Let's try this again. The video was interesting until the maker stated that "more civilized countries" include the sales tax in the shelf price. Set aside the fact that they are collecting a VAT, not a sales tax and that they end up paying a great deal more, we need visible taxes. One of the problems with the income tax is the method of withholding that makes people think they aren't paying as much because they "get money back" when they file their taxes. We must have a visible sales tax so we know what we are paying.
