    • On January 09, 2013, by molonlabe - Eliminating the IRS only to create a national sales tax will eliminate one bureaucratic leviathan: the IRS, only to create another bureaucratic leviathan which will collect the national sales tax. We should work to repeal to the personal income tax and replace it with nothing.

    • On January 18, 2013, by raichu - I am certainly not prepared to just do away with taxes. They finance almost all of our government programs, many of which are beneficial overall. Perhaps the money can be administered better, but that's no reason to just get rid of tax revenue.

    • On February 12, 2013, by asimp4444 - molonlabe, This Act does not "create another bureaucratic leviathan". The already existing U.S. Treasury collects the federal sales tax from the states. From FairTax.org, where you can review the bill as well as other information about the tax... "Retail businesses collect the tax from the consumer, just as state sales tax systems already do in 45 states; the FairTax is simply an additional line on the current sales tax reporting form. Retailers simply collect the tax and send it to the state taxing authority. All businesses serving as collection agents receive a fee for collection, and the states also receive a collection fee. The tax revenues from the states are then sent to the U.S. Treasury."
