Not acceptable. Our overall ranking in the country is 48 compared to other states in the country. The median income is only $24,085. which is not very much to live on in New Mexico.

Sales and gross receipts tax is high enough in the state/county, we do not need to tax food and medication.... I often wonder where all the money goes, certainly not to education or infrastructure.

Remember the names of these greedy senators come election time. Tax breaks for the rich. Regressive tax on the poor. Vote them out.

No! We already have high poverty rates. This will disproportionately affect poor families who already struggle to put food on the table.

I don't even need to google to guess their party affiliation, either. Why is it a (and I'm making the numbers up, but the principle holds) 10% tax on food is good sound austere fiscal policy and a 0.10% tax on oil/gas/third wives is creeping socialism? Every time.

They are just obsessed with taxing groceries. They won’t stop trying this until they are out of office.
