VWV Note: National Sales Tax just to keep up with Europe? Value Added Tax to fund all the new national programs? What happened to "no new taxes on those who are below the stated $250,000"? Add this to the huge increases of property taxes across the country such as the proposed 50% in Ohio and 42% in Atlanta. Life, as we know it, is sure to change. This time it appears it won't be for the better. Were we the last generation to really enjoy prosperity? Is this the change in America we can hope for? Is this the change you hope to see?
