Give me a break! Need a penny? I will give you one, good grief!

Those poor people will provide a great portion of the pool revenue, you can bet they will be paying that tax a penny at a time. Imagine your old grandmother, digging at the bottom of her purse for that extra penny. Shame on you voters.

Shows me how you really didn't understand my post at all. My needs are not so important, but the needs of those less fortunate could have been considered.... not everyone has that extra penny to give away. Funny thing is, the penny you offered to me is one you took from taxpayers. I'll say you certainly must be a city official, so easily spending other's money.

the tax would have been easier to swallow if supporters could have demonstrated a return on investment. Unfortunately for us all, no such evidence exists. All approved and ramrodded by our fly-by-night city council.

This tax should have never been applied to food,this is a regressive tax that really does hurt those low income families.

If pokie wanted to grow they'd LOWER TAXES AND ELIMINATE THE LIQUOR BAN. Time to wake up ur problems aren't alcohol its ur victim mentality. What will ur town look like when 67 is finished? That money should have been used to attract jobs...what will u do when Pinnacle closes? Or ESNA who's laying off permanetly 23 peep....do the math. ONLY WORKING PEOPLE PAY TAXES.

I agree on liquor but our property taxes are the lowest in the state and sales tax was on the low end amd we weren't growing. Low sales tax doesn't equal growth.

stupid use of a local sales tax certainly doesn't equal progress. wasteful and causes the poor and others to struggle more to make ends meet.
