Well if we are going to do away with the IRS I would much prefer a flat tax. A sales tax cost too much to regulate and operate.
A sales tax also makes merchants tax collectors which I consider immoral.

(The welfare state must fail because it is contrary to human nature and diminishes the human spirit.)
Flat tax still does not have all citizens skin in the game...a sales tax would (and the mechanism is already in place in most States [45/50 IIRC]). Plus, as it’s a line item on the bill, it’s easy to see what gov’t is costing and requires NO collectors (IRS); biz remits to State, State remit to Fed
I have the same feeling about employers being tax collectors; let alone ‘H.C. providers’.

(Give me one example and I will show where gov't is the root of all problems.)
