For instance, the 1st line of the 1st one says:
"Does adding 30% to the price of every house sold sound like a good idea to you?"
That's a lie in the very 1st sentence. Not every house sold would be FairTaxed. Only brand new houses would be FairTaxed, and that also makes no effort to figure in the fact the the prices of all the new houses would fall because of the 35% corporate income tax that would NOT be collected on every piece of material, and every construction company / subcontractor that worked on the house. _All_ those people would be charging lower prices, before the Fair Tax is applied.
And, it doesn't matter what the tax rate needs to be for parity, the statutory rate of the Fair Tax is 23%. If it isn't enough, well, the Fair Tax law sunsets in 7 years if the 16th Amendment is not repealed. If the Fair Tax isn't working, just keep the 16th Amendment, and go back to the income tax. Simple.
Last year, there were only 142 million income tax returns from a country with about 305 million citizens and probably 20 million illegal aliens. How can that be? Because, there are a hideous amount of people that are NOT PAYING INCOME TAX. The income tax is one of the easiest taxes around to avoid. Anyone can do it, from partially hiding money by doing jobs for cash and not reporting it, to under-reporting and flat out hiding the whole amount, especially in overseas areas. There's $10 - $14 trillion in American money that is overseas, and it is there, both legally and illegally, to avoid the income tax.
Collecting taxes on a whale of a lot of people that are not paying income taxes now, and under-paying income taxes, by taxing them when they buy their fancy cars and big screen TVs, and even nailing the illegal aliens when they buy a Big Mac, will cause the rate to be the predicted 23%.
And, lets not forget the tourists. The Fair Tax taps the tourist trade of between 45 and 56 million tourists each year. If they each spend $5K while they're here, and that is probably low, well, that is a lot of extra money at 23%. Its billions, in fact.
The Fair Tax causes taxes to go down for the people that are currently obeying the law, and causes taxes to go up for those that are not, as well as opening some new sources.
