    democrats never met a tax they didn’t love, maybe they can find a way to tax you by the ounce when you take a leak, like they made use close our septice tanks and hook up to public sewer so they could charge us 200 dollars every 3 months, and to tell you how nice they were about it , when i complained about it , they threatened me by saying they would condem my house and take it

          • john last

            Well, I remember when the definition of “liberal” was different from socialists or progressive (regressive-communist/socialist).
            There might well be some “old school” liberals (pre-1969) still out there, as well as some “real Democrats”.
            I’ve but a thin, but nearly opaque hope , there are.

          • marshmil1789

            Democrats have no intentions of improving anything. They keep the “slaves” down on the plantation so they can continue promising better things which they never deliver. It’s a game where they “sound” good to their slave constituents to get votes but never deliver on promises. That is the political game of “progressives.” They progressively lie.

          • Hey You

            There are many ideas which are floating around. Collectivism gives life to a lot of things that should not even exist. Seems that a break-up of the present USA into 3 or 4 independent entities would be of benefit to most people.

          Tax and give away, tax and give away. When will folks wake up to the hoodwinkery of the socialists/communists. They get elected on their promises to provide more trinkets tossed down every month to those who vote for them. Do benefits of taxation go to ALL of the people? …or only to the welfare recipients?
          How many of those recipients use EBT cards at fast food places where they buy chicken nuggets then ride away in luxury cars?

      The same thing happened here on the coast of southern oregon. Altho Im not hooked up to city sewerage They have me paying for their maintenence, and hook up. Its about how much water goes into my mobile home park as to what to charge me on the crap going out. When Newport City took over the water supply my pressure dropped by 25%.The democrats are happy to charge their costs seeing most dont have a pot to piss in and a window to throw it out of. It means more free stuff they wont ever pay for even if they were charged.

    • marshmil1789

      Richard be careful. Your comments might give Nancy Pelosi and her ilk some ideas and they will actually begin taxing us for urine production, the air we breathe, the space we occupy even outside our residences. Recall the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner line “The beggar is taxed for a corner to die in.”

  • oaking

    This is tyranny – the power to tax is the power to destroy – and it is about control, the doesn’t like something so they pass a tax to make people pay so much that they won’t use what the feels is bad.
    Carbon tax was the same thing and all about control of others.
    You pay the tax, it sounds like, even if you drink coffee black or tea without sugar.
    Seattle tried an ammunition tax, people left the city to buy ammunition, imagine that.

    • Roger_T73

      People bought their soda outside of Philadelphia and multiple 16oz sodas in NYC. People WILL change our behavior to minimize taxes!!!

      • cherieloren

        No, they won’t pay the soda taxes as it doesn’t apply to food stamps. The hard working tax payer sure will though, while they’re paying for those with food stamps too.

        • Mt Native

          And those are the idiots who keep voting those politicians in because of the free stuff. Now they will have another reason to keep voting for the demonRats – they will still be able to buy their sugary drinks and not pay the tax. The normal conservative people who live there need to move and let the whole place become one big slum and then see how they survive with no one paying any taxes on anything. It is sad and scary when they start telling people what to eat and drink. The end is coming, it is just not known when.

          • cherieloren

            I agree with you completely. The working man gets stiffed every time. It’s all about government control over the peon’s while these members of congress and the judges who allow this insanity to take place get richer and richer. And most of all I agree that the end is coming, no man knows the day nor the hour, we best be ready.

          • bttrap

            that would be a good system the people with food stamps could buy the soda without the tax and resell it at a lower price than what the tax is

          • timetoregroup2008 .

            Nah. You gotta think bigger than that. They do. They sell the (fraudulently obtained) food stamps for drugs or money to get a nice weave or foot-long fingernails. But keep paying attention.

          • Mt Native

            Ya but the problem would be what would they use their newfound wealth on – most probably drugs. It is just too bad they don’t have to be drug tested in order to get those food stamps or EBT card. That might weed out quite a number of them.

          • Hey You

            You’re correct. The end is now set in stone. No, we don’t know when, but look at your watch!

