Head for the rocks and the caves people! McCain did something right. That meteor that's going to hit the earth must be close. More here: McCain Throws Down the VAT Gauntlet | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News. But let's be honest about this. WE ARE ALL ON FIXED INCOMES IN THIS ECONOMY! Any of you out there think you will be getting a pay raise anytime soon, when you are just hoping to hold onto your job? The VAT would kill us (and I mean my family personally). My hubby and me go round and round about staying inside the budget as it is! With a VAT. Oh my gosh. I can't believe I'm saying this, but Go McCain!
