The question is not who is going to cut taxes, but whose taxes are they going to cut. I support tax relief that would benefit all Tennesseans, especially those hurting most in the current economy. Tennessee has a revenue surplus. This money belongs to the people and should be used to their benefit. I would support a bill to remove the sales tax on groceries or a bill that lowers the tax on groceries and increases funds for need-based scholarships similar to the Tennessee Tax Payer Relief Act put forth by Representative Craig Fitzhugh. Families are hurting in this recession and lowering the cost of the family groceries or lowering the cost of sending children to college are excellent ways we can ease the burden on working families.
