USA Today had a pro VAT Tax letter to the editor.

It was from an economist and I did clip it but now it is MIA.

What are your views on VATs.

Taxing value seems a tad trublesome to me.

Is not having a vat part of the USA econ being the largest econ?

The problem with tax reform isn't the proposed replacements for the income tax, it's that the government would never give up the income tax, they'd just add the new tax on top of the income tax.

The marginal tax rate of these small business owners is expected to rise from 44.6% to 62.4%. At those rates, small business owners will change their behavior. (if that happens then small business owners have a right to change there behavior) Embarassed

Is it myth or fact that income tax was almost maxed at 10% but the law failed cuz of concern that if they limited taxes to 10% it would get that high.

Saw that T.E.A. stands for taxed enough already.

The one think I know is that my tax burden was less when I made 45K then when I was grossly under employed.

I'm stilli in favor of a progressive tax system. Perhaps a limit of 50%. Not as nice as 10%.

Just like individuals, the more you have to spend the more you spend. Whether it be actual money or credit money.

But with out debt could we have financed WWII? Where would Hittler have stopped if we didn't help stop him?
