The ethically challenged Gov. of NY State has passed a beverage tax. Not satisfied with high alcohol, tobacco and energy taxes the far left Dems want to rob working families under the guise of curbing obesity. The most disgusting part of this diabolical plan is the plan to tax powdered drinks.
Is this idiotic out of touch political hack so clueless as to not be able to grasp that very poor people
use Tang, Ice Tea mixes and so forth to stretch limited food budgets.
The real solution is for all state employees making over 70,000 a year to get a 5% pay cut. The problem is not revenue it is expenditures. Also if certain departments are understaffed there should be immediate hires. Paying policemen and other law enforcement officers absurd amounts for overtime needs to end.
