The Container Tax: Lipstick on a Pig

            With the Mayor’s soda tax facing stiff opposition in City Council – including Council President Darrell Clarke yesterday calling it “ridiculous” and unlikely to pass – Council will now debate an alternate tax introduced by At-Large Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds-Brown: a 15-cent tax imposed on any beverage container sold in the city aside from milk and baby formula. The tax, borrowed from Baltimore – not exactly known as a bastion of good governance – would be even further reaching than a tax on sugary beverages, and thus even more difficult for consumers to avoid.
