Phoenix ready to impose 2 percent food tax

• East Valley Tribune

Phoenix City Council members appear ready to approve a 2 percent tax on food purchases.

During a special meeting Tuesday, the council is likely to vote on the tax as a way of closing a $241 million budget deficit.

If approved, the tax would take effect April 1.

There are four basic necessities:  Food, Water, Shelter, and Safety.   The city Lords of Phoenix are attacking one of these; food.  Possibly we will be able to convince them not go go thru with this - BUT - if they do then ALL of us must remember this at election time and vote EVERY ONE OF THEM of them out of office - forever, AND never do buisness with any business or company any of them own or are a part of.

It only takes a perusal of Phoenix'  Comprehensive Annual Financial Report to see how ludicrous this is. There constant references to budget deficits has nothing to do with the financial condition of the city.

 I don't suppose the alternative of cutting back on their spending has ever occurred to them. . . .
