    Re: Walmart says it will kill plans to build 3 new stores if DC wage bill passes

    Cant believe this thread is still getting replies. how do you libs keep defending the actions of D.C. City Council's when them selves don't pay all their employees the so called 12.50 living wage? How can they justify those actions when they wont follow it them selves? just more left hypocrisy do what i say not what i do

    You know - it just occured to me how funny this is:

    A lot of businesses oppose Walmart's efforts to build in various places . . .they've gone to extreme lengths to keep them out.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    When talking about taxes you can. The only thing dishonest is feigning talking about the tax rate, then throwing in other factors to argue against it.

    Yes. I prefer a very broad tax base with very low rates. The Fair Tax is good but any flat tax that eliminates the IRS is fine.

    Your example specifically showed a graph related to taxes and government receipts. Perhaps, you need to review.

    I want to know why using a retail sales tax is better than a value added tax. Specifics please. TIA

    Tax revenue only.

    I have already told you. If you plan to steal from me you come and look me in the eye.

    A value added tax is intended to lie about the magnitude of the tax and its origins. It is a lie, a fraud, in short it is something a ruler does to the ruled.

    Looking at overall revenue per capita rather than just tax revenue is essential when looking at the history of federal revenues.

    Huh? Perhaps, you should read this What is a Flat Tax? (Surprise! It is a VAT) - Forbes only the so called 'Fair tax' allows deductions on capital--they should call it the unfair tax.
