Letter to the Editor

By Roy T. Newsom Granbury

Fair tax

Dear Editor,

Congress claims they have to avoid going "over the cliff" financially while they continue to kick the can down the road. What a joke. The 100 year old Income Tax is a bismal failure. It is unfair and the only ones who benefit from it are congressional lobbyist and congressmen on the take. The Fair Tax HR25 and S13 will replace the income tax with a fair consumption tax by eliminating the IRS.

All tax measures must originate in the House Ways and Means Committee. The bill has been shelved there for more than five years without a vote. It is time to pressure our Representatives to do the right thing and move this bill out of committee and on the floor of the House for a vote.

Anyone doubting the Fair Tax only need to realize what would happen to the economy if every person received their full paycheck/retirement every payday and every busines never has to report anything to the IRS ever again. Think it through and support the Fair Tax.
