Who wants to pay 10.25% SALES TAX? The county is planning the increase this November – just in time for the holiday shopping season. This will make our sales tax the highest rate in the country. Out of principal, I am committed to no longer shopping in Cook County which is sad for all the businesses that will suffer as a result of the increase. This is classic case of Taxation without Representation. None of the Cook County Board members asked the people about how they fell about the increase. Maybe we should hold a tea party on Lake Michigan.
CALL TODD STROGER’S OFFICE TODAY AT: 1-312 -603-6400 – Press 1, Press 2 and Press 2 to cast your protest against the increase.
It takes about 15 SECONDS to punch in your vote. This is legit — http://www.co.cook.il.us/president.htm — I made sure this works. I just called and put in my vote. Don’t know if anyone is going to pay attention to this, but it is worth a try…make a call from your office, home and cell phones. Please pass this along to your network of friends and family forced to shop outside of Cook County.
The next step should be to impeach Todd Stroger, A.K.A. “The Crowned Prince of Cook County”
