So you think that the elimination of a 15.3% payroll tax, a reduction of total income tax from around 12% to 9%, a reduction of business taxes from 15% or more to 9%, and the elimination of the capital gains tax can be made up with a 9% sales tax? That just doesn't add up to me. And never mind that some portion of the business will be driven underground into a black market to avoid the new sales tax.
