From Mike Huckabee:

Tax Day is rapidly approaching. As Americans prepare to give an unfair and growing amount of their paychecks to the Federal Government, our mission is clearer now more than ever:

Folks, it is time we put the IRS out of business.

Together we can accomplish this goal if we work hard to elect a record number of candidates to Congress this November who support the Fair Tax or who are willing to learn more about it.

But before I explain how we do this, let me first – for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Fair Tax – briefly explain how it works.

You get rid of income tax.

You get rid of all the withholding.

You get rid of corporate taxes completely, totally. After all – those taxes are not really paid by the corporations. They’re passed on to the customer with a 22 percent embedded tax in the system.

You eliminate that, which means the prices of what you purchase will go down.

You replace it with a 23 percent consumption tax. Now, that sounds expensive, but you only pay when you purchase something new, whether it’s a product or a service.

Also, it’s a completely transparent tax system.

It doesn’t increase taxes. It’s revenue neutral. It will bring business back to the United States that leaving our shores – our current, complicated, unfair tax laws make it impossible for an American-based business to compete with lower tax structures in other countries.

Political insiders will say something this "sweeping" will never be passed. They’re wrong! With your help . . . it can – and it will.

I urge you to sign my petition to the Republican candidates running for Congress. Help us reach 50,000 signatures by April 15.

I have signed this petition and I hope and pray that you will add your signature next to mine.

Editor’s Note: You can also learn more at FairTax.org.

    1. @ChrisB, The attraction for me would be not having to report income, not having to do income taxes (at the federal level), nobody gets out of paying them, etc.

      But you are right I’m not interested in it if it is added to the rest. You have to get rid of income tax. Go to http://www.fairtax.org – they explain it way better. I wouldn’t complain if we went to a flat tax either provided it was no more than 10%.
