Do you lose any sleep thinking about FairTax or other national sales/consumption tax programs? It would clearly require taxes on money withdrawn from a Roth xyz and then spent on consumption.

I don't lose sleep over the FairTax because I have a better chance of winning the lottery than it being implement. As for other sales/consumption tax programs, I do that has a better possibility.
