national sales tax, is nothing new, varies politicians already try it, it will not work.
It is not a fair tax. once some candidates was promoting 17% straight flat sale tax, and do away with the IRS codes. It will not stop top 1% super rich people on spending, they can always go out of country, but for sure, will hurt the bottom 40% of people thats already been struggling.
for many many years, I was completely for it, but after I got in the landlord biz, I had never realized how many disadvantage people struggle in the bottom, an additional 9% sales tax, will only hurt them more.
national sales tax, will open up a new can of worm, soon or later, it will be 10%, 11%, 12%, NO MORE NEW TAXES!!!!
yes, I don't pay any federal income tax, and little state tax, but I pay our fair share thru property tax, I am not only paying for my kids education, but also another 200 kids education, we are paying 12% of my gross receipts for property tax, another 9% will just break not only me, but all landlords back.
