Rasmussen Finds Opposition to National Sales Tax is Strong
"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 37% of voters nationwide favor a national sales tax if the money is used to pay for health care for all Americans, but 51% oppose that idea. These findings are unchanged from December.
Take health care out of the equation, however, and opposition to a national sales tax on all goods and services is higher. Only 22% favor a national sales tax as a way for the government to raise more money, while 60% are opposed. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided"
"If the creation of a national sales tax eliminates the need for a federal income tax, support for the sales tax increases to 47%. Thirty percent (30%) are still opposed, and 23% are not sure."
