An opening big to drive a Presidential delivery truck through

So, Bush calls the idea of raising our taxes by over 400% an interesting idea? No, it's way further, what Bush said was, I'm not exactly sure how big the national sales tax is going to have to be. Bush is saying that a national sales tax will occur, and that it's just a matter of how big the tax increase will be.
What more could Kerry possibly want for sparking a debate against Bush on the economy? The increased tax isn't just upon lower-income families, taxes would rise for the middle class, small business too, and basically, everyone but the very wealthy, or my base, as Bush likes to call the elite.
Kerry said, a national sales tax would have to be "at least a 26% add-on" to the state and local sales taxes Americans now pay. These taxes average 6.2%. This whole Swift boat thing is a matter that most swing voters couldn't give a spit about; but start talking to them about their taxes being raised 400% by Bush, that'll get some attention.
