Hey idiot, go pull your head out of your rectum so your Brain Cell can get some fresh air and function. Obviously you are a liberal troll that has gulped down the leftist koolade and can no longer think.

The value-added tax is a pernicious levy.

It’s basically a hidden form of national sales tax, imposed every time a transaction occurs at any stage of the production process.

But what irks me about the VAT is not its design (indeed, it shares some key characteristics with the flat tax). What gets me agitated about the VAT is the fact that politicians always seem to treat the tax as a way of financing a larger burden of government spending.

That’s certainly what we’ve seen in Europe, both when the VAT was first implemented beginning about 45 years ago...