        • marshmil1789

          Why not take “sodas” off the list of items that are permitted by EBT? Allow EBT purchase ONLY in bona fide grocery stores–NO fast food eateries, NO restaurants, NO buffets. Sodas, candy, pastries are NOT necessary for nutrition.
          The current EBT allowances make working taxpayers pay for the other half’s “goodies” some of which is JUNK food. A major problem with the current system is that working taxpayers are taxed (robbed) so people sitting in offices can get paid a salary to decide where our “contributions” go. Before all this
          socialistic welfare crap came along everyone got along a lot better and when someone was in need the community (nor organized!) got together and helped out those needing food, clothing housing or whatever. That was in the 1940s and early ’60s. Then the “free sex”, “I got my rights” blight hit the country and morality was told to “Hit the road Jack!”. We wound up with crowds of unqualified people standing in line to fill out forms for jobs. A woman in a well-known national company’s personnel office told me that by federal law they have to let anyone fill out an application for employment but most don’t qualify even to sweep floors so they have boxes and boxes of fill-out forms that are useless. She said ALL forms are scanned for possible hiring for their needs but very few meet their needs. THAT is NOT discrimination in the social sense.

          • cherieloren

            I couldn’t have said it better, I’m with you 200%.

          • marshmil1789

            Cherieloren we have a faction that has decided the government can’t tell them how many babies they can and cannot have. I fully agree. However, the same people want the government to go to bat for them and get them all kinds of extra goodies. The same faction overloaded our population with babies via free sex now grown up. There are more people than jobs available. Instead of accepting responsibility for overloading the population they scream “racism” when not employed. Yes, everybody owes them a living! I once heard a woman say, “The government needs to create more jobs!” DUH! It is not the government’s responsibility to create jobs. Her mentality is the one socialism and communism both appeal to…let government take care of us.

          • cherieloren

            Agreed. The mindset of so many today is that the “gubmint” (taxpayers) should take care of them instead of them putting any effort into taking care of themselves. It’s disgusting and disgraceful to say the least. We have several generations now that have made welfare a way of life instead of how it was intended to be used. Back in 1982 I had to go on welfare, divorced from an abusive man, had 3 small daughters, aged 4 months to 6 years. I went to vocational school through the CETA program, graduated in 1983 with my LPN license and immediately went to work and got off of welfare. I was thankful to have it but embarrassed to need it and didn’t want my children to think this was a way of life. I was thankful to God for supplying our needs and thankful to the taxpayers for footing the bill. I worked up until retirement 5 years ago and have paid back much more in taxes than I took, and was thankful to do so. I raised my children to be self supporting, they and all of my grand children work too. If I could do this with 3 small children and an abusive husband stalking us throughout the ordeal, anyone can do it. God has been good to me and my family and I don’t take any of His blessings for granted.

          • marshmil1789

            God Bless you cherieloren and your family. What you did was the responsible thing to do. You allowed the assistance to assist you through a bad time but you did not make it your way of life. Bet you didn’t use an EBT card AND ride around in a Cadillac, Lincoln or Lexus! …I see a lot doing that nowadays.
            Great to know you’re doing fine. Best to you, your children and your grands. 🙂

          • cherieloren

            Thank you Marshmil1789, if God never did another thing for me I couldn’t complain. I had to smile at the thought of an EBT card and a Cadillac. Back then it was the paper food coupons and I drove an old car that got 6 miles to the gallon and I had to count the miles to get back and forth to Nursing School. Those were some tough times but God got us through it. God bless you and your family too!

          • marshmil1789

            Thank you. It galls me to see people pay for fast food with an EBT card then drive off in a Cadillac, Lincoln, Luxus or a Hummer II. I’ve witnessed that. Talk about graft! Those a moocher leeches.

          • cherieloren

            You’re welcome. It does me too. Also to see them smoking because if you can afford cigarettes you can afford to pay for your own food.

    • gotcha1

      Hit the nail right on the head!! Great comment!

    • marshmil1789

      Great post oaking. My state outlawed fireworks several years ago because “some people were getting injured”. So what! Some people get injured crossing streets, driving cars, using knives, using outdoor cookers, climbing ladders, using stairways to name a few “dangerous” activities. Why not outlaw, knives, cookers, ladders, streets, cars and stairways! When the sale of fireworks was outlawed in my state everyone just crossed the borders and bought their fireworks items elsewhere. Merchants in those states just raked in the money and those states got the tax money therefrom. Laws have never fixed stupid. Finally, recently some intelligent people woke up and rescinded the outlawed fireworks crap.
      Stupid people get injured all the time. Are we going to pass a law against stupidity? Are we going to make it illegal to pass stupid laws?

