Well, now. Look what the Obama regime quietly floated yesterday while we all spun our wheels on Sotomayor and GM’s imminent bankruptcy.
Ladies and gentlemen, please, for the love of all that is holy: start the avalanche of faxes, letters, and phone calls to your representatives right now. A value-added tax must not be allowed to roost in the United States. It is pernicious and forever (hence the title of this post).
A national retail sales tax might not be a bad idea, but it must come only with the abolition of the income tax, which would mean the repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment.
(Naturally the VAT discussion includes no such provision, and I suspect it’s comical to hope for any prospect of such.) Actually, you know, come to think of it, I’m sure it won’t happen. Why, Obama said only the rich would see their taxes go up, right?
Folks, enough. Let this be when you finally get sufficiently pissed off to raise hell.
