I agree that a consumption tax would be favorable to an income tax, but 23% sales tax on food sounds like a bad idea to me.
I did hear what he was saying about it really being no different because the other taxes are no longer coming out.
I suppose prices would come down as companies used their newly found margins to compete in the marketplace. In the interim I think a lot of people would be having trouble putting food on the table.
Perhaps not, but 23 cents on every dollar is a lot.
