CATO Institute Senior Fellow Dan Mitchell and UNC School of Law professor William Turnier weigh in on the proposed value added tax. They agree that a V.A.T. is bad for the country and the real way to solve our economic problems is to decrease the size and spending of Government. If they add this new tax it will mean bigger government, more out of control spending and more corruption. The Bigger Government gets the more Freedoms and Rights Americans will lose.
