Re: Bush Says National Sales Tax Worth Considering

Do you really feel that that ship will ever leave the dock?

In Oregon, everytime a sales tax was brought up by the governor, he was defeated in the next election.

You'd think, that by adopting that scheme we'd get rid of the income tax. Ha! Fat chance. We'd have both.

It's just another red herring in the political stew.

Bush says it's an interesting proposal. What a joke. Let's face it. You don't want, I don't want it and neither does anyone else. Here in Arizona with state, county and city sales tax we pay as high as 10%. Adding in the national sales tax you'd be up to 20-25%. Wow!

Who'd get to vote on the rate? I guaranty neither thee or me.

Consider your next new car. Sticker price $25,000. With National, State, County and Town sales tax possibly $31,250.
