When Taxes Go Up, Our Impact Goes Down

Taxes and regulations that harm consumers and businesses are not the solution to budget deficits. Imposing special new taxes on soft drinks are inappropriate and unjustified for several sound public policy reasons.

  • Tax increases on Michigan made products are counterproductive to rebuilding this state’s economy and fostering job growth.
  • Special taxes on beverages sets the stage for discriminating against other food or beverages also found at the local grocery store-or anywhere for that matter.
  • The competition in the beverage category is so fierce that even a very small increase in price has a significant negative impact on sales–translating to a loss of jobs and for people employed by the beverage industry and retailers.
  • We should not impose on our Michigan citizens a burdensome new tax increase that is regressive, discriminatory, unconstitutional and targets a made in Michigan product.
