Now Rahm "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste" Emanual's brother want's to saddle us with a VAT tax. This article confuses the VAT tax with a national sales tax, which is no surprise. Expecting a reporter to get the facts straight is, well, like expecting a reporter to get the facts straight.
I'll offer a deal on this issue: Repeal the 16th amendment to the United States Constitution and do away with the IRS. After that, I'd support a national sales tax. Not a VAT tax, but a sales tax. We can argue about whether health care or food should be taxed later, when we are arguing about whether all current employees of the IRS should be blacklisted so they can never work for the federal government again.
Heck, I might even go for the VAT tax if the 16th Amendment could be repealed and the IRS disbanded.
