A Return to Food Taxes

Leave it to the republican lead state legislature to target food tax increases as one of their most desirable ways to raise revenues in this state. Take food from the mouths of children and people on fixed incomes before raising the taxes on the rich in this state.

Take teacher income and financing for education and dismantle public education before ever taking one penny for a rich republican in this state.

This Thursday the governor’s budget balancing taskforce will be meeting from 1:00 until 4:00 pm in the Leon Hams Youth Hall at Expo New Mexico. The voting public should make the attempt to let them know that these types of measures would harm working New Mexicans and should be off the table before they take food off the table of hard working New Mexicans.
