Alabama House Republicans roll out option to food tax reduction plan – al.com

African-American representatives have been trying to get a bill passed getting rid of the sales tax on food, but with no success. The Republicans, of course, aren’t helping. Instead, they want to give “tax credits” to poor families to offset the tax. Because that’s much simpler. Actually, they don’t want to have to raise income taxes on rich people to pay for the tax cuts so that poor people can afford to buy groceries. How the tax credits are supposed to be paid for is anyone’s guess.
