Is the FairTax really Fair? Import verses USA Product

Today we pay our federal wage tax, the employer puts the tax into the price of the product, we buy the product and pay our taxes again and no one benefits, but the import as it does not have federal taxes embedded and can outbid USA manufacturing easily, thus all our jobs since free trade have gone overseas.

It would be fair for the American worker if his job was not hindered by federal tax structure.  By going to FairTax we move the tax out of your paycheck, out of the price of product and put it equally on imports and domestic product.  Yes, the Fair Tax.

Obamacare & IRS are ended in 1 day by FairTax -Letter to Congressman Bentivolio

To Congressman Kerry Bentivolio, 

It must be a real challenge to stay ahead of the DC Shadow power. We have a new awareness that will possibly be what it will take to win the day. Obamacare can be repealed by eliminating the IRS and FairTax does that, ends both. Add to that the follow up of States' Sovereignty turning most regulations into advisories and constitutional conduct applied to federal spending. 

We can also transition SSI and Medicare back to the States with the advise to enact mandated State HSA/IRAs, privately owned and local investment an option. That will be a seamless transition with FairTax ending payroll deductions. Local investment will be a must for what FairTax will do for our economy.

Insist that a line be added to the FairTax HR25 and SR122 that when federal revenue exceeds a certain surplus, the FairTax rate be reduced, allowing for slow reduction of our debt.

Please endorse FairTax HR25. FairTax takes the Federal Government out of the controlling of our Economy, meaning the Capitalism of Free Enterprise will Flourish, bringing about the best possible price of goods to the market. Yes, FairTax will have an unbelievable effect on Corporations. They will be allowed to grow and thrive, something they must now bribe congress to do.

22% of the American Product is embedded federal tax and 29% on average for service. The reduction of Domestic Product Price will be about 17% for Product and about 24% for Service. The remaining 5% that is not reduced is due to the worker keeping their gross pay. The average family cashflow will see at least a 11% increase in buying power.

Why would this be so if FairTax is a tax neutral shift in structure? Because we will no longer be taxed by wage and then have to pay for that same tax again when buying American. Yup, right under our collective nose. Wonder why? I think it might have to do with our killing of babies. Anyway, we can fix that too after this big step. FairTax will make individualism popular again!

"[T]he FairTax entails either a significant or a substantial reduction in the remaining average lifetime tax rates for each income category. The two-adult, two child household with annual income of $20,000 would pay on average 2.4% of its remaining lifetime income to the federal government under the FairTax compared to 7.1% under the current income/payroll tax system – a 67% decrease. The same family with an annual income of $50,000 would pay 11.3% of lifetime income in taxes under the FairTax compared to 17.6% under the current system – a 36% decrease. And finally, the same household earning $500,000 would see taxes as a percent of lifetime income decrease from 35.9% under the income/payroll tax system to 21.1% under the FairTax – a decrease of 41% [!]"

"Although everyone pays the same tax rate [23%] at the cash register, the chart below shows that the effect of the "prebate" is to increase the actual [effective] tax rate (annual taxes paid as a percentage of annual spending) as the level of spending increases, a progressive tax rate structure. For example, a person spending at the poverty level ($31,020 for a family of four) has a 0% effective tax rate because the annual prebate of $7,135 refunds all of the taxes they paid in their annual spending of $31,020. Whereas someone spending at twice the poverty level has an effective tax rate of 11.5%, and so on. Annual spending would have to be in excess of $14 million per year to reach the statutory rate of 23%."

AFFT calls on Congress to eliminate IRS targeting by enacting the FairTax® Press Release


AFFT calls on Congress to eliminate IRS targeting by enacting the FairTax®.

HOUSTON, TX - May16, 2013 - Americans For Fair Taxation® (AFFT), outraged by the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) continued political abuse and intimidation of citizens and organizations, is calling on Congress to immediately enact HR 25/S 122, the FairTax® Act of 2013 and phase out the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). "No person or group is safe from IRS targeting; everyone is a bull’s eye," said AFFT spokesperson Cynthia T. Canevaro.

She added, "The agency, with over 90,000 employees and an annual budget in excess of $12 billion, has historically been the ultimate tool of extreme political manipulation by politicians of both major parties. That’s exactly what our Founding Fathers feared."

"These types of abuses of are nothing new," said Dan Mastromarco, tax attorney and co-author of HR 25/S 122. He added, "In 1819, Former Chief Justice John Marshall warned in McCulloch v. Maryland that, ‘An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy.’ The FairTax Act is the only way in which Congress can once and for all eliminate the harassment, political exploitation and selective enforcement against perceived dissidents. It levels the playing field and redistributes power to the citizens who pay the taxes."

The FairTax Plan is a comprehensive proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll based taxes with a national retail sales tax, a "prebate" to ensure no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level, dollar-for-dollar federal revenue neutrality and, through companion legislation, the repeal of the 16th Amendment, which authorized the creation of the income tax.

"Congress has enabled IRS activities with more than 5,000 code changes in just 11 years, and even expanded their scope to include enforcement of major provisions of Obamacare," said Canevaro. "Congress created this problem. They now have an opportunity to correct it by enacting the FairTax Plan and asking the President to join them in signing the measure into law."

Indoctrination in Common Core ELA Texts

Make sure your school is not using curriculum materials from Zaner Bloser. Their new Common Core centered text books actually walk 1st graders through the process of selecting word choices in their sentences for the explicitly stated purpose of manipulating their parents to increase their likelihoods of getting what they want! The whole thing is indoctrination, from the 1st grade on, promoting democrat hogwash and subliminal concepts of moral relativism. I've never seen anything so infuriating for a 1st grade classroom!
