    A VAT tax is the worst idea in this already overtaxed nation.
    I support a VAT 100%...right after federal income taxes, SS, medicare, self employment taxes have been abolished and a flat corporate income tax of 2% has been put in place.

    That way everybody has, "skin in the game".

    That's too damn high, Rev. I pay less than that gaming the system. Before I would support a flat tax, it would have be bekow 7%.

    Re: Obama suggests value-added tax may be an option

    Rev; 17% across the board is far to regressive.

    apdst; a market orientated economy requires stabilization policies in which to maintain short run feasibility. 7% just does not cut it. Not to mention it does not help to reduce the enormous debt burden.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    On the contrary, it is you who posts on the basis of utter bitterness. Everything you utter functions on the basis of "I hate Obama".

    And no.... It's not funny or amusing.

    They need to cut back on the bull**** spending. There, problem solved.

    Re: Obama suggests value-added tax may be an option

    in the context of TODAY's economic and political landscape, usa, 2010, a vat can only be seen as radical, or extremist

    any contemplation of elimination of the current tax structure compensatory with vat is purely academic

    ie, completely unreal, merely imaginary, aint never gonna happen

    vat is radical, extremist and, given its almost violently REGRESSIVE nature, unamerican

    but, of course, obama needs the money

    party on, progressives

    be proud

    Re: Obama suggests value-added tax may be an option

    yes, never forget that for obama to achieve, make real, what he wants to make happen, he needs money, planetary sized sums of money

    instead, all he has are solar system sized debts, liabilities, entitlements, service costs, unfunded mandates, fines, fees, obligations...

    what's an ambitious obama to do?

    what is wrong with a regressive tax? It will spur people to work harder and get out of the swamp of mediocrity
