The fair tax WOULD work; don't believe the lie that the poor would pay the most. The rich buy more stuff (and more expensive stuff); don't let anyone tell you otherwise! Stop the government from reaching too far in your pocket by supporting the truly fair tax: ABOLISH THE IRS!!
The 1 percent vs. President Obama by Chrystia Freeland. Increasing taxes for the Filthy Rich might make sense if the added funds actually went to benefit the nation instead of the connected elite of which Obama and his supporters are well entrenched members of. If we are going to tax the rich why not the Super Filthy Rich non-profits. If you can pay college football coaches million dollar salaries, you can afford to pay local taxes to help moderate income taxpayers. It's only fair.
