Wow, I just found your blog post and am in agreement with your views. I also feel that a phase-in of the Fair Tax rate over a 10 year period, corresponded to an incremental decrease to our tax code liability would be in the best interests both the Fed and society. This will provide real numbers per year that could be crunched and allow for an orderly transition reducing the possibility of unforeseen hurdles causing mayhem to our economic fabric. Also, allowing for the transition of IRS employees into lateral employment via retraining or placement. This need not be a brutal and combative attack on the Federal funding apparatus but a complimentary and civil process that is fruitful to our way of life. As we progress through the transitional period, we will be better able to determine the Tax Rate required to sustain Federal programs and functions. Making adjustments to the Fair Tax should not be a cumbersome task either, it should be an adjustable component of the code. My concern is that the majority of our elected brethren may find this sudden change as too disruptive...causing its languishing in the halls and eventual death over time. So, let us consider the tact that all would like to see the dismantlement of the IRS as the norm and foster its phase out in a civil and just fashion. This will entice further acceptance and exponential Co-Sponsor support thus ensuring that H.R. 25 will not be short lived but a true heroic American accomplishment to usher in the the 21st century.
