Let's make clear that beverage taxes are sending grocery bills soaring. It's not fair to balance the budget on the backs of hard working people.


This tax will add up fast. Hundreds of beverages – pop, sports drinks, juice drinks, ice teas, lemonades, even flavored waters and beverages with zero calories – will be hit with tax rates of as much as 30% to 67%. Prices will jump even higher when you add on the existing state and local sales taxes on beverages. Contact Your Cook County Commissioner and Tell Them to CAN THE TAX!
