So Much for Obama’s Promise about No Taxes on the Middle Class, Pelosi Says Put Value Added Tax in the Table
How will Democrats pay for their agenda … TAX, TAX, TAX!
Remember when President Barack Obama ran on during the 2008 election and has continually said that there would be no taxes on the middle class? Remember when Obama said that only people who make more than $250 will have taxes increases? We were warned.
Appearing on The Charlie Rose Show, Nancy Pelosi was asked, “Does a value added tax have any appeal to you?”
Pelosi, appearing on PBS’s “The Charlie Rose Show” asserted that “it’s fair to look at” the VAT as part of an overhaul of the nation’s tax code.
“I would say, Put everything on the table and subject it to the scrutiny that it deserves,” Pelosi told Rose when asked if the VAT has any appeal to her.
Folks, a value added tax (VAT) is a national sales tax on all goods made to be paid by everyone. Not just those who make over $250K. It would mean on top of all the other income taxes and state sales tax would come a national sales tax. This is how Democrats look to pay for their liberal agenda. Notice Pelosi did not say no when asked. How else did anyone think that a European type socialist programs were going to be paid for but by European type taxes?
In a recent Rasmussen poll, 67% of American voters say no to a National Sales Tax or the value added tax that Nancy Pelosi was referring to.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi floated the idea of a national sales tax in a recent television interview, but a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 67% oppose a national sales tax on all goods and services.
Twenty percent (20%) favor such a tax, while 13% are undecided.
