According to a recent Fox News poll, an overwhelming majority (76 percent) of Americans think the Internal Revenue Service intentionally destroyed two years worth of emails.
This latest scandal would seem to be the final straw in a long line of IRS abuses going back many administrations, both Democratic and Republican. Why do we tolerate this situation, when there is a simple alternative?
The FairTax is a national sales tax that satisfies the principles of tax policy far better on every count than the current income tax:
It’s simpler, noninvasive, efficient, stable, visible, neutral, encourages economic growth, is broad-based, treats everyone equally and is constitutional
In addition, the FairTax removes the need for an IRS. The tax would be collected by the states, with no concern for income.
President John F. Kennedy said, “The largest single barrier to full employment of our manpower ... and a higher rate of economic growth is ... federal income taxes.”
If you are a person who prefers solutions to merely complaining, start asking around about the FairTax.
Chances are you have a friend, family member or neighbor who knows about it. For more information, go to www.fairtax.org.
