5/12/10 GOP Leadership Press Conference

Also, House Republicans introduce resolution opposing the VAT
A value-added tax would damage the economy and hamper job creation, House Republicans said Tuesday.

Several House leaders along with more than 80 other lawmakers introduced a nonbinding "sense of the House" resolution today opposing a VAT on top of the current tax code. The Senate recently approved a similar resolution.

"A European-style VAT will only further the catastrophic cycle of tax and spend government in Washington," House Ways and Means Committee member Wally Herger (R-Calif.) said in a release today.
Wonder where Bill Foster was on that vote.
