LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fund food tax cut with gambling money

By The West Virginia Record | Jul 28, 2011

Dear Editor:

Since the West Virginia Acting Governor now is proposing to reduce West Virginia's repressive and regressive grocery tax by another one-half of 1 percent during the special session, will our legislative leadership be proposing an amendment to completely eliminate the grocery tax and fund that proposal out of the previous $100 million giveaway (over 10 years) to the gambling clip joints?

I surely hope so.
