One Step Closer

Is anyone surprised by this story? Everyone of his promises has an expiration date, it has been well documented. The man who finally admitted he was "agnostic" to raising taxes on EVERYONE is now coming clean with his admiration for the VAT. For those unfamiliar with the VAT (Value Added Tax), it basically is a tax on just about everything you consume. Would it be so much to ask for a little restraint on the spending? This being said I do not know how this type of tax would pass any muster in Congress. The Senate in a non-binding resolution voted 85-13 to call the VAT "a massive tax increase that will cripple families on fixed income and only further push back America's economic recovery."

The headwinds for this administration to add anything more to their liberal Christmas list (cap and trade, net neutrality, fairness doctrine,etc.) are quite stiff. The American public is fully engaged and completely aware of what Obama and his radical agenda are up to so the odds are it won't happen. Although at one point I thought the healthcare bill was politically dead in the water. We just have to wait and see the level of arm twisting and how much political capital he is willing to expend.

I have not had the time to write as much the last couple of days so I apologize for just sticking links up here lately. Hope to get to more writing soon.
