Is this a backdoor way to have government takeover of healthcare?

So much for not increasing taxes on any family making more than 200k. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is putting a value added tax (VAT) – and other taxes – on the table. To be clear, Pelosi is not suggesting replacing the federal income tax with a VAT, but she is strongly suggesting the elimination of all employer-based health insurance and pension plans.

I think a massive new tax is just what the Dr. ordered for our ailing economy. Gee, that Pelosi’s bright.

We has massive unemployment, people are losing their homes, the country is all but bankrupt and “The Chosen One”, along with our elected thieves, are selling parts of America to those who wish harm on us and now you have this moronic POS wanting to have another tax.

They better look around, that last straw is getting very, very close to breaking the camels back. I fear that it will not be a major event but a small minor event that will cause the entire country to say, “That’s Enough We’ve had All That We Can Take” and the sh*t will hit the fan.

Pelosi just popped Podesta’s balloon on us and now we can see exactly what it is filled with-—and its not confetti.

Pelosi’s a dumb drunken bitch.
Pardon my language but only the craziest of lefties knows damn well that inflation would spiral out of control with a VAT.

It's called 'fascism.'
Fascism dovetails business & government sectors into a single economic unit, while concurrently increasing in-fighting and distrust
Are we becoming a fascist nation?"

Hell you would be talking an annual inflation rate of at least 25%...probably much more.

But according to Biden, the greater the inflation rate the better it should work - you have to spend money to get out of debt, right? Ergo...

Canada put in a national sales tax a while ago, to “pay off the debt” doncha know. Since it was fiscally responsible, the “progressive conservatives” signed on.

The thing passed, the “prog. conservatives” got annihilated (lost all but TWO seats.

Oh yeah, and the money was spent on other projects and the deficits went up.

But....but....President Jug Ears told me that “you’ll be able to keep your own insurance.” Shep Smith screams at people when they say different.
