I love a consumption tax-- tax consumption, not work or investment. But a consumption tax that is progressive and reported by filing a return is better than VAT. That approach also avoids black markets (payors report your income, your bank reports your savings and the difference is consumption). It is normatively desirable to increase the salience of personal taxation, after all.

This country and its citizens need a VAT like Custer needed another indian...

No we don't need a 'progressive' consumption tax...

Why should anyone person have to pay more than any other person in this country?

That is one of the glaring problems with today's income tax structure, the rich pay more but they don't get more for the money extorted from them...
