One of the only things we enjoyed about having the stay-at-home suggestions was binge-shopping online with whatever few pennies we have left.
Now a Democrat lawmaker wants to absolutely ruin everything on the planet with his insane proposal to rob people of $3 on every “non-essential” purchase made via online shopping in New York City.
Can’t tell you how happy I am that I don’t live in an overpriced, overtaxed, everything costs-too-much city like NYC because that pretty much negates my entire Amazon Prime membership in a week! Oh wait, if I lived in NYC, then I wouldn’t have enough money for Amazon Prime anyway!
That city charges way too much for everything from real estate to ice cream cones and now this lawmaker wants an extra $3 for delivering non-essential items? Oh no!
As seen on The Blaze:
According to New York Assemblyman Robert Carroll, a Democrat, enacting a $3 surcharge on package deliveries from online purchases would raise more than $1 billion per year, considering that an estimated 1.8 million packages are delivered daily in the Big Apple.
“Delivery trucks and vans are a ubiquitous presence on our city streets, weaving through our neighborhoods, double-parking in bus lanes and idling outside buildings, day and night,” Carroll wrote in an op-ed in the New York Daily News. “Shopping online is cheap and convenient. It also means more trucks clogging city traffic, slowing buses, and spewing pollution, all of which have costs of their own.”
Carroll sounds like he’s a lot of fun at parties.
He’s got New Yorkers sparking the economy by ordering tons of items, giving delivery drivers jobs, and now he’s finding something to complain about.
How about this? New York is overcrowded to begin with and maybe they never should have built a city that dense.
Traffic is part of the problem and lifestyle in New York City and that’s not going to end anytime soon.
But should people pay an extra $3 just to get something delivered? Heck no!
If I lived in NYC, then I wouldn’t want to be paying an extra $3 just to get my “as seen on TV” onion dicer that is 100% going to break and never work like they do on the commercial.
I wouldn’t want to pay $3 extra to get my “Now That’s What I Call Music 46” on CD in the mail!
Screw this guy!!