  • MILES E DRAKE

    The goal is clearly state control of what we eat and drink, as well as how we vote and think. The party of Marx, Mohammed and Murder wants all of us to eat in the Ministry of Truth canteen in “1984”, where the government dishes up paltry doses of vomitous slop while we listen to propaganda and recite slogans to each other. We have been given one last chance to stop this without civil war with the election of President Trump, and we must do everything possible to take this chance or else we will have to find a Franco or a Pinochet who will put fundamental transformers where they can do no further harm to the country.

    • timetoregroup2008 .

      I agree with what you say, but not as it is applied here. Chicago is more thuggish and straightforward about it’s taxes. They just want another way to raise the money they have already spent. The Dems in Chicago don’t want to control what you eat, or control you mind—they just want to take everything you have.
      They tried stealing lots of money with faulty speed cameras at every intersection, but when that was exposed—after way too long—they needed another way to pay off the union pensions, which they have already stolen.

    • SeanM62

      How about “state control” of booze? Ever travel behind the Zion Curtain to Utah??

  • Estell Newton

    Why coffee and tea? They’re not sugary drinks until you add the sugar unless you buy presweetened tea. And junk food should be barred from being bought on food stamps. If they can buy junk food and still feed their families, they don’t need that many food stamps.

    • Roger_T73

      BINGO 😁

    • gotcha1

      Perfect!

    • timetoregroup2008 .

      You haven’t been around long, have you? (Just kidding. Your comment seems genuinely naive, which is refreshing.) But seriously, stay away from Chicago—there’s more bullets than sugary drinks.

      • Estell Newton

        Sorry to tell you this but I do drink coffee and tea.  Just don’t buy ready to drink from the store.  And I don’t add sugar to either one.  When it comes to soda,  I drink very little.  But I still say junk food should not be allowed as a food stamp purchase.  As far as Chicago goes, don’t intend to near there again.  I’m in a relatively safe area and intend on remaining here.  Large cities have always had a gun problem and the more restrictions there are on them the worse the problem seems to be.  We have open carry here and few problems.

        • marshmil1789

          Good comment Estell. What needs to be stopped is the use of the artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup. Things were fine when cane sugar was used in soft drinks. Coca-Cola sweetened with cane sugar and bottled ih Mexico can still be bought at certain grocery stores. It’s great too! Like it used to be in the 1940s thru 1960’s before high fructose and then phenylalanine used in chewing gum and some other things. We’re told some jerk hoodwinked the Congress into approving the ingredient in Nutrasweet. YUK.

    • niknar

      I assume that the coffee & tea mentioned are pre-sweetened; if not, they should be exempt.

      And I agree with you that junk food should not be allowed to be purchased with food stamps, if concern about health is sincere.

      • Estell Newton

        Not only is junk food a health risk but if people are buying junk food on food stamps why do they need food stamps?  I know there are a lot of presweetened teas on the market.  I don’t know about coffee but there probably is.

        • marshmil1789

          I think we can find most anything pre-sweetened today. When are they going to outlaw the sale of pure cane sugar? It is a natural product and safe. If someone overindulges in food and drink winding up with health problems IT IS THEIR FAULT! Remember the fat nut cases who tried to sue fast food outlets for their kids being fat! There’s a crowd of nut cases every year trying to make a fast buck off their own bad choices. They are the same irresponsible ones suing doctors and hospitals. I call them fast buck predators.

    • marshmil1789

      Some of us have been saying that for years Estell. You are on the right track. Limits should he placed on WHAT can be bought with EBT (food stamp) cards. But consider too, when someone uses $10 worth of EBT card handout for prime roast for feeding pets, that’s $10 subtracted from the monthly allotment. They can make up the monthly difference selling illegal substances or sex.

      • Estell Newton

        I’m also against them buying high priced foods–steaks, sea food etc–.  What ever happened to trying a balanced diet?  Most people wouldn’t know what one is.

