The unintended and intended failures incurrent Federal Tax Code are sufficient grounds to support passageof HR:25 The Fair Tax Bill!

Federal Government intervention hasdestroyed or driven many U.S. Based businesses and their related jobs to other Countries. The U.S. Congress has lost control of the IRS. The Constitution means nothing to many in the U.S. House and Senate. No Constitutionally required Federal Budget has been passed in years! Vote buying by those with the money to influence elections for personal gain and further prostitution of Our Representatives and Senators is rampant! The perversion of Federal Tax Code has destroyed the idea of Citizen representation and "equal" taxation originally instituted by the U.S. Constitution. Most of the current Congress continues to support an IRS strangle hold on every U.S. Citizens throat!

The past and current goals of these corrupt Federal Representatives and Senators consist of talking about the same failed Federal Tax ideologies. Their goal is to stir up discord and discontent between Citizens of different income levels. Unfortunately this tried and true tactic continues to divide and conquer Citizen opposition to the current failed Federal Tax Code. It is time for the Citizens of the United States to wake up! We must not continue to allow our self centered thinking to divide us. The current intimidation imposed by the Federal IRS must stop! Citizens will continue to suffer under the current out of control oppressive Federal IRS until we choose to stop the abuse.

A few so called Representatives who are Members of the House Ways and Means Committee are leading in this continued perversion. Their collective decisions and control have lead to constantly increasing Federal Taxation. Representative Camp is the ring leader in these efforts. He and the other Members keep HR:25 locked up in Committee. He and his henchmen are responsible for stopping any substantive debate concerning HR:25 on the House floor! These Controllers in Congress fear HR:25 because they know it will return us to a Constitutional "equal" Federal Tax System. HR:25reinstates the original intent of the Constitutions' "equal" requirement specified by the original wording of the U.S.Constitutions' Article 1.

The 16th Amendment perverted the concept of Citizen control as it pertains to Federal powers of Taxation. HR:25 is the only tax related Bill before Congress that requires repealing this mistake. False pretenses were used to fool our grandparents and parents into passing the 16th Amendment. They made the mistake of trusting the Federal Governments Representatives. We the People are now subjected to a Federal Tax Code that serves no purpose other than lining the pockets of the Snake Oil Salesmen in the U.S. Congress!

The current failed Federal Income Tax must be pulled out by its corrupt roots and thrown on the trash heap of Failed Government ideologies. Our Representatives and Senators who fail to tell the truth concerning HR:25 must be replaced! Do not make the mistake of posting your vote in favor of a Republican or Democrat in up coming elections, both Parties are responsible for our current failed Federal Tax System. Both Parties promote division between Citizens. Please vote for Candidates who support and will demand passage of HR:25.

There are currently 71 Members of Congress willing to tell the truth. They are the Co-sponsors of HR:25 / S:122. Don't be fooled by the "Flat taxers"! Study our history and you will find the 16th Amendment and our current failed Federal Income Tax were both sold to our parents and grandparents as a "Flat Tax" on the top 1% of income earners! There can be no substantive, effective change in Federal Tax Codes without repeal of the 16th Amendment

Please don't take my word for anything stated hear. To discover the truth about our failed Federal Tax Code and the positive attributes of HR:25, go to www.fairtax.org or http://thomas.loc.gov/home/LegislativeData.php?n=Browse. Read the Bill for yourself, it is only 131 double spaced typed pages long. Yet it totally replaces the thousands & thousands of pages making up our current failed Federal Income Tax Code!

In Reply to Jim B (Bennett?)

Jim B.1. The flat tax does not eliminate the enforcement mechanism and can morph right back into today's tax code.

Me: NOTHING will ELIMINATE the IRS. My Flat tax (10%, NO deductions, Exemptions, credits)virtually neuters the IRS (FT makes the IRS ORE INTRUSIVE).

JIM B: 2. The flat tax makes it more likely that we will end up with both.

ME: Just the opposite. Congress can easily repeal the FT's Sunset Clause (and don't hold your breath

awaiting the repeal of the 16th Amend)which makes the enactment of the NEW Income Tax very easy.If we stick with an IT, it will be more difficult politically for Congress to enact a sales tax for the 1st time.

Jim B. 3. The tax base for the flat tax is more volatile, hampering responsible government budgeting and funding for Social Security and Medicare.

ME: We all budget based upon our income AND spending is also volatile. I have no sympathy for govt spending problems.

Jim B. 4. The flat tax directly taxes reinvested earnings and indirectly taxes esports.

ME: Taxes reinvested earnings ??? If it does tax exports (probably LESS than it does today) so be it - let foreigners pay our taxes.

