Bartlett or his researchers confused Citizens for an Alternative Tax System (CATS) with Americans for Fair Taxation (AFFT) and the FairTax. Make sure you scroll down beyond the letter to the editor of the Wall St. Journal to the headline: “FAIRTAX, FLAWED TAX?” where Neal Boortz addresses that slander in prose only he can write.p>I suggest all read the Fair Tax book. It is quite illuminating. I can’t believe we’ll ever get Congress to give up their power by putting something like this in place, but the idea is out there — perhaps one day. br> — Deborah Durkee br> Marietta, Georgia /p>
Citizens for Fair Taxation (www.fairtax.org) is not now, nor was it ever, associated with the Cult um…I mean Church of Scientology.
A group of Scientologists got together and proposed a sales tax to replace the income tax only. This proposal should not be confused with the Fair Tax, which replaces most, if not all, of Federal taxes with a nationwide imbedded sales tax. By replacing all current taxes, prices would not change a great deal.
Citizens for Fair Taxation is a non-profit group made up of economists and lawyers who spent well over 10 years researching the best way to replace our progressive tax system with an open, free, and self-sustaining tax code that can benefit our economy and every American.
I give Huckabee full credit for supporting the Fair Tax. We need more politicians who do. I will still never vote for him, despite the fact that I want the Fair Tax to pass and be written into law.
Such an open and fair tax policy should be the standard platform of ever conservative. Eliminate the IRS, and we would have smaller government almost by default. Look at those who support the fair tax the most. Realtors support the Fair Tax to a large extent, though the National Realtors’ Organization does not. CPAs support the Fair Tax, and their industry would probably suffer from its implementation in the short run (we will always need accounts, even if we don’t need them for taxes). A large number of lobbying organizations exist just to lobby Congress about the tax code, the National Realtors’ Organization being one of these. One and all, they do not support the Fair Tax as it would put them out of business. And wouldn’t we all like to see a reduction in lobbyists?p>Please, stop associating the Fair Tax group with Scientology. It’s a misrepresentation of this important piece of legislation and the group of very intelligent people who made it, and makes it that much harder to describe all the benefits. br> — Charles Campbell br> Austin, Texas
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
