    Where I'm at we already have that tax under another guise.

    If you go to the store and buy a watermelon, you pay one price.
    If someone cuts it in half (cuz you can't eat a whole one before it spoils), you pay a lot more for it. Value added.:rolleyes:

    Pelosi argued that the VAT would level the playing field between U.S. and foreign manufacturers, the latter of which do not have pension and healthcare costs included in the price of their goods because their governments provide those services, financed by similar taxes.

    Is this tax applied to only foreign made products? If so, who's responsible for providing/collecting the data? Yet another beaurocratic nightmare that tax payers get to pay for.:mad: Just increase the tarrifs on importing the products.:rolleyes: Those laws are already in place.

    Something's sinister here. And it reeks of control.:mad::mad::mad:

    More taxes from democrats. The VAT or Value Added Tax. The VAT adds taxes at each stage of production. This of course will raise the price of goods significantly. Democrats are trying to make the United States the new socialist Europe in every way.
    The VAT is pernicious because it gets embedded in the cost of goods and it's almost impossible, after a while, to determine just how big a share government is getting.

    We already have a greater tax burden than most any industrialized nation. Do these treasonous megalomaniacs know about King George and his Tea Tax and the Stamp Act? They appear unable to learn from history.

    about 125 years ago, we had almost no taxes of any sort. America was an emerging world power and was financially solvent. Now we have many sorts of taxes and our country is a debtor nation. think about that. too many taxes and too many politicians have destroyed our system. everytime a politician says that a new tax will pay for some project, why does it not happen? where does all the tax money go? why can we not get our money's worth from taxation?

    Hidden taxes are still taxes.

    Lets see the campaign promise of taxing only those over $250k isn't looking real good. Geez you don't suppose they were lying do you?

    Really? You care to quantify that? Have any data to justify that? Perhaps you might want to compare the US income tax rates to that of almost any other nation. The majority of people in this country don't pay any income tax. I think you'd be surprised if you did some research on this.

    This is precisely why we need a flat tax across the board.
    Everyone pays, no one is exempt.
