Citizens need to be reminded that these are the very people who were in control of our State prior to 2008, and they were repeatedly given Republican proposals either to eliminate the tax on groceries or to significantly reduce that burden, which does weigh especially hard on both the poor and on those trying to get back on their feet financially. As it was, the Democratic leadership in the House found itself barely able to swallow an effort to cut the grocery tax a whopping one-half of one percent.
