It will go much further than taxing the rich. That may be their public words but in reality the costs of everything are going to increase exponentially probably with the addition of a VAT tax. It will start off small but once their client base ( the 49% and oldsters) is addicted to the idea of their medical care they will agree to anything to keep it. I'd imagine like most of Europe we will end up with a VAT somewhere in the 20% range.

Eating out, new clothes, etc. will all become luxuries. We are headed in that direction already.

I dont see Dems proposing that anytime soon, maybe the cap-and-trade VAT like tax on carbon fuels, that one seems to float their boats.
