No. Sales tax disproportionately taxes the poor more. This is not a solution it will be a societal problem for those trying to scrape by. A national flat tax that taxes the rich at a much higher level then they are now is the answer. No tax on the first 30k or so? 75% on the top 1% 50 on the top 10%? These groups make a tremendous amount money on the backs of the lower 90%. People should be taxed accordingly. A sales tax is NOT the answer.
