Enact 'FairTax'

July 3, 2013 

Wow! The IRS is targeting particular groups or individuals. Wait until the IRS involves itself in the national health care law.

The politicians in Washington, D.C., give lip service to simplifying the tax code. What they really mean is it's time for special interests groups to open their cash accounts and fund the politician's re-election. The politicians will then amend the tax code with "loopholes" that benefit those special interests. Later, the politicians will denounce the use of these "loopholes."

There are bills in Congress (HR25/S122) that would eliminate the impact of the tax code on all citizens, groups and businesses. Tax exempt status for groups such as churches and nonprofits would be a thing of the past. Individuals would realize more take home pay once payroll taxes are eliminated. All citizens would pay their "fair share."

The IRS would be greatly downsized and the politicians would have less control of our incomes. If you want to see the federal tax code simplified, write your member congress and senators to request that they support the fair tax bills mentioned above. Check out the website fairtax.org to learn more about a truly revolutionary tax reform. fairtaxnation.com is another great website.
