No matter how crazy some tax scheme is, never underestimate the power of stupidity in large groups.
So we thought Michigan’s newly implemented gas tax was bad?
Sure, the road tax puts us at the most expensive gas tax level in the country. And because of the idiocy of OUR large groups in Lansing, it even protects itself for inflation! But even so, our absurd taxation scheme has been relegated to second place in absurd tax schemes.
If Michigan were to follow the lead of Philadelphia (which I think could somehow happen), every six pack of coke 16.9oz bottles would have $1.52 tacked on. Every Pepsi 8 pack would have $2.03 added on.
@johnkim @SalenaZito Alchohol taxed at 10% per drink. “Soda” tax is per ounce. It’s crazy. Check out new price of Gatorade in Philly… pic.twitter.com/cKrE4p6CXZ

NEVER say it couldn’t happen here.

Frankly, there isn't a whole helluva lot of difference between the Democrat voting citiots of Killadelphia, and the Boobus Michiganderus herd voting Snyder/Calley Democrat-lite.
Lansing Nerdpublican's 20% registration fee hike, more than makes up for Pennsylvania's Bloomberg-esque sugar tax, which by the way, they raised their gas tax too.
Since the Michigan House and Senate essentially on vacation until next week, don't be too surprised if one of their toadies is taking notes from here on things to toss in the hopper for later in the year.
With the level of debt these imbeciles have racked up, coupled with a lack of integrity and fortitude to address the ever growing level of spending, republicans raising taxes really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.
