Sic Semper Tyrannis: Proposed Va. Grocery Tax Cut But a Return of a "Token Drop"

Virginia sales tax on groceries looks as though it will decrease from 4.0% to 2.5%. Sic Semper Tyrannis aptly observes:

Now that the tax collectors in Richmond realize they have taken much more of the people's money than they need, they have decided to return a token drop to the empty bucket and keep the rest.
