Subject: The FairTax
Comment: The current tax code has been grossly manipulated to reward elite interests and compliance has become increasingly difficult and expensive. The federal income tax is extremely unfair and unjust to wage earning Americans and the average citizen.
The FairTax is fair to all Americans, and simple to understand. The FairTax bill represents an idea whose time has come. National polls show that more than two-thirds of Americans want fundamental tax reform, and I am one of those Americans. I have read the other tax reform bills being put before you, and I do not believe that any are as simple, or would enhance the productivity of our nation, as the FairTax would.
I ask you seriously to consider the FairTax for the following reasons:
The FairTax offers long-needed tax relief to all Americans, allows us to keep 100% of our paycheck, allows families to save more for home ownership, education, and retirement. It will also protect and ensure funding of Social Security and Medicare, empowers the low-income earners, puts choice and control back in the hands of every American, stimulates economic growth, removes hidden taxes, virtually eliminates the Internal Revenue Service and stimulates job creation.
Thank you for your time.
