Bingo. A sales tax is regressive. This is NOT inherrently true. State sales tax programs are regressive, but that does not have to be the case. The (horribly named) FairTax is not regressive in nature because of the rebate checks that everyone receives regardless of income or spending level.Calling sales taxes regressive is the kind of quick one-liner that does a disservice to everyone.Acme
