Why in the world is the GOP the party that's introducing new taxes?
Given a choice over the current tax system or this Fair Tax sham, I think I prefer the former. (Of course, I'd rather have no taxes.) Fair Tax sounds good but they're likely going to just raise taxes across the board.
A 25% VAT will starve low and middle class families, reduce overall consumption, and dramatically reduce imports. So we'll have nothing to consume until we transition back into a manufacturing economy.
