The Dems and this Administration already have a VAT tax and Energy tax in the planning stages. Nancy Palosi let thecat out of the bag a month ago... The VAT tax will not replace the income tax as it should. Imagine a VAT tax and Carbon tax on top of our income taxes...And the Administration has to get this done before November... This is total insanity! How much will the 50% of of us who actually pay taxes have left over of our earnings as disposable income after all this shit?...I guess we will all just buy less...Imagine an eventual 20% VAT on a car purchase or big ticket items like appliances, electronics..etc..
