Wouldn’t it have been great, if some years ago, the Fair Tax had replaced the current income tax code? Tom Daschle would now be Secretary of HHS. I was not amused about the recent federal tax problems of this and other Obama nominees. The chairman of the house ways and means committee has some tax problems as well. One has to wonder how these politicians are ignorant of or avoid the tax regulations they write.
How convenient that their tax problems are said to be the fault of a “tax accountant”. If those tax accountants can’t get it right, how does an ordinary citizen get it right? How may other politicians and lobbyists have similar problems not brought to light?
There is a better option for collecting federal taxes and eliminating non-compliance with the tax code. I refer to the Fair Tax. Information about the Fair Tax can be found at fairtax.org. If after reading about the Fair Tax and realizing some politicians don’t pay “their fair share” of taxes, join me in contacting our representative and senators in support of the Fair Tax bills, HR25 in the House of Representatives and S296 in the U. S. Senate.