        • marshmil1789

          Welfare recipients with EBT cards think they should feast like King Henry VIII did. That’s fine but GET OUT AND WORK FOR YOUR FOOD!

          • Estell Newton

            Yes.  The Bible says if you don’t work you don’t eat.   Of course that’s referring to people who are able to work.

          • marshmil1789

            Right on Estell. Paul of Tarsus was offered some free “room and board” and refused it at one particular time. He was by trade a tent maker. Instead of living off handouts he went to work in the tent making. There apparently were some leeches hanging out around the place. Paul set the example to work for his keep and not depend on handouts. That’s when he said, “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.”

  • John D

    Apparently, Cook County has the best judge money can buy. I wonder what this corrupt fool was promised in kick backs?

    • William Braudis

      You hit the nail directly on it’s head. I too can not believe that people of any city would vote for any politicians, and that judge, should be removed bodily. However, the people of politicians seem to have a mental problem and cannot understand just what the politicians have/are doing to them. So chicago, continue to buy your soft drinks so your politicians can pocket more of your Tax Money. Stupid morons.

  • Stephen Gale

    these idiots deserve it! they keep voting these libs in office every year and the city is going broke.i remember another idiot from new york a few years ago (delblasio) wanted to tax a 32 oz.drink at fast food places a whopping 10%.so what if I order 2 16 oz drinks and drink them by myself? but they’re getting what they deserve also a bunch of idiots! remember obamason sent all the money to schools to help improve the diet of the fat little ones?how’d that work out.we have the highest obesity rate amoung the young in the industrialized world.keep voting them in idiots as you will be the ones to pay!

    • Roger_T73

      • J_in_TX

        Just do like I do and don’t buy soda. I stopped drinking it 4 years ago and don’t miss it a bit. I do like my large glass of green tea, sweetened with Stevia, every day.

        • marshmil1789

          Stevia, saccharine and sucralose might be alright. Saccharine has been around about 70 years. Nutrasweet (acesulfsame/phenylalanine) is a NO-NO. The absolute BEST is cane sugar–just don’t over do it. —common sense. But common sense and logic are foreign concepts to most of the population today. And another thing: DO NOT DRINK BOTTLED WATER unless you buy it in GLASS bottles.

    • marshmil1789

      Parents, not the government, are responsible for the diets of their children. I see fat elementary school age kids walking out of fast food places sucking a straw in what I call a bucketful of drink. They are so fat they have “moon” faces. Parents are at fault!

      • Stephen Gale

        I agree.but the liberals want you to know that the government knows what’s best for you!

    This is too funny – they are worried about sugary drinks in Chicago. What they need to worry about is staying alive in the most dangerous city in the United States.

    • Joe Varga

      AMEN!!!

    • marshmil1789

      But Amber keep in mind that liberal politicians have to deflect attention away from the real issues so it looks like they are doing something. Consider the Chicago constituents. They vote for do nothing politicians. What can we expect. Some of the same stupidity nationwide votes for and sends political quacks to Washington. California being the most obvious territory for this.

      • Hey You

        That label, “political quacks” seems to say it all. The big problem is that know-nothing voters typically fall for that BS.
        How’s that democracy thing working out for us?

        • marshmil1789

          I retrofitted “political” with “quacks” which as most of us know is a label applied to fake doctors. To me it just perfectly fits some of the political imposters being sent to Washington and to other elected offices. “Hack” is another fitting derogatory term but for me “quack” is far more insulting therefore a better fit.
          A democracy guarantees all constituents the right to vote. However, therein is a democracy’s weakness. Whenever the low information, uneducated people are allowed to vote they might cast votes for hoodwinkers. In the USA we have people who appear unqualified to cast votes for the good of the nation as a whole. They are interested only in the size of their welfare handouts. They have no awareness or knowledge of where money comes from to pay for their goodies nor do they care as long as they get their monthly trinkets. They are very much like kindergarten kids anxiously awaiting their cookies, juice, ice cream and candy. So our democracy is like a vehicle running down the highway with at least one of its wheels being one of those “donut” wheels.
          That wheel is not capable of lending full support.

      Ahhhh Chicago – the community that Bathhouse Barry organized.

      • timetoregroup2008 .

