No New Taxes on iTunes, Haircuts, & Soda

For a change there is some good news regarding Governor David Paterson.  In an Albany press conference earlier today with other Democratic leaders, the Governor announced that he was dropping his idea to create a new tax on iTunes, Soda, Haircuts, Health Clubs and Theatre tickets.  The Governor said that he will use money NY is going to receive from the Federal Stimulus Package to roll back these taxes.  I don’t understand why the Governor decided in the first place to propose these new “regressive”  taxes which appeared were aimed at our generation. I urge everyone to call Governor Paterson and commend him for not  moving forward with these new taxes. I don’t know about all of you but I feel we are all in enough debt as is.
