Don't legislators have something more important to do? Like, maybe, fix the pension crisis?
What the heck is wrong between their ears? Is there anything there but sawdust?
Sen. Mattie Hunter (Senate D-3) and Rep. Robyn Gabel (House D-18) are scheming to add a one-cent per ounce tax to your soda. Add 12¢ to each can of Pepsi you drink. Or that 2-liter bottle of Pepsi? Add 67¢!!!
HB5690 requires distributors to add the tax, so don't get mad at Jewel-Osco or Walgreens.
Want to give them your 2¢- worth and tell them to earn their big bucks for their part-time jobs by doing something worthwhile?

And if you want to see something that will really make you sick, go to the General Assembly website (www.ilga.gov) and look up the bills sponsored by your elected senator or representative. Remember that this is our government at work. Forget all about less government. This is nuts!
