Philly's Soda Tax Swindle

Philly.com: Philly's soda tax: How it's playing nationwide

Up until the very day it was voted on nobody knew 20% was going into Philly's general budget debt rather then just for the funding of pre-k classes.

YET THESE POLITICIANS STILL VOTED FOR IT DIDN'T THEY !

This was a classic case of bait and switch where anyone in the private sector would be prosecuted for it. Now that the cat's out of the bag just wait and see how many other cities will jump on the bandwagon.

I'm far from a believer in the TEA Party but this kind of chicanery could make a convert out of anyone concerning this particular political scam. What's next.. donuts, candy and snacks?

Who knows what grocery departments could be next?
