This is OUTRAGEOUS. Raise sales tax on groceries - which will hit the poor, elderly on fixed incomes and working families hard - in order to cut income taxes for the wealthy. Wow. Just. Wow.

Sales taxes are the most regressive taxes in existence. It affects the poor and middle class the most. For the state to even consider a sales tax on gasoline on top of the taxes already charged, sales tax on prescription drugs - again (I remember many years ago we had to pay sales tax on prescriptions), and to even consider taxing groceries at full rate again is unconscionable.
