I thought I would just throw this out to the general membership.
One of the basic tenants of the FairTax is that it will replace the already embedded taxes on the costs of goods and services, thereby having no or little impact on the pricing of the same goods and services after implementation of the FairTax. Everyone here should know this talking point - producers/manufacturers will lower their prices in such a way that the price of their goods while be about the same.
Yet, I have seen and heard arguments that these same producers and manufacturers could also offer pay raises to their employees, increase benefits to their employees, add more employees (jobs) and even increase the amount of dividends paid to their stockholders. This is what anyone would call "having your cake and eating it too". Seems to me that we've gotta be consistent - either drop prices or do all of these other goodies, I don't think there's enough room to do both.
