Subject: Complete Tax Reform

Comment: The only tax reform that makes sense is complete tax reform. As a retired CPA who has filed hundreds of tax returns, I have studied the proposals in detail. A change from taxing income to taxing consumption had many far reaching advantages. The Fair Tax Book by Neal Boortz and Congressman John Linder is an excellent place to start, as is the website hosted by Americans for Fair Tax. I watched CSPAN the other day of our panel discussion. It was obvious to me that John Breaux and others do not understand the Fair Tax and have not taken the time to do their homework. The American taxpayer deserves better. I urge the President's Advisory Panel to reconsider the consumtion tax alternative as presented by Fair Tax and legistlation before the House Ways and Means Committee.
