The idiot politicians have outdone themselves with their new upcoming tiered sales tax. In addition to complicating things with a prejudicial point system to kick things off (people who don’t use cashless payments won’t be able to get points), they decided to continue to tax food at 8% to try to convince their constituents that “they care.”

To make things even worse, they’ve determined that the food you eat sitting in a restaurant or in front of the establishment where you bought the food is taxable at 10%. I know, it’s the same food, but that’s not how they see it.

What they probably are failing to foresee are the people (think foreign tourists, etc.) who are counting their yen and won’t pay that extra 2%. They’ll probably take their food out to eat it and throw the trash in the street. Litter collection costs are going to go up!

持ち帰り=8%; 店内飲食=10%

やった!バカな政治家が再び訳の分からない法律で混乱を増す。差別的なキャッシュレスでしか利用でいないポイント制度と共に国民のことを心配しているふりをし、食べ物を現在の8%課税のままにした。本当に心配しているなら無税は妥当!

天才の政治家たちはさらに食べ物を区別するようにした。レストランなど、店が用意したところで食べる食べ物は10%。座って食べると食べ物が2%の価値が上がるようだ。ハイ、ハイ同じ材料だけど、あなたは座っているだぞ!

いつものように先をよめない政治家はお金をケチっている旅行者などを視野に入っていない。彼らはその2%のため無理やり外に持ち出して歩きながら食べて、包装紙などを道に捨てるだろう。ゴミ問題が増えてきそう
