Toni Taxwinkle Sticks Much Higher Taxes On Soda in Cook County

Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle is getting a lot of attention with Cook County residents and the Chicago Tribune editorial board:
We bought a gallon of zero-calorie iced tea on our way to work Wednesday for $2.49 — plus $1.28 for Cook County's new sweetened beverage tax. That's a 51 percent tax. How's your day going?
Government greed from Toni Taxwinkle.
