I live in Chicago which passed a bag tax at the beginning of 2017. I believe it is $.07/bag. Anyway, the last two times I’ve been behind people using their SNAP cards ( food stamps) buying anything from microwave meals, chips, soda they also did not bring their own grocery bags. One lady joked that she did not want to carry them. Anyway, basically while the country pays for food for the less fortunate we are now going to be paying $.07 a bag in SALT tax in perpetuity it seems.
When will the madness end?