        No. Obama did not have anything to do with “organizing” Chicago. It was WAY “organized” a very long time ago. Barry is just a product of it. Following in the footsteps—the mindset—of another Chicago product: Saul Alinsky.
        The depths of corruption in Chicago is, how you say, phantasmagorical.

        • marshmil1789

          Al Capone might have had something to do with the organization of the underworld there. But Barack Obama helped pull it together and tighten the
          hoops on the crime barrel. The outcome is obviously a nidus of criminal activity,
          Saul Alinsky is just one of the demons who sewed seeds of socialism so others could till the soil, fertilize and watch the evil garden empire grow. It appears one of the trees from that garden is Barack Hussein Obama from whom corrupt fruit is falling.

        Ha ha ha ha! Thanks Mike. That is great! I’ve been wondering what community, if any, he ever organized. Otherwise he’s contributed zero to the good of humanity. He’s an absolute fake, imposter, foreign student who was whisked in to the high office by criminal minded people who failed to STOP him by properly vetting him. No true American would have allowed his name on a ballot.

    • SeanM62

      What do conservatives do about it? Just throw more people in jail to support the privatized corrections industry??

      • ECwashr

        Privatized Corrections, no such thing where I live. If there is in your state, you can bet it was started by demoRATS and they line their pockets with kickbacks from the companies. Kind of like Obama/Hillary selling 20% of our uranium to the russians and putting the millions in their bank accounts. NOW there is a true Russian scandal for you Liberal FOOL!!!

        • marshmil1789

          M62 will come up with a liberal rationalization to deflect your comment EC.

        • SeanM62

          I thought conservatives believed in free trade? I guess not.

    • marshmil1789

      EC you are using common sense and logic. Liberals reject that because it is a roadblock to their being elected so they can hoodwink more people.

  • gotcha1

    Regressive Tax. Think about it. This also ObamaCare. If you don’t purchase you are taxed and taxed heavily. Completely unconstitutional, no doubt. The idea that there is a tax on these kind of items is an opening to start taxing other products politicians don’t like. They are not protecting anyone with it. The money is going straight into these politicians pockets and do nothing to help needy people. Our country is moving toward complete political control and we need to work to stop it.

  • Steve Harr

    Tax the welfare, food stamps, housing, cell phones, travel, education, health care for those receiving these….. eliminate sanctuary status because these people are getting assistance also…. use the death penalty to curb extensive inxarcerayion…..all this adds to the need for tax increases .

  • carla AMERICAN

    Are American taxpayers paying double for food stamps purchasing those drinks ? Then more medical when the drinks affect their health ? Milk and juice are the only drinks they should be able to purchase for their children.

    • Mt Native

      No because the tax doesn’t apply if you are using food stamps. That is how they will keep those on food stamps voting for them. If the tax was charged when you use food stamps then those people might think twice when voting, or not. Those people tend to be the low info voters who believe everything the liberal politicians tell them.

      • bttrap

        amen

  • RST54

    So I suppose the rationale for this tax is to improve the health of Chicagoans. But food stamp users (who are mostly from minority communities who are disproportionately affected by conditions like obesity, diabetes, etc) are exempt! Makes sense??? Not! It’s just another liberal ruse to raise more money for their agendas.

  • Statesman Patriot

    We are getting very close to a much needed revolution.

    Our forefathers allowed taxation because they thought total taxes could never exceed 3% of a person’s income.

    Chicago has had over 1000 shooting so far this year. There have been over 400 homicides so far this year.
    ” Residents know little about it, as Illinois law doesn’t require Chicago to ask voters’ permission before issuing bonds. And when the city can’t pay what it owes, it uses yet more borrowed money as leverage to push off payments on old bonds.” –
    Chicago Tribune –
    Doesn’t that sound like a Ponzi Scheme? Remember the mayor of Chicago is Rahm “The Scam” Emanuel. A crooks crook – he got his start as a fund raiser for Bill Clinton and was Chief of Staff for Barack Obama – or whatever the hell his real name is. This whole soda tax thing smacks of Michael Obama’s B.S. When President Trump said he would send in troops to help get Chicago under control what was Emanuel’s answer? As everyone could have guessed – he did not need troops – BUT – send more money. The people in Chicago need to understand Rahm is a crook and will do nothing for them – I ask them – What did Bathhouse Barry ever do for you? Jesse Jackson? Jesse Jackson Jr.? All crooks that have ripped you off and you keep drinking their kool-aid.

