Speaking of stealing, if the Theftocrats want to institute a national sales tax (VAT) why not repeal the sixteenth amendment to the Constitution and eliminate federal income taxes? Opponents of the VAT claim that it places a greater burden on people who have lower incomes. Does the formula that justifies that argument take into account these forms of revenue and tax benefits?
- cost free housing and utilities
- cost free food
- welfare healthcare
- no federal income tax
- (un)earned income tax credit federal welfare check
To make the claim that sales taxes are regressive is to ignore significant amounts of untaxed revenue. The argument is dissembling based upon specious reasoning.
May your gods be with you.
