"That is right....they are politicians 1st!
Any campaign promise or belief that a candidate will act in our best interest is a joke!
Each party knows the benefits of the FT I am sure! When I speak to my rep and my old Senator, they give lame excuses…"
"> When the Republicans had both houses of Congress and Bush in the white house why didn't they grab the FairTax bill. They even got so far as to have a commission to study tax reform. That commission wouldn't even give the FairTax a…"
"But I see it as the Repub's will always be like the Dem's because they all are Politicians FIRST and they have too many lobbyists who will line their pockets.
