mrgoo: "By no means am I trying to create a political debate what I was curious what folks think of a flat sales tax being sold as a FairTax. For reference check out: http://www.fairtax.org/site/PageServer?pagename=HowFairTaxWo...... "I am with Peter, the question alone is political.I think FairTax has multiple problems: 1. It disguises its rate as 23% all inclusive, when it is really a 29.87 sales tax rate. 2. It will require a Constitutional Amendment. no easy task. 3. It is very regressive. 4. It relies on a lot of untested assumptions regarding its revenue neutrality.Among others.Regards, JAFO
