The issue is that the poor spend almost all of their income on things that would be taxed, while the rich invest and hide away their money. Thus, it can be argued that a sales tax disproportionately favors the rich. You can see an indirect proof of this by the fact that more conservatives favor this method, as it "makes the freeloaders pay their share" in their minds.

Ahhhh the prebates.

Let's do away with those archaic impossible to understand tax laws so we can replace them with archaic impossible to understand prebate laws.

ive seen a couple of those that offer tax breaks per child, but would that simply do the same thing those on the right claim welfare checks do? encourage the poor to get pregnant?

also ive heard mentioned that certain "life necessities" would go untaxed but of course have never heard what those are and judging from the history of the wealthy in the united states it wouldn't be long until yachts and golf clubs and stag parties in the dominican rested on the same level as cucumbers.

Ahhhh the prebates.

I don't know about yachts and stag parties but golf clubs are DEFINITELY a "life necessity." So we should all get prebates on them.
