  • Sticking to the facts on how we're taxed (YOU ONLY PAY 25% TAX MAX...DON'T YOU GET IT???)

    Sticking to the facts on how we're taxed T.M. Sell [SNIP] The richest Americans do not pay 59 percent of total taxes, and nobody pays nothing. Every American pays consumption taxes, such as sales tax and excise taxes, and every working American pays what are called payroll taxes.... Those taxes take a higher chunk of poor people's income than rich people's, if only because the Social Security tax is applied only to the first $87,000 of each person's income. The personal income tax is called graduated, because the more you make, the more you pay. But the top rate is...

    In my letter to Rep. Linder and Mr. Boortz of August 24, 2005, I pointed out a number of what I called “serious misrepresentations” of the Fair Tax plan contained in “The FairTax Book”. I specifically named many of these by page #. Now that the revised second issue is out, let’s see what they did to these passages in the book: First edition page 55, you go on to explain that these embedded taxes are “in addition to the money taken out of your check in income and payroll taxes.” Second edition- this line was eliminated. This means that...
  • Americans for Fair Taxation Educational and Networking Conference in Jacksonville, Florida

    Americans for Fair Taxation Educational and Networking Conferences It was my pleasure to attend an AFFT Educational and Networking Conference in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, January 21st, along with about 300 enthusiastic FairTax supporters. The cost was $10.00 per person to cover lunch and handout materials, which included a nicely done FairTax Volunteer Manual and a Florida Congressional Contact sp;readsheet. Hosted by David Allen, a local talk show host and ardent FairTax supporter, the meeting was focused on grassroots organizing and creating effective citizen action teams to move the FairTax issue forward in Jacksonville and the state of Florida. Following...

    FairTax promoters are all over the Lake Region. They've shown up at recent Rotary meetings, and at the Keystone Lake Area Business Association. Another FairTax speaker hits the Republican Club next Monday night. The FairTax's first and biggest proponent is Americans For Fair Taxation, which introduced legislation currently before Congress, H.R. 25 and S.25. A number of economists listed on the AFFT's Web site also support the FairTax. Oddly, however, none of them are from the big gorillas of economics schools: Harvard, Yale, MIT, The Wharton School and Stanford University. More popularly visible is "The FairTax Book; Saying Goodbye to...

    <p>One of General Motors key parts suppliers, Delphi Corporation, filed for bankruptcy on October 8th and has sought wage concessions from its Unions to lower the average wage from $27/hour to as low as $12/hour. Wage pressure comes primarily from the low almost slave like wages paid in foreign countries to their workers and those foreign countries being able to export their cheap goods to the U.S. This high cost of wage argument has been a consistent problem and call by American Manufacturers that are trying to compete in a global marketplace as well as compete within the American Marketplace.</p>

    Syndicated talk show host Neal Boortz and Congressman John Linder (R-GA) have joined forces to write a book on the FairTax Plan—a proposal to replace the current system of federal income taxes, corporate taxes, Social Security and Medicare taxes, capital gains taxes, gift taxes, and estate taxes with a national sales tax on new goods and services that does not reduce the government's overall tax revenue. They have never been so right and never been so wrong. Former attorney Boortz is the well-known Atlanta-based "libertarian" talk show host who, like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, spends an inordinate amount of...

    House Majority Leader Signs On To Linder’s Bill Abolishing the IRS Washington, D.C. - Congressman John Linder (R-Georgia) is pleased to announce that he has added more than 20 co-sponsors – including House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) – to his innovative tax reform legislation, the FairTax. Linder’s bill, H.R. 25, would abolish all federal income taxes, death taxes, capital gains taxes, and payroll taxes, and replace them with a national retail sales tax. “The momentum behind the FairTax continues to build, and Majority Leader DeLay’s co-sponsorship is just the latest signal that support for the FairTax is growing,” said...
  • Novak: Bush's tax non-reform

    WASHINGTON -- George W. Bush's chances of engaging the country with a dynamic second-term initiative were sabotaged this week. His own tax reform advisory panel Tuesday reported two plans exceeding the worst expectations. Not only would they be dead on arrival if actually sent to Congress, but they probably stifle President Bush's hopes for seriously reshaping how Americans are taxed. The President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform created 10 months ago released its report Tuesday, and it turned out to have precious little to do with what Republicans think of as reform. Instead of a low flat tax, it...

    FAIRTAX UPDATE There is no doubt that the story of H.R. 25, the FairTax, has been pushed into the background by the Katrina disaster, and perhaps that is as it should be. When hundreds of thousands of people are suffering as they are in the aftermath of Katrina, that is the story. The FairTax is, however, still on the minds of the political class in Washington DC. Congressman Linder tells me that the Republican leadership is more than impressed with the success of The FairTax Book. They have been receiving a steady stream of phone calls, emails, faxes ... and...

    Comment: 50 Reasons I Support the FairTax (How many reasons can you give for supporting the present IRS tax system?) Those Who Know the Facts Love the Fair Tax FairTax and Individuals and Families (Family-friendly tax reform)1. It allows workers to keep 100% of their pay, with nothing withheld the IRS or for Social Security and Medicare payments. 2. It is revenue neutral with the present income tax system, funding the federal budget at current levels. 3. It shifts the tax to consumption. Records show that consumption is more stable than income, therefore the tax revenue stream is likely...

    The self-proclaimed High Priest of the Church of the Painful Truth is power-walking through Concourse B at an impressive pace for a man limping on a recuperating knee. He's on a scouting mission: Are shops at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport stocking his latest book? Is he curious? In need of an ego boost? "Revenge," he says in a voice Atlantans might recognize as either a jolting cold shower of meanness or an invigorating brew of straight talk on the radio. Neal Boortz is a New York Times best-selling author. So, as Boortz loves to say on air, "Bite me." His literary...

    As with the weather, a lot of people complain about the U. S. Tax Code, but few do anything about it. The reality is that the opportunity to do something about the tax code doesn't come around very often; maybe once per generation but now, in the year 2005, we have that opportunity. For the sake of all Americans and future generations of Americans, we must not squander this chance. The President made tax reform one of the main objectives for his second term. He has vowed to reform the tax code, to make it "pro-growth, simple and easy to...
