    Mayor Nutball's at it again...

    Trash Fee, Soda Tax Are Go

    Top aides to Mayor Nutter today said the proposed trash fee and soda tax in the mayor’s budget plan would stave off service cuts and improve quality of life in the city.

    *snip*

    •The sugary drinks tax would be 2 cents per ounce of soda, juice and other sugar beverages. That tax would be charged to retailers, as part of their business privilege tax. Presumably they would pass the charge on to consumers. It will yield $77 million a year, but because it won’t start until January 2011, this tax would generate $39 million in the 2011 fiscal year.

    So a 12 pack of Coke will go up by $2.88 if this bullcrap passes. :mad:

    Throw this on the pile with San Fran's adding of "health care benefits" to dining out bills and a Chicago alderman wanting to ban styrofoam and burn them all. Idiots, the lot of them.
