Subject: Income Taxes

Comment: I feel that using a federal sales tax would me much fairer (VAT as in Europe). A wealthy person would pay more because he selects higher priced houses, cars, restaurants, clothes, etc. Persons with less money would pay less tax because they would buy less expensive items.

This is a fair system - each person would have some control of his tax. The IRS could be eliminated in its present form (a large monetary savings). The tax woud be on-going. Tax would be paid at the time of each purchase - no end-of-year large payment due.

Please consider using this method of taxation, a much fairer tax system.
