This has been discussed on the Tax Reform board at length and I really don't want to get into a dust-up here, but--

Do you really think the difference between $20K and $600 is that much out of line?

The fairness here is a sales tax assures that ALL will pay at least some taxes as opposed to the middle and upper income class paying all the freight, as is the case with our national tax code.

Everyone in this country should be willing to pay something to provide for the freedoms our nation provides for them. There should be no free lunch in my opinion.

Florida's sales tax provides such a system and I, for one, like it that way. You pay your few pennies with each purchase which is not painful. April 15 is no different from any other day of the year.

Our national income tax, which is a dinasaur and a morass, should be scrapped and a national sales tax adopted in its stead.

End of rant.
