I agree, Mr. falen -

In fact I brought this up a couple times over the past couple years here on 

We should eliminate federal income tax altogether and simply adopt a 2% to 
3% federal sales tax addendum to each state's sales tax.

As it is currently, if a business entity purchases something for use by that 
business entity, the purchase is exempt from state sales tax.  We can 
maintain the status quo on that, and simply not allow ANY exemptions to the 
federal sales tax addendum.  In effect it would drastically reduce, if not 
eliminate the national deficit within a reasonably short period of time.

Europe (Germany, in particular) has been imposing a federal "value-added" 
tax for quite some time now.  Perhaps we should follow suit.
