  •  Sales tax is regressive - hurts the poor more. (4+ / 0-)

    Poor and middle class spend nearly all the money they earn on goods and services - they have no savings.

    They pay the sales tax on nearly every dollar they earn.

    Rich people save lots of their income.

    Since this hurts the 99% so much more than the rich, what's not to love for the R's?

    It must be killing them to figure this out!

    •  Indeed (2+ / 0-)

      This is so obviously a regressive-tax policy that I can only conclude that Grover Half-Beard is engaged in the most blatant reverse-psychology ploy I've ever seen outside a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

      On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.
