RANT: Here comes the sales tax?

Another Compelling Reason for Secession
The Feds Plan To Stick Us With a National Sales Tax (in a Depression!)
by Lori Montgomery

*** begin quote ***

With budget deficits soaring and President Obama pushing a trillion-dollar-plus expansion of health coverage, some Washington policymakers are taking a fresh look at a money-making idea long considered politically taboo: a national sales tax.

*** end quote ***

Doesn’t anyone see this as the “fair tax”? It was exactly the argument that the opponents made when everyone assured us we couldn’t ossibly wind up with both a sales tax and an income tax.

Sorry to all the senior citizens who paid their taxes and saved, now when they spend those savings, guess what? They get to pay taxes again. Like the estate tax, it’s taxes on taxes.

Will this be the straw that breaks the taxpayer’s back?

    I personally like the Fair Tax, using sales taxes for federal revenue would be fine, but ONLY if they do away with the income tax, permanently.

      Unfortunately, the Fair Tax proponents will accept the “promise” to repeal the 16th Amendment. It’s hard work to repeal an Amendment. I GUARANTEE that we will wind up with both.

      And, paying a sales tax on money that I saved AFTER PAYING ALL THEIR TAXES is unfair.

      Sorry, but it can’t be unwound!
