Let’s tax air

To the Editor:

An additional tax on soda is a perfect example of the incompetence of our state legislators.

What a joke. The NWHerald.com reader poll asked how much a new tax on soda in Illinois would affect how much soda my family purchases. It won’t have any effect, since we are looking to move out of Illinois; not because of this proposed tax, but because of Illinois
being the most fiscally challenged state in the country.

Maybe a tax on air would help balance the budget. And tax the heavier people since they probably use more of it.
