Sales taxes are a winner......

Yes, I'm going to beat this horse again. Income taxes kill jobs, incentives, and our notion of fairness. The worse idea in history because eventually the politically connected end up not paying........ DUH!!!!

Then the average guy looks around for a way  out of paying so he ends up voting for socialism and not reporting his income. Ultimately we end up not filing a form and the government becomes a gang of enforcers to keep the good times rolling in the capital.

Probably the most egreges is the class of parasites that grow from this tax system. Lobbyist, tax lawyers, real estate groups, tax payer rights organisations, media gadflys, beuracrats,  etc. all making reform or enforcement impossible.

Sales taxes just work. Just go shopping at Walmart in  a sales tax state and you'll see. Buy it and leave. Your paying a bit of everyone's taxes involved in the making, shipping and selling on the sale and then you pay the sales taxes to fund the local government.

Not a whole lot of parasites needed to fund the government involved here. Oh yes, this is the reason it's not going to happen nationally.

Too much bribe money opposing it!! 

TAUBE: Jindal-style tough love could be shot in the arm for GOP - Washington Times

For example, voters will listen to intelligent ideas that can lower personal income taxes and increase annual take-home pay. Support for smaller government is a must. A free-market economy with greater private-sector influence, trade liberalization and increased business and job opportunities will appeal to the American entrepreneurial spirit. Taming the deficit and controlling the debt will win brownie points. More individual rights and freedoms play to the historic — and accurate — position that Americans continue to value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Mr. Jindal is starting to do just that in Louisiana. Last month, the governor proposed eliminating income and corporate state taxes, and increasing sales tax to make up for the shortfall. As he told the Times-Picayune, “For too long, Louisiana’s workers and small businesses have suffered from having a state tax structure that is too complex and that holds back economic prosperity. It’s time to change that so people can keep more of their own money and foster an environment where businesses want to invest and create good-paying jobs.”
