I HOPE YOU ARE TELLING THE PRESIDENT WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND AT WH.GOV. I HAVE WRITTEN HIM SHORT NOTES ABOUT 7 TIMES AND THIS IS MY LATEST NOTE;
Dear President Trump,
Congratulations on your great speech to the joint session of Congress. You hit a grand slam Sir! The reason I am writing you today is again about a tax plan that best serves most Americans. Mr. President, Governor Mike Huckabee tells us that we are spending nearly $1 trillion a year in the administration and compliance of our current tax system. One must agree that is a lot of money to take out of the economy that produces very little if anything at all. By shifting your plan to a consumption tax like HR 25, The Fair Tax Act, this savings could be accomplished and much, much more. They tell me that there is around $2-3 trillion that could be repatriated if there were no tax. Without income based taxes, I truly believe our economy would mushroom and very quickly.
One of my major concerns Mr. President is, what if some other country beats us to the punch. We both know that second place is first loser. The country that makes this move first will gain the most benefits. I hope sir, that your advisors, have the intestinal fortitude to make a really significant tax change. The proposed flat income tax is somewhat better, but it keeps taxing labor, savings and investment and keeps the Internal Revenue Service with it's almost 100,000 employees. To fix this tax mess, we need to throw out all 75,000 pages of the tax code and procedure, and end the IRS. Mr. President, many of your supporters are already supporters of the Fair Tax Act, and we hope we can persuade you to take a closer look before you arrive at a final decision. Perhaps you could talk with Congressman Rob Woodall, of the 7th District of Georgia. He is the sponsor and worked as former Congressman John Linder's Chief of Staff and is the man to talk to. Congressman Woodall is a real Patriot and exceptionally well versed on taxation matters. If the two of you were to talk, I know it would be a very productive conversation on behalf of all Americans. President Trump, I believe that you are the only person in our government that could shepherd such a bold and sweeping change to rid us of our current archaic, oppressive tax system.
Mr. President, I supported and worked for you long before most Americans thought you had a chance and am proud of what you are doing. Regardless of your decision on taxation, I want to thank you for listening. God bless you and the first family.
