Boost the sales tax on food

Why in the world would we want to remove the sales tax from food? It is probably the only fair tax left in this overtaxed state. Most of the poor in Utah are the undocumented workers, and this is the only tax they pay to support the free clinics and government assistance programs they have overloaded.

We should increase the tax on food to 8, 9 or even 10 percent and then give tax credits to all legal residents.