    • bttrap

      I think soros is behind most of rahm , rahm likes dirty money and soros likes to dish out dirty money and rahm has his little morons like prepwrinkle collecting the dirty money for rahm to send down state to madigan wow what a bunch of crooks that need jail terms with a republican judge to set the terms not those crooked democrap judges in crook county

    The people are already heavily taxed, Only a Demo-Commie would raise the tax’s now. My suggestion; Move!!

    • bttrap

      the only trouble with moving is I would have to sell my house and after all the criminal acts in crook county no would want to be in crook county so I’m stuck with these morons in charge of crook county

    • Hey You

      You can probably even imagine “speak easys” where you can gain entrance to a place you can order no-tax sodas.

  • Cat Person

    I highly doubt if Democrats thought this one up. It sounds to me like something Republicans would do. After all—it´s always Republicans that are screwing the poor, the elderly, and anybody that is already struggling. But first and foremost, it´s a STUPID thing to do. More people won´t be able to buy those things—so if it´s money someone is trying to make—-I doubt if it will happen. In fact, everbody ought to just boycott them altogether or go somewhere else to buy them. I´d find a way to get what I want from somewhere else.

    • William Braudis

      Just what and who is the Republican that you speak of ? You walk the street and vote yet have an I.Q. of 3.00.
      Illinois is the Bastille for the democrap party and you people keep voting the democraps into office,
      incredibly stupid.

      • Hey You

        Typical voters have body temperatures higher than their IQ levels.
        Is staying in the mid-west of the USA, a mark of immaturity?

    • Hey You

      That’s usually the way it works.

  • Doxie

    This ridiculous soda tax is being added for the ‘health’ of the people of Cook County…(laugh-laugh), that’s what Illinois Demoduds are saying; however, anyone who has an IQ over 2 knows the real reason behind the tax…Illinois, (and Chicago), is in such a mess that the Demoduds are squeezing every penny from whom ever they can possibly wrench it in order to fill the tax piggy. Other Illinois counties are also considering adding this crap tax. Buy the soda with food stamps, then there is NO soda tax added. Hmmmmm.

  • Joe Varga

    That city has luck!!! Obama and,Saul Alinsky- couple of men that should practice in the USSR.

    Tax laws are the only thing they know. Why don’t they pass some laws to get the murders off the street.

  • MIKE6080

    that is the final straw , now everyone will cross county or state lines to buy their soda , while youre at it , buy everything there because its cheaper , cigarettes 4.00 a pack, gas 30 cents a gallon, food ,lotto tickets that arent rigged , oh by the way people on food stamps there 900,000 are exempt from the tax

  • George E. LeFebvre

    i SEE THEY HAVE COFFEE ON THE LIST AS A SUGARY DRINK. IF YOU DRINK YOUR COFFEE BLACK, I WOULD DEMAND A REBATE ON THE TAX SINCE COFFEE IS NOT A SUGARY DRINK WHEN ITS DISPENSED. ALL THE CRAP THAT THE CHICAGOENS HAVE TO TOLERATE FROM THE BRAIN DEAD DUMBOCRATIC LEADERS IS ENOUGH TO MAKE ONE PUKE.

    HE NEEDS LONG TERM JAIL TIME LIKE BLAGOVICH…

  • mensatim

    This tax is coming just a few days after Democrats in the State capital raised the state income tax by 32% over the Republican Governor’s veto. A double whammy of Democratic insensitivity and systemic corruption. Both the state and county governments would rather tax the residents to death than actually reform any of the out and out theft that goes on here in Illinois. The featherbedding in Cook County is atrocious. I’ve seen work crews with 4 people, 1 working, 1 helping, 1 talking on his phone and 1 sitting in the car. Toni Preckwinkle ran as reformer after the imbecility of Todd Stroger who took over after his dad, John Stroger died. She has turned out to be worse than either of them. She is as corrupt as Satan, but less forgiving. If she keeled over in front of me on the street, it would be hard to keep from cheering.

