Boy, you sure are dumb. Do you think maybe Steve Forbes goes out to eat? Buys a car or two?Buys fancy audio/video equipment? Buys a house or two? It doesn't matter HOW he MAKES his money, he's taxed when he SPENDS it! Like everyone else.<quoted text>
So what you are proposing is a flat federal sales tax on all consumption to replace the income tax.
Boy do they have you buffaloed! Like Steve Forbes' "Flat Tax". You know what that would have resulted in: People like Steve Forbes who make 99.99% of their money off of investment income, paying virtually NO tax.
This is just a pathetic scheme to help the rich get richer all under the guise of being fair because everyone pays the same rate. Ever heard of the term "regressive"
Keep searching and making false claims like every liberal does, but there is no conflict in anything I've said. There have just been expansions and more clarification in each later post.
