To the Journal editor:
The FairTax is a plan whose time has come. It would replace the income tax and abolish the IRS shortly after being adopted.
It's a national sales tax and would be collected by the states at the cash register when you check out. No more federal with holdings from your pay check! No more FICA. No more hidden taxes. No more record keeping and no more reporting to the government.
Prices of goods at the store will remain about the same even thought those shelf prices include the tax! Best of all, everyone will pay the tax and everyone is treated exactly the same.
The FairTax is nonpartisan. It's not a Democrat or Republican idea. It's strictly an American idea consist with our founding fathers ideas on taxation. Google FairTax to learn more.
Most important; contact your representative and senators. Tell them to get the FairTax legislation out of the House Ways and Means committee and onto the floor of the House for consideration by the full congress and the American people.
If your congressmen don't support the FairTax, well, the 2014 primaries are only months away.
