More Taxes

Has anyone seen a single proposal to cut spending? Besides the one where they defund the CPD and everything becomes rainbows and unicorns. Because this is getting seriously dumb:

  • An alderman introduced a plan Monday to tax deliveries by companies, such as Amazon, as the City Council also capped fees third-party delivery services charge pandemic-stricken restaurants and teed up Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s 2020 budget for a Tuesday vote.

    Bridgeport Ald. Patrick Daley Thompson wants to charge an additional $1.25 for packages delivered by ground to addresses in the city that weigh 50 pounds or less, and $2.50 for heavier deliveries. Prescription medicine and food deliveries from restaurants would be exempted from the extra tax under Thompson’s plan.

Ruin businesses across the city, county and state, then raise taxes when everyone is sitting home not working and not getting paid. At least those not working for the government aren’t getting paid.
