Free Tempe - End the Food Tax - Sign the Petition

• Stop Taxing Food

Does your City tax food meant for home consumption? Do they tax  groceries? Mine does and I'm launching an all out attack to end it. Taxing food is just wrong, it's morally wrong. I am personally unsure where anyone gets the notion that they have a right to tax food. I've started www.stoptaxingfood.us to help send a message that taxing food is not OK.

I know it sounds crazy! Here is text from the City Tax Code, you can read it yourself.

Food and Water are really the only two things we absolutely need to survive. Recently I was at a City Council meeting where an elderly man rose and spoke saying; "Every time you raise a tax or fee I have to spend more on what I need and less on what I want."  This man is retired and all too well feels the pinching of his pocket when taxes or water rates rise. 

Stand with me today and sign our petition to end the tax on food. It affects the meek, the poor, the humble and is in my opinion a crime against humanity. 

Share this petition with your friends and lets show the world that taxing food is not welcomed or acceptable. 

Thank you for all your support so far! Please consider contributing to my efforts today!
