Pelosi also was critical of a Republican proposal that would establish a national sales tax.
Pelosi called the proposed national sales tax, co-sponsored by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, a mistake that would raise the cost of a $20,000 car to $26,000.
They are starting to have to tax mroe and more in order to sustain the debt it has dug itself into. Soon the USD will no longer be the standard at which oil and other commodities are sold. The currency will fall in value in comparison to others. Since the US is a giant and bloated consumer this will make your imports more expensive. This with the new taxes (read your paycheck goes to the government) needed to keep the economy alive everyone will becomre poor. Like depression poor. Have fun!
