What it's all about
: The Book
The Book, "The FairTax Book", written by Right-wing radio talk show host Neal Boortz, is the basis for and Bible for a recent right-wing Cult-like movement to replace the current US tax code with a national sales tax.
We suggest you familiarize yourself with it by purchasing or borrowing the book from your local library. We want you to be as informed as possible so that you can make a logical decision based on facts, and not on party loyalty or hype.
We consider the FairTax to be nothing more than a Smokescreen for a huge tax cut to the wealthiest Americans and a Gigantic tax Increase for everyone else to make up for it.
As you read, ask yourself what you would get from this plan if it was ever made into law. With critical thinking you will find that the FairTax is not only a Lie and a Scam,
but it will throw many Americans into Permanent Poverty. We believe the FairTax plan taxes hard work - the sweat of our brows and the toil of our labor - while at the same time it makes free welfare money (inheritances, gifts, and capital gains), that wasn't worked for and wasn't earned, completely tax free.
The FairTax INCREASES the Size of Government making all who sell or trade part of the Big Brother network.
This new tax bill gives the government additional powers to rule the poor and literally grants additional rights to the wealthiest people in America. George Orwell would have been proud
The FairTax is ANTI-FAMILY. The FairTax penalizes poor families for buying Food, Clothes, shelter, and Medical care by taxing All the basic Necessities of life.
These things are NOT taxed right now (and shouldn't be) but they ARE HEAVILY TAXED under the FairTax plan. Remember this when you get barraged by a FairTax supporter that says the prebate will give you a portion of this additional tax back and you should be grateful to the new Big Brother Government for giving you anything back. The FairTax bill penalizes those who live paycheck to paycheck taxing every dollar spent to make ends meet while UN-TAXING the rich and wealthy who live off of inheritances, trusts, gifts, and old money.
Interestingly enough, none of the $20 million plus spent on research material mentioned in the book has ever been published for review
According to other sources Leo Linbeck Jr., a Conservative Texas Billionaire that inherited his wealth from billionaire daddy Leo Linbeck Sr., is the man behind the FairTax.
His two collaborators were Billionaire Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and attorney/Houston Industries director Jack Trotter.
They are all huge donators to the right-wing Political Action Committee known as "Club For Growth" and the Republican National Committee......"
