    Online Petition to Bag the "Bag Tax"

    The DC Council is considering imposing a 5 cent bag tax on all paper and plastic bags you receive in grocery stores, restaurants, take out food stores and stores that sell food like CVS. For every bag you use, you will be taxed 5 cents. The Council is claiming that the tax revenue will be used to clean the Anacostia River. While everyone can agree the polluted Anacostia River needs to be cleaned up, the DC Republican Party disagrees with adding an additional tax on its residents. The DCGOP argues that we need to promote recycling and correct the human problem of polluting to solve the pollution problem. The revenue could come from the District's budget which has increased 42% since 2004.

    If you agree that DC can't afford another tax, take a minute to sign our online petition. Many pet owners in the District use plastic bags to clean up after their pet on walks and this petition addresses this concern.

    Any arguments or insights would be appreciated. I've forwarded it to some dog owner groups here.

I think it's an opportunity to be independent minded. We are about 99% [the same on issues]." Ron Paul
