Patriots, concerned citizens, family, and friends are gathering in Ogdensburg NY to rally against the newly proposed New York State Soda Tax that has been
included in Governor Patersons 2010 state budget. The rally is taking place on the steps of City hall on Thursday February 11, 2010 at 4:30 p.m. Please bring
anybody and everybody along with you that has had enough of Albany and big government trying to push unfair taxes on New Yorker’s.
The New York ” Obesity ” tax will impose a “penny per ounce” tax on finished-product soft drinks and a $38.00 tax on the 5 gallon bags of syrup sold to
local restaurants and bars. This highly discriminatory tax will do nothing to curb obesity, but will force many local businesses to shutter and create more job loses in
New York State. Not only that this also sets yet another precedent not mentioned anywhere else, and that is the notion that New Yorkers are worker slaves to the
state that must always deal with tax increases unlike New Hampshire, and Florida that don’t even have the income tax. it is likely that businesses will shutter the new
tax, close business down, lose jobs, and/or move them elsewhere. As concerned New Yorkers and business owners try to run business in such a horrible
atmosphere it is important for us as patriots to gather and reign in support for such causes. This is just one issue obviously but it is important fundamentally for if we
can refuse this tax completely and they let off the businesses of New York we can perhaps start to make, and see a real change from the corruption we’ve had to
deal with in Albany for a long time it seems now (years). Eventually people hope that we could have a rally right here in New York someday to end the income tax all
together like other states(NH, FL, NV, SD, TX), and it just so happens to be that the states that have ended the income tax are the same states that are getting all
the migrant company owners because of states like New York that are imposing higher taxes than ever before.
All News organizations have been invited and please bring anybody that can make it, for more information please contact me through the comments section, or
