RAISING SALES TAXS. As a form of fair taxes? LMAO Raising sales tax is still giving tax breaks to the rich because they can still afford to purchase but making a family of four existing on $20,000 pay sales tax is not fair. He is still paying more than taxes than the rich. Sales tax even out the playing field? Many American dont pay any taxes? Is it fair taxation to tax the poor at the same rate as the rich? A family of four making $20,000 should not pay any taxes and they are the one not paying any taxes.
