“The Soda Tax.” No one asked for it. Very few want it. The money gained from it is being stolen. It’s that simple.
This tax is hurting the Mom & Pop stores which have been a staple of the Philadelphia communities for generations. People are now buying soda and everything else outside of the city. Philadelphia residents don’t want this tax, it’s hurting our corner store owners, and I’ll fight to get rid of it. I stand with the Moms and the Pops.
