RE :’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.”
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.

(To GOP : Any path to US citizenship IS putting them ahead in line. Stop lying about your position.)
I hope and prey you are correct. We are really in a race against time, IMO. Hopefully, it all unravels and people get angry enough before dependency becomes widespread enough. I know my own health insurance, (once a great plan) is now crap. I virtually am better off paying cash out of pocket many times than using it.
The country really can not afford much more in the way of increased consumer prices. many things have doubled since Hussein took office as it is. I just returned from a month in Sweden. I first started living and going there about five years ago. Five years ago, I was in abject shock at the consumer prices of everything there. Now, we are nearly on par in many cases. In some cases, I was finding certain things cheaper there. We are already taking it in the shorts and getting nothing in return. Absolutely nothing.

(Plannedopolis-look it up. It's how the elites plan for US to live.)
