FAIR TAX

How much have you heard, opinions and news, about the fair tax? Is there a way for the ol politician trickery to come about in/with it?
www.fairtax.org (or something like that).
I must be getting tired...good night all.

What I'd like to know is how much the sales tax would go up. The idea of everyone paying their fair share is fine with me, but I don't think I'm going to like having to add on an additional 20% (or whatever it is) to my daily purchases.

You'll like the extra 10,000 dollars a year you have back into your paycheck, depending on what your income a year is of course.

Right now though... I don't see that money. If I have it I tend to spend it.

Right, you spend it and that would be how you pay your taxes. Or we could just hand out Federal Tax bills. What would you do when that bill for $5000 to $10000K comes? Its so easy to take from the American tax payer when they are not looking like it is done now. But I can guarantee a tax revolt if people were handed the bill like how your property taxes are done. It would wake a lot of people up!

Imagine

Can you imagine....making a gross paycheck of $289. per week, and taking home $289.00 a week? Unlike now.....we make $289. gross, and bring home/take home $201.........I sure hope this FairTax comes to be a reality. Or is that reallity? ha Embarassed

Steve Forbes was all over this in the 96' elections but no one took him seriously.
