After everything the Obama administration has done to destroy the American dream the day a Value Added Tax is made law you can proclaim it dead. In typical socialist fashion, Democrats have run out of other people's money and are craving more, but instead of allowing the economy to grow and produce more wealth for everyone they would rather preside over a perpetual recession and gain more control.
A V.A.T. would be like your income taxes doubling after you were demoted. It will be the end of the economy as America has known it and allow the government a stream of revenue that will grow it into an all powerful bureaucracy right out of "1984".
Look, if this is the kind of society you want to live in, go move to Britain or France. Why do liberals always have to ruin their crap and then take mine....whats worse is that they ruin that with the same exact mistakes. The worst is, once America is a socialist oppressive mess, these same insane Marxist jerkwads will go looking for another prosperous place to destroy with their degenerate ideas.
Progressives are mentally deranged....why would we give them control of our lives?
