    According to Neil Cavuto of Fox News a National Sales Tax is going to be coming along in the very near future. I don't have much info on it because it was just a small segment of information on The Cavuto Show just before he signed off today. Isn't this a fine kettle of fish????? Got to love those Democrats and their wonderful ideas! This isn't a tax to replace the current Federal Income Taxes such as was discussed in the past. This is in addition to our present taxes! :clap2:

    he.he.-- that is the "bait & switch" routine that is always played out by the democrat party. Actually what our "dear" leader promised was a no "income tax hike". He never really stated that he wasn't going to raise other taxes--he.he.he.--or should I say make new taxes with new policies.

    Not only is the "national sales tax" may be coming to a store near you--

    but employee health benefits that they get paid for by their employer will be taxed as "income."

    There are links all over the place about this.

    This won't be a tax on the middle class, because they will have free healthcare.

    Follow the bouncing ball, drones...

    The problems are going to multiply, that writing is already on the wall:

    Sovereign Woes - Megan McArdle

    IRS tax revenue falls along with taxpayers' income - USATODAY.com

    Meanwhile, in the FT, John Taylor warns that our national credit rating is in danger:

    Well, coming out of the Bush administrations overspending to the tune of $6 trillion added to our debt, and Obama continuing that trend with this crisis.... I don't see how any of us can not see that taxes will have to go up, to help pay for what we have borrowed and spent....

    I don't like the idea of adding a tax or raising a tax here and there, cigarettes, sales tax, liquor taxes gas taxes etc....I'd rather see it be in one place, for all people, like in our income tax structure....not hidden in ones purchases.

    Care, there are not going to be enough tax hikes to pay for what is going on. What the above says about the Boomers is right on.

    Care

    Ever think enough is enough and the SPENDING is what should be addressed, not additional taxation?

    That's what I don't get with these drones. They bash the Bush era spending and cry about the debt, but then want to put the pedal to the metal on spending, anyway. They want their free healthcare even if it means driving the country over a cliff.
