    Oh, well an OP/Ed speculating, that carries some weight doesn't it.




    Obviously they have never submitted a budget to you if that is the case. Anytime I have ever submitted a cost projection for any type of initiative, it started with showing what we would be eliminating or what efficiencies were to be gained by it.

    You can't complain about a VAT tax increase until one is actually proposed.
    We are still under the Bush tax cuts. Obama is working to remedy that, though.

    First, there's no law, sociological or otherwise that says one cannot complain. about anything at any time. Second, the complaints are that a VAT is being considered which is in 100% in opposition to the pledge Obama made. Which he has already broken 100% - even if VAT never comes into being.

    PolitiFact | No family making less than $250,000 will see "any form of tax increase." - Obama promise No. 515:

    So I'm sorry to say, you're way off.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Nothing has been actually proposed. If you replaced the income tax with a VAT tax, you could potentially reduce taxes for those under 250k a year. So far, those under 250k a year got a tax cut under Obama.

    He has yet to propose eliminating the Bush Tax cuts for those under 200k a year.

    I thought that sentiment had changed to BOTH parties.

    A rebate is a tax cut. You are arguing semantics. If you pay less in taxes than you otherwise would, that is a cut.
