Drink Tax

By now just about everyone knows about Allegheny County's drink tax. For those of you who do not it's 10%. So keep this in mind when traveling to Pittsburgh. There is a website trying to stop it. http://www.stopdrinktax.com/ I do not know about you but I think that is out of control. Can the government just add taxes whenever they would like? Is it only a matter of time before Mercer County taxes our drinks? I know there isn't a tax on clothes in PA because everyone needs them but doesn't just about everyone need a drink once in awhile too? Below is a video from the Pittsburgh Pirates home opener. There was a protest outside the stadium, not for the Pirates poor play but against the drink tax. A beer inside the stadium will cost you $6.75. That's $6.75 for one not a six pack.

Thanks for checking out the blog and remember the comments section is open to everyone. I believe the next Board meeting is next week the 17th.

Why does the Port Authority need so much money when they have barrles of money that is just left sitting? Also all the busses are decorated with different art (?)
This costs money. All this is waste and then they complain that
they don't have enough money to keep going.
