There was a lot of stuff we needed from the grocery store and very little of it was food.
Kansas has sales tax on food. I don't know how many states do not but I know of two - Oregon and New Jersey.
I spent ninety dollars and the tax was eight dollars. I wonder where those states without tax on food get all their finances to run the state. We need to have it now to get us out of the hole we were in for a few years when the legislature cut taxes and about ruined us.
So maybe some day we'll have enough in the treasury to remove the tax on food.
