TAXES: Time to exempt food

| December 11, 2020 1:00 AM

Today my PFL and I walked to Ron’s in Athol to get potatoes and beer. Ron’s is Super 1 to the new people! Our potato crop was pretty bad this year.

As we checked out, I again realized that I was paying 6% tax on my beer and for some reason 6% tax on the potatoes! Now I don’t mind paying taxes on something I don’t need, but how can we be paying tax on something we have to have to provide enough food to our bodies to survive?

How about the legislators change the law to double the tax on stuff we don’t need and cancel the tax on stuff our bodies require to live?
