What you are inherently saying is that taxes on business are inherently a form of national sales tax. Maybe those in favor of the national sales tax will oppose Mitt.


Not really as a sales tax is pushed at the point of sale for a percentage of the good purchased. What you have here is a tax $3,000 per employee, so it's not a percentage but a fixed number.

But in the end even if we did switch to a national sales tax to repalce the income tax the Republicans and Socialists would still fight over what the rate should be. One side might want 10% while the other 20%.

But don't worry, Obama said it was a penalty not a tax...until it was litigated, then he called it a tax in court briefings...then once SCOTUS ruled, he said it was a penalty again, not a tax. He flips and flops more than any President.
