Double-Speak, Indeed: It Is a SALES Tax

Jib makes a valid point.

...Do not refer to [the Obama Administration's] newest pet money-suck as a value add tax. Please, please refer to it for what it is: A sales tax. Every time you discuss this idea, do not let the administration win the rhetorical battle. Call it the sales tax that it is...

Because, of course, it IS a sales tax, levied at every single level of the commerce-chain.
