Higher Taxes on the Rich Mean Higher Taxes on the Rest of Us

I've always been puzzled over what "value" is being "added" in Value Added Taxes (VAT)?

President Obama repeatedly assures us that he only wants higher taxes on the rich as part of his class-warfare agenda.

But I don’t trust him. In part because he’s a politician, but also because there aren’t enough rich people to finance big government (not to mention that the rich easily can alter their financial affairs to avoid higher tax rates).

Honest leftists are beginning to admit that their real target is the middle class. Here are a few examples.
