dining tax on low cost meals

For years now a meal costing less than $4.00 at a restaurant has been subject to only a 6% tax.

And for years there were meals at many of these places which came in under the $4.00 mark. So a meal at $3.99 would be taxed 24 cents, [Oops, 20 cets] while a meal ...more »

Education

Public education

I know that this may be far fetched, and yet, this is probably the most important $ expenditure that any Government can make.
