Washington is taking a "fresh look" at the value-added tax, which would impose a new levy on every level of production all the way to the consumer. With deficits soaring, a 10% VAT levy might just tempt policymakers, who see it as a way to pay for national health care. They'd better consult the voters first: Our own IBD/TIPP Poll finds voters ­- regardless of party - overwhelmingly oppose a VAT, either as a supplement to our current income tax or as a replacement for it.
