Letter: FairTax would be good for America

To the editor,

Many folks are concerned by news of the IRS targeting Tea Party organizations. This is a problem with an obvious solution--end the IRS! This isn't as big a task as it seems--there is a bill in Congress right now that will do exactly this. The FairTax Act of 2013 (HR 25 / S 122) will phase out the IRS and the income tax code and replace it with a national sales tax.

I like the FairTax because it is easy to understand, transparent, and it treats all citizens equally. Additionally, research has shown that the FairTax will promote economic growth and positively impact the real wages of normal citizens like you and me. If this sounds interesting to you, you should visit to learn more about it.

The Fair Tax will make the IRS irrelevant and ultimately phase it out. This is another example of how the Fair Tax will be good for America.
