Another Reason to Vote For Mitch Daniels.

"This [Indiana Governor Mitchell Daniels’ support of a VAT] is outside the bounds of acceptable modern Republican thought, and it is only the zone of extremely left-wing Democrats who publicly talk about those things … Absent some explanation, such as large quantities of crystal meth, this is disqualifying. This is beyond the pale."

Thus spake Grover Norquist, GOP lobbyist and "thought leader." Why a value-added-tax is "beyond the pale" has to do with idiotic Republican orthodoxy which you can read about here. Inevitably, the US will adopt a VAT to help pay down its debts.
