From Room Eight:
It's not just this year's proposed sales tax increase. Or last year's sales tax increase.
Or trying to take away the $400 property tax rebate.
Or the MTA's fare increases and massive service cuts.
Or the proposed East River crossing tolls and the "regional mobility tax" to further support a bankrupt MTA.
Or the water bill increase.
Or the Con Ed increase. (They do a heckuva job!)
Or Time Warner's recent attempt to price gouge its customers.
Or New York State's new "millionaires' tax" and other taxes.
Or the federal government's coming tax increases.
Does anyone see a pattern here?
In a terrible economy, New York City is adding KILLER new taxes to all of its citizens. While also cutting services.
