bid for president, according to several sources familiar with his plans.
He has set March as a deadline, according to one, and his decision will likely be contingent on the results of early primaries, and he's more likely to take the leap if the "extremes" -- meaning Trump, Ted Cruz or Democrat Bernie Sanders -- prevail.

Nope, he wanted to cut the level of salt in all restaurant food by 25%. If it failed, it was because of a revolt by restaurant chefs threatening to quit New York which has a thriving restaurant scene.
Ok, so that is still not banning salt.
You did say 'oh goodie, the man who banned sodas and salt'. The statement is untrue.
The plan, for which the city claims support from health agencies in other cities and states, sets a goal of reducing the amount of salt in packaged and restaurant food by 25 percent over the next five years.
25% over 5 years
I don't see why this is a BAD thing. I don't think the salt legislation passed, but it is one of the more sane proposed ideas I have seen come from a city government.
Restaurants began posting nutrition information and I think the saturated fat reduction legislation did pass.
