I thoroughly enjoyed the subject in your Opinion column of June 22 about ending the food tax.

For at least a decade, I've been requesting our governors and legislators to remove the food tax, which I call sin tax.The people who can least afford to pay the sales tax on food will spend the savings on purchases for other needed items, which will partially compensate for the loss of the food tax.

If necessary, a very slight increase can be made on all other items to compensate for the loss on the food tax.

Thanks for your article to remove the sin tax.
