Peter,When I started in taxation so many moons ago, there were 3000 pages. A bit daunting but, the challenge bit me hard. Now there are over 12,000 pages. The complexity boggles the mind. The purpose of a national sales tax is to eliminate thousands of jobs like mine where we are underpaid for interpreting the law and applying it to particular situations.As long as you have educated professionals fearing the loss of their jobs, this change will never occur. It would be too easy and yes, in my opinion too fair.I do not believe food should be included, ever. Nor services. Then it becomes somewhat of a luxury tax.The buyer truly can afford to pay and the soup kitchen keeps on keeping on. And saving/investing is truly encouraged.This assures that I'll never have to worry about being elected to public office which under the current system reduces my potential for higher income and the payment of more taxes. So either way, I win.yours truly,Jessica M. Mason