Jim B. 5. The flat tax does not effectively get at the shadow and underground economy and consumed wealth.

ME: There will be much less tax evasion at a mere 10% rate AND that evasion will be far less than the evasion of the FT with 320MM Americans doing everything they can to avoid the 40-70% sales taxes.

Jim B. 6. The flat tax is a difficult political sell. Albeit for good reasons, the flat tax taxes wages but leaves investment income untouched.

ME: Any major change spooks Congress. My Flat tax is LESS scary to Congress than the drastic changes proposed by the FT.

Walker spends his entire pitch on how terrible the current IT system has become - a major selling tool of the FT marketing team.

We have no argument with getting rid of the current IT, so that sales pitch is unnecessary and it distracts from the real issues.

Essentially, the FT pitch is that a new very Flat IT cannot be trusted because the 1st IT evolved into a monster. The reality that Walker slips right by is that EITHER proposal (Flat IT or FT)is EQUALLY exposed to mischief by future Congresses - it is up t us to keep a better vigil on the rascals in Congress than we have in the past.

If we enact the FT there is a much better chance that we will wind up with BOTH a FT AND a NEW IT - there is LESS of a chance of that happening if we stick with a very Flat IT without ever adopting a consumption tax like the FT.

Walker is selling for the national FT marketing group.

The “Fair Tax” is a Fraud – we need a 10% Tithe!

This is from a retired CPA, with no financial interest in ANY tax system. I can support every comment I make with much detail.

The so-called “Fair Tax” (“FT”) is a fraud – it is Karl Marx on steroids AND a Bernie Madoff financial scam.

In their own words, FT proudly advertises that it INCREASES WELFARE via its Prebate.

The FT hits us with a 40-70% in-your-face retail sales tax that would spark a taxpayer rebellion that would destroy our 70% retail-sales-sensitive economy. 40% = 30% FT e.g., 10% State sale sales tax and 70% is the rate needed at a sample 30% FT evasion rate (the FT incredibly assumes ZERO evasion and ZERO intentional reduction in spending).

IN ADDITION to that 40-70% tax, the FT contains several HIDDEN TAXES.

The NEW IRS will be far worse, far more invasive than today’s IRS – we may well have to file an “Annual FT Summary”.

We may well wind up with BOTH a NEW Income Tax AND the FT.

What we need is a Flat Income Tax with No Deductions, No Exemptions, No Credits and a 10% rate.

Call your representatives in Congress and let them know that this is what you want.

StephenC is a fraud. He is a big government progressive. He know that HR25, The FairTax Act of 2013, will transfer more power from Washington DC to the people of this country than any other tax proposal out there. There is no proposal now in Congress that promotes a 10% flat tax. It's a smokescreen by StephenC to make you think he actually wants to cut taxes. The FairTax has over $20 million of research behind it. StepehenC's 10% flat tax has $0. Do as the author of this piece suggests and go to fairtax.org and do your own research. You'll find out how the people of this country will benefit under the FairTax and that StephenC is trying to mislead you. Also, read an article by Lousis Woodhill on the Forbes web page which was written on Sept 18. It corrects a couple of flaws in HR25 and should be used to perfect the law as written.

Despite Buckley's rantings to the contrary;

I am a disciplined very-limited-fed-govt Constitutionalist.

HR 1040 currently proposes a Flat Income Tax, but with a 17% tax rate and a $40-46,000 family exemption, which I(and Dr. Ben Carson) propose to amend to 10% and no exemptions.

The AFFT's original propaganda said it spent "$20MM on research AND MARKETING" and but its later propaganda simply dropped the words "AND MARKETING". Those of us who actually reviewed the AFFT "research" find very little "research" but tons of MARKETING (which has been ineffective over a 15 year period). Even the son of the original late-financier, has told the AFFT to essentially

forget the FT bill (H.R. 25) and spend their efforts on getting the 16th amendment repealed (LOL), but the FT "faithful" just can't seem to accept reality.

For those of you who are interested, you can review Buckley's unique mental pathways and Saul Alinsky tactics on various FT blog sites.

I "graduated" from the flat income tax. A 10% tithe has the same problems. Here's why.

1. The flat tax does not eliminate the enforcement mechanism and can morph right back into today's tax code.

2. The flat tax makes it more likely that we will end up with both.

3. The tax base for the flat tax is more volatile, hampering responsible government budgeting and funding for Social Security and Medicare.

4. The flat tax directly taxes reinvested earnings and indirectly taxes esports.

5. The flat tax does not effectively get at the shadow and underground economy and consumed wealth.

6. The flat tax is a difficult political sell. Albeit for good reasons, the flat tax taxes wages but leaves investment income untouched.

The FairTax(R) addresses all these problems.
