It is high time for people of all political persuasions to demand real solutions from our elected officials in Washington.
I have spoken here in the past about tax reform. In particular the Fair Tax.
If you consider yourself a Tea Party person-or are just plain tired of the tax code mess-then you need to get behind this proposal!
We all need to demand from ALL the candidates that they get behind this simple,common sense,and truly progressive idea for reforming the way we do taxes in America.
Now some have said that Cain's 9-9-9 plan for tax reform won't work. To that I say bullony! It worked out pretty well in Russia. Yep thats right Russia! And not only Russia but about 19 nations in total have instituted flat taxes,and, in most cases they have had good success with them.
Maybe a flat tax will work in America,maybe it won't,but I think it is well worth a try. It is my opinion that if we could let every American keep more of his or her own money that is a good thing.
If we can reduce corporate rates to 10 percent this country becomes a very attractive place for manufacturers to come and do business,and if ,you add in a flat national sales tax on new goods then everybody gets skin in the game because even people in the underground economy start paying taxes
