Once again another totally unnecessary tax. The fools don’t realize how much this is going to hurt local business. With the implementation of Obamacare starting people’s disposable income dropping by a large percentage (and it’s “Surprising” to economists that retail sales are tepid or flat out down. I could’ve told them that was going to happen), the amount of money available for ‘eating out’ will dry up. Throw in the ‘meals tax’ and it’ll just kill local business and jobs. But, what the hell, they’re getting their damn money so that’s all that matters.
