I know..I know... It is from activist post. I am sure it would have more credibility if it would have come from The NYT...

One thing is sure. When we moved in USA in June 2000, we were spending 70$ per week on our grocery for 2 adults and we had steaks 3-4 times per week. Now, we spend 130$ per week and we only buy meat when it is reduced. If we are lucky, we eat steaks once a week and we no longer named brands. This is at least an 8% inflation per year.

I am not a Mormon, but I can tell that you should have a home food reserve. In the last year, I saw movements in the food price and quantity that I never saw before. For example, the mini raviolis have an average of 3 ravioli less in the box than before. That means more water to keep the same weight. Who noticed that???? I guess no one count the raviolis...hehehe. I do because when I am almost done with my meal, I give one to each of my dog. Sometimes 2.

Well then , let's be sure to encourage the GA Legislature to reduce state income tax (especially on the wealthiest Georgians) and reinstate a sales tax on groceries because after all, it's a "fair tax". Everyone can decide whether or not to spend, especially old folks, buying groceries, on a fixed income and all. :screwy:

If I recall in yesterdays AJC they were talking about exactly that.

I'll try to find the story.

I'm pretty sure the gentleman realizes that with the FairTax prebate that there would essentially be No taxes on food especially for old folks buying groceries on a fixed income and all. The proposed monthly prebate (as determined by DHHS guidelines) of $208 would not eliminate any taxes on my groceries but would pay about 75% of my monthly grocery bill.
