Replace All Federal Taxes on Income with the Fair Tax Act , HR 25

Employment Stimulus
Stop Taxing American Labor

Why penalize employers for having workers? All the income and social security taxes an employee pays on wages comes from the employer. The employer must also pay his share of the worker’s Social Security. Then there are unemployment taxes and workman’s compensation taxes because he employs workers. At least two thirds of our nation’s income is derived from taxes on American Labor.

How does the employer come up with enough money to cover these expenses. Obviously, it is included in the prices charged for what he sells. Most all of our income taxes are in reality sales taxes, but only on goods and services produced by American Labor.

Imports, outsourced jobs, and industries that are not labor intensive do not contribute their share to our country’s well being. They would contribute if we replaced our present income and social security taxes with a non-regressive sales tax. The Fair Tax bill, now in congress, would only tax purchases over the poverty level.

Getting rid of our present taxes on labor would lower the cost of hiring American workers and lower the prices of our exports. A tax funded health insurance program would relieve employers of this expense and make us even more competitive in a global economy.

Payroll taxes are just the tip of the iceberg. The feds also tax working capital to the tune of 35% through the corporate income tax. And working capital is what drives job creation.

Your argument is another reason why we need FairTax more than ever. The current Federal income tax system is a completely unwieldy, 67,500-page mess that even the Secretary of Treasury designate and the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee can't figure out, let alone the average American! Is it small wonder why we will spend a mind-boggling US$300 BILLION this year just to comply with the Federal income tax code? (We're not even including compliance costs for state and local income taxes, either!)
