A BGC/Excelsior national telephone poll found increasing public opposition for the tax package as it moved through the Chamber of Deputies. In the past two weeks, there was a 20% increase in those saying they were angered or bothered by the proposed taxes. Both the PAN (61%) and the PRI (57%) are seen as responsible for the tax package, while only 25% view the PRD as responsible. The taxes that faced the highest opposition were the tax on Internet service and the VAT increase, while most supported the higher taxes on tobacco and alcohol and on gambling. (Excelsior 10/26)
