Time is now for the Fair Tax


The Fair Tax is an idea whose time has come.  The Congress, both House and Senate, Republicans and Democrats, has demonstrated time after time an inability to restrain itself with the public purse. The Congress simply can’t govern effectively as long as the income tax is in place.  Even the “fiscal crises” legislation passed by the current congress added $74 billion more to the deficit, all to favor special interest groups.

In order to save America, Congress must be denied the instrument of its folly, the income tax.  A solution has been filed away in a drawer somewhere by the Congress for more than 10 years. It’s called The Fair Tax. It’s neither a Republican nor Democrat idea but truly an American idea!

If adopted, the Fair Tax would replace the income tax, repeal the 16th Amendment and annihilate the IRS. Within one year, America would experience unprecedented econometric growth, and thousands upon thousands of new jobs would be created.

Contact your congressperson through his/her website; insist that he/she do everything possible to bring the Fair Tax proposal to the floor of the House and once there, to support it. Large numbers of citizens must demand the Fair Tax if we are to have it.
