how can you have a VAT on ‘some’ people. If it is added at each stage of production, do we have to track each widget produced to know if a ‘wealthy’ person bought it?

The "progressives" are working on that. They'll probably settle on some kind of subsidy for lower income persons to compensate for the VAT's "regressive" impact.

Tax rebate. The same way those that don’t even pay tax get all sorts of money back from you and me!

1. You allow the “poor” to get their VAT taxes back as a Federal Tax credit.
2. You count on the fact that “poor” and “stupid” tend to go together and therefore they won’t realize that as the raw materials themselves got taxed along the way to making a finished product will get folded into the price and the “poor” won’t know the difference.
