What a liberal means by ‘nothing is off the table‘ is that they will consider as many new ways as possible to get more money out of us. Very rarely does a liberal cut spending unless they are shorting the military.

President Obama said Tuesday that “everything has to be on the table” as his newly appointed debt commission goes to work, but he would not entertain questions about whether tax increases, included a value-added tax, or spending cuts will get serious consideration.

“We’re not playing that game,” the president said.

Among the proposals that have generated attention recently is the idea of a value-added tax, a form of a national sales tax. Though Obama has indicated an openness to considering the tax, he said Tuesday that he would not indulge in any speculation.
