Just as with the Texas Republican Party, Congressman Tom Cole, Oklahoma’s 4th District, calls for a National Sales Tax. This includes elimination of: “incomes tax, gift tax, corporate tax, capitol gains tax, payroll tax, and property tax.” Wow! sign me up. Who wants to pay taxes? Wait a second, reality is knocking…
Dang it, this “NO TAXES” business sounds great till realization sets in to spoil it all. Just who will be paying the taxes under this plan, aka bamboozle? Along with listening to what Tom says, one must listen to what he is not saying: Tom forgets to mention that the greatest burden will go to the poor and it would place a greater burden on cities and counties that rely heavily on sales tax. Cost at the check out stand, I salute thee as you go up the flag pole.
