Republicans, meanwhile, want to know how poor people are able to buy food

Alabama House Democrats say ending grocery tax is top priority – al.com

No, actually, they’re whining that if you change the income tax (removing the ability to deduct for federal income tax) that rich people would pay more. This is obviously unfair. I mean, if rich people were paying more taxes, that would mean that they might not be able to afford that fourth car or something. But if you don’t do this, then a state that’s already facing a budget crunch would see a whole lot of tax dollars go away. So nothing is going to happen.

    I’d just assume they do away with the deduction just to simplify the tax form.
