    but it appears to be almost totally regressive. On what bizarre theory would this be good? A VAT.  Employee funded OASDI. And, the key, the NBRT, undefined, vague and unclear, untested out in the real world and generally understood to be simply another way to create a consumption tax without clearly identifying it.

    One hopes that this is as DOA as it was in CA when Der Governator proposed it her.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
