Treasury Sec. Timothy Geithner Says Obama "Does Not Support" VAT for the United States - Video 4/22/10
The White House needs to get their stories straight. Here is video of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on "Morning Joe" today, where he flat out said that President Obama "does not support" a Value Added Tax for the United States.
Just yesterday, Obama was asked about a VAT, and while he did not say he favors it, he did not rule it out. He sounded like a man who was leaving himself room to use it if he wants to.
