* Palm Beach County Trying To Raise Sales Tax From 6% To 7%!

The government powers to be- are trying to get a “vote” on the issue this coming November 8, 2016!

All Jeff Eats knows is that in 2016 Social Security Benefits didn’t increase (that’s the first time in the past 40 years)- yet you guys and Jeff Eats both know that “everything” in the supermarket and elsewhere costs more today than it did last year! The local and national bullshit artists tell- you the price of gas has declined, so no need for a SS-increase!

You do the numbers- “run” your own family’s numbers!

If you live in Palm Beach County- I say VOTE NO!- if you give the bastards more money, they’ll just waste it like they do with the 6% we already give them!

Trust Jeff Eats, the money belongs in your pocket not the County’s!

    I agree with you 100%.

    Unreal just unreal! The United States has over 19 TRILLION of national debt; we will NEVER pay off the principle! The key will be to vote these Palm Beach politicians out who want to reach deeper into our pockets…

    Hadn’t heard about this proposed tax increase until now.


    The government tells you that there is no inflation. FRAUD. Everything except gasoline costs more today than it did last year.

    I am sure that Palm Beach County can live without that 1% increase.

    I’m with Jeff, I vote NO!

    I did a quick numbers run.

    My and my wife’s monthly car leases total $763 a month. If 1% increase is approved, that’s an extra $7.63 a month for absolutely nothing. That’s $91.56 extra per year. If gas stays at $2.16 a gallon, we just lost the buying power for 42.39 gallons.

    Just multiply this 1% increase out over food and almost everything else and the consumer is getting killed for no reason.

    On SS, you are right, 2016 was the first year in the past 40 years where there was no increase. You know that’s bs, inflation is in everything but the US Govt is just tricking its citizens.

    I say that any politician who supports this increase should be voted out of office.

  5. Lo Lo says...

    Now they want to raise it again, to 7.5%. Anyone who votes for this newest increase is a freaking moron.

      Saw an article in the Sun Sentinel that the County Commission is considering an increase in 2018 of 1/2%. Absurd.
