Comment: While the income tax is

(See in situ)


While the income tax is

a monstrosity in a so called "free society," so would be a "fair tax." Funny, when ever some horrible legislation is trying to gain some head way, it has a mild mannered name that sounds good for the public, ie patriot act, or white house grounds improvement act, or now the "fair tax."
I could never support a tax on goods or services provided by the private sector for the federal govt. The fair tax is also one that can be adjusted just as the income tax is now. The fair tax could be 8% tomorrow, 10% next year, and 35% in a decade. If anyone is to do the taxing it should be the state govt's, the federal govt should stick to the rules and follow article 1, section 8, clause 1.
