Thank you for HEARING the residents of Cook County! This tax is unnecessary, unfair and flat out ridiculous! The fact that LINK card holders will be exempt from this EXTRA tax is a slap in the face! Surely the county should care more about the health of the food they are supplying than the food purchased by constituents using their OWN hard earned money!
Thanks to your Tax hike with the sugary drinks I now buy my groceries in Will county. Your welcome Will county!
I no longer buy my soda or cigarettes in cook county. Until the tax is removed I will ship for everything outside of cook county you won't get any of my money. Hope this helps with the budget.
Repeal or the Counties surrounding Cook will see a big increase in sale revenue. Not only will people buy there sugary drinks there they will also buy there groceries there.
It's completely ridiculous that we have to suffer cause these people have the county & state in the gutter so let's hit the residents up to pay extra for sugar drinks to fund your mess up! What's next 8% food increase on foods with sugar? Ontop of assessment increases that are outrageous! You should be ashamed of yourselves. Not only are people going to Will county to buy beverages & groceries, they are moving away from the state of Illinois! Quit making tax payers pay for your mess ups! Disgraceful!
