HST needs changes

I think it is more of who and what is taxed to a person. I noticed not a tonne of things are not exempt from HST. I am just starting my life out in the real world for the first time in my life. It is not easy or cheap! I pay my bills and get things I need for everyday living and I would say most of my receipts have tax added to them. The only thing I noticed is a few items in the grocery store that are not taxed. My bills are always payed on time, but the government is taking big chunks of money out of my account, money that can go to bills, food and transportation. I would like HST to be not only a lower per cent, but I would also like it to be exempted from more daily life products.
