Seriously Nancy you have your face screwed on too tight.
VAT TAX for real? How is this not raising taxes? A VAT tax is a consumption tax in addition to income and other taxes. A completely new burden coupled with Cap and Fraud which will amount to a tax.
HOW ABOUT just the FAIRTAX but no that put the power in the consumers hand. UNREAL....They want us all living in abject poverty, Cloward - Pivens ?
