Residents Think Philly Has a Tax Problem

At least that’s what 70 percent of Philadelphians think, according to a recent Pew poll. The information also suggests that 49 percent of Philadelphians would be willing to pay higher taxes for more city services. A majority of the 1,600 people polled said they’d be in favor of selling advertising space on buildings. This is the part when everyone should act surprised that Mayor Nutter’s soda tax is still a divisive issue. [Inquirer]
