An interesting idea

I approve:
The Liberal government is struggling over whether to bury Premier Dalton McGuinty's new 13 per cent harmonized sales tax in the price tags of goods and services, sources told the Toronto Star.

Insiders say there is mounting pressure on McGuinty to follow the lead of such places as the United Kingdom, where the price tags on items displayed in shops incorporate the retail price and a 15 per cent value-added tax.
I don't see what the argument against it is, really. It would make shopping easier, and if you can't figure out which fraction of the price is the tax, then please wear a bib to control the drool.
