VAT tax - I say yes but ONLY as a complete replacement for income tax and with NO freekin exemptions period. Start the exemption game and the bribes and "special treatment" for political donors and organizations begins.
A "national sales tax" on everything is 100% fair. Rich spend more than poor, everyone will pay their fair share always.

For the record....we should NOT do a VAT tax which will wipe out what is left of our manufacturing and cater to foreign imports.
