Mr. Obama can get their taxes in America?


VAT is potentially a huge source of revenue that would allow the left to finance welfare policies of European dimensions without batting an eyelid. After all, the imposition of VAT would give America a European-style tax system.
It 'clear, however, that the introduction of VAT would generate a storm of opposition. The Democrats are committing political suicide by pushing a scheme of taxation of this kind, since such a measure would end up penalizing the poor and the middle class. And this is why the Left desperately needs more gullible Republicans storyteller, and convince them to follow the way of a tax increase.
Give effect to the tax would be doubly advantageous for the U.S. left. The revenue from new tax revenues would make it much easier preservation of the welfare system, and it is not difficult to understand the reason why the Democrats insist that the body takes a tax policy like this. But the political benefits would be significant for the left. I expect a couple more, and the inevitable consequences if the GOP leadership decided to focus on a text bipartisan approval of the federal budget, ending up indirectly supporting the introduction of VAT.
1 - There would be a civil war inside the Republican Party. The vast majority of politicians in the GOP campaign pledge not to have to raise taxes. Some of them are clearly very sincere - of course - but many of them genuinely believe in a strong defense of the rights of taxpayers. An agreement on increasing the tax would create a very divisive trench, similar to that which occurred in 1990. First good point in favor of the left.
2 - The Conservative voters would rebel against the establishment of the GOP. When the Republican leadership commit wrong decisions, usually the electoral base of the party enters a phase of disillusionment. Some members of the GOP in Washington DC do not attach much weight to this possibility given that in their opinion the voters "do not have many other options." The voters would still have the option to boycott the polls as they did in 2006 and 2008. Not to mention that they may also have a third opportunity to vote as in 1992. According good point in favor of the left.
3 - Put on the table to the left of the VAT would be the perfect opportunity to impose new taxation by class struggle. Because of the zero-sum game mentality in political circles on Capitol Hill, there is a strong tendency to maintain the current "distribution" of the tax burden. This means that VAT is perceived as too discriminative so much for the poor that the middle class, would almost certainly associated with some form of punitive taxation to direct taxpayers to the most productive of the nation. This brings us to the third point in favor of the left.
In short, the tax would be a disaster for the U.S. fiscal policy. Would, by itself, transform the U.S. into a welfare state style of Greece. And for those who care about the political future of the GOP, their complicity in the damage to the eyes of voters.
Fortunately there is a very simple way to stop this ominous possibility. The Republicans should just say no. At the risk of saying something obvious, it is possible that a VAT is imposed without the GOP will give political cover to Democrats. In fact, it is quite unlikely that any increase in tax burden from now on, can be fielded without the necessary political Republicans provide the margin of victory.
They can also be "Stupid Party". Another issue that becomes self-destructive fools. Even more so when there is no plausible argument to justify a tax increase.
