Stop the nonsense of this soda tax. We don't need more taxes. I am tired of my pockets being picked by endless taxes. If the supposed purpose of this soda tax is to curtail obesity and poor nutrition, then most of the food in the supermarket should be taxed. Nearly everything in the aisles is full of fat, sugar and salt. 95% of the food sold in the market should bear a skull and crossbones on the package, bottle or box. A Swanson's tv dinner is sheer poison; a can of soda is nothing compared.

Fed Up With Feiner said...

I agree with Stephen - the lower to middle class citizens are being taxed to death by adding a nickel here and there to just about everything we purchase. How about balancing the budget by reducing spending!

This is not only happening at the State level - our Town Supervisor is leaning towards creative taxation to balance his budget as well; e.g. the hotel tax - this new tax will push consumers to neighboring communities where the tax doesn't exist which will result in loss of sales in our business community resulting in a loss of sales tax revenue for the Town.

Our elected officials took advantage of a booming economy and made no plans for this recession. Let's start by getting rid of Feiner and friends who have spent 20 years destroying our local economy, raising our taxes by nearly 200% during his tenure, ignored our infrastructure, etc. We need smart-minded business people and not career politicians to run our Towns...Feiner has never worked a day in his life in the private sector and has no idea of how the real world works.

I agree with both of you. However, the only way to make changes in government is in the ballot booth. And Feiner has won because an overwhelming majorty of elegible Greenburgh voters don't vote, and those who do really have no clue as to who they are voting for.

Expoing Feiner and his puppet government should also be a job for local media, which, forsome reason, gives him a pass, despite the fact many I've spoen to are all too aware of his clownlike governance.