  • Mike

    Maybe, just maybe, if enough major chain stores and fast food restaurants just STOPPED selling these drinks for 30 days I wonder what effect NO TAX REVENUE on this to the city would be. Also, people, it would also be in your best interest not to buy them as you will pay the higher price far into the future. BRAIN FART: Bootleg soda from Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa!!!! Maybe people with EBT cards will now spend it all on sodas( since its tax exempt to them) and resell on the streets at a 30% markup. Turn $100.00 into $130.00 cash. Get your &100.00 back and have $30.00 for drugs. Win ,win situation all around. Chicago tax and spend Democrats will have created a perfect example of free enterprise and entrepreneurship at its best.

  • John

    I thought government was supposed to protect our safety, our rights, and our freedoms. I know of no reason, whatsoever, that can allow government to become absurd. Oh silly me, I forgot that government, especially liberal government, is above law, reason, and sense.

  • Cheh Low

    These scumbag Demorats keep raising taxes in Chicago. They forgot how we fought for our independence because England kept raising taxes from our forthfather and their business. Now these dumb ass are doing what the king of England did then.

  • David in MA

    Neighboring counties will love this tax.

  • mesaman

    An heroic decision on the part of the loony judge and the nitwit politicians of Chicongo. This will absolutely end the killings and shooting of innocent people. This defunct city must be the democrat mecca.

  • Jose

    President Regan said it best: “(BIG) Government is the problem”. As long as “our” US (federal, state, local) Government officials remain – as dependents .. addicted – to the ($) deep pockets of big corporations .. all of them (trusted ?) corrupt elected officials will only continue to dictate, serve and support whatever it is that best serves – only – the interests of their known masters. Reason #1 POTUS Trump needs all of the support of ..”We .. the (common) people .. just so that he’s able to “drain the (DC) swamp”. And, it is no secret that the said “swamp” is more a sewer which is infested by a majority of them (democrats and republicans) career politicians ..them elitist who want to have absolute and total control over the lives of the working citizenry.

    In the Meantime murders are rampant in the City, so sugar in Soda Pop seems a stretch in importance, but it is the DemocRAT way!!!!

  • ProudPilgrim

    They would make more taxing murder

  • niknar

    It is a fact that in order to operate, a city has to raise enough revenue. Revenue has often been raised by levying taxes on products considered harmful to health or the environment, such as tobacco, alcohol, gasoline, etc. Since sugary drinks have widely been found by scientists & nutritionists to be harmful to health, it makes sense that they’d be taxed. It’s as simple as that. It may not be the decision of other locations, but it’s Chicago’s decision, so if the inhabitants don’t like it, they can protest it, but otherwise, let them do what they think best for their city.

  • The Redhawk

    GEE Chicago is really OFF the Rails…

    Spend time over Sugary Drinks as the Number of Shootings go ThRUGH THE ROOF….Now that is really “TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS” by the (D) umbass party

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    Damn Democrats are going to tax themselves out of office. It going to be as bad as the days of prohibition. People are going to go to other towns to buy their groceries and their soda pop…I know that I would if I live there,….Thank GOD, I don’t!
    I wouldn’t live in Chicago even if you bought me a house in the best neighborhood!!!!

  • Hey You

    I have been around long enough to be sure that democrats were not always pro taxation. This is a somewhat recent thing which is required to support our welfare/warfare country. Also, younger people who are getting a good ride on the more recent benefits figure that it’s always been that way.
    Well, it has not always been that way. Benefits multiply because it’s easy to vote (or legislate) benefits in but very difficult to take them away. Real taxpayers want to diminish benefits because they know that benefits are like cancer. Cancer always eats up the host.

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    If Chicago keeps taxing everything, they will tax everyone until Chicago becomes a ghost town!!!

  • Richard

    So what does that mean to those of us that don’t have sugar in our coffee, pay extra and get nothing?

  • mensatim

    I refuse to pay the Preckwinkle drink tax. I will never buy any taxed drink in any store in Cook County until and unless this tax is removed. I live in northern Cook County and, while it is about 12 miles to Lake County, if I buy enough when it is on sale, I not only save the penny an ounce drink tax, but 2.25% of the sales tax since the sales tax in Lake County is only 8%. That’s my new source for beverages.
