Government “orders” people to stay home and businesses to shutdown. People are then forced to then make mostly online purchases.
So what does government do? Tax you for making online purchases.
Under a new proposed bill, New York City residents would be required to pay a $3 surcharge on packages they ordered online, with the exception for medicine and food. https://t.co/Ee3AalcNKQ

Apparently this money is needed to support the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which
is facing a budget crisis can’t properly manage tax dollars.
Read the whole NBC story here.
You ready to here Carroll’s justification for this surcharge…get ready for it…
“…argued that the surcharge would incentivize New Yorkers to support small local businesses instead of buying from corporations like Amazon or Walmart.”
Libera logic in a nutshell:
Government forces people to stay at home.
Government forces businesses to shutdown. (Walmarts exempted)
As a result of government-mandated closures, many small business are forced to close.
People move to shop online.
Government to tax your online purchases.
Government: Support small businesses!
What a cruel, cruel scam.
