Tell Congress: Pass the Fair Tax Act of 2017!

Messages Sent So Far

The current federal income tax system is clearly broken — unfair, overly complex, and almost impossible for most Americans to understand. 

But there is a reasonable, nonpartisan alternative before Congress that is both fair and easy to understand. A system that allows you to keep your whole paycheck and only pay taxes on what you spend.

It's called the FairTax. Introduced in the U.S. House and Senate as H.R. 25 and S. 18, respectively, The FairTax is a national sales tax that treats every person equally and allows American businesses to thrive, while generating the same tax revenue as the current four-million-word-plus tax code... and without the I.R.S.

The Fair Tax Act of 2017 is the only tax replacement plan before the U.S. Congress that: 
 

  • Eliminates all federal income and payroll taxes including personal, gift, estate, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security/Medicare, self-employment and corporate.
  • Eliminates the need for businesses and individuals to file federal income tax returns.
  • Eliminates over 74,000 pages of Internal Revenue Code and the estimated $350 billion in annual compliance costs.
  • Defunds, disbands and eliminates the Internal Revenue Service.
  • Favors American businesses and workers over foreign corporation, and dramatically increases the rate of economic growth and job creation.
  • Brings American jobs back to America and generates employment opportunities for the hundreds of thousands of chronically unemployed.
  • Repeals the 16th Amendment and direct taxation through companion legislation.

Take action and tell your U.S. Representative and Senators to co-sponsor the Fair Tax Act of 2017. Add your name in the fields below to proceed to send your no-cost letters.

If you can't understand how the current tax system is broken, then it is patently clear you are completely out of touch with the constituents you claim to represent. You have already highjacked the new plan with cries of "Oh!!! The 1%, the 1%!! Honestly, if that's all you morons can focus on, you aren't seeing the forest for the trees. In your hatred of the 1% (oh which most of you Congressional people are members) you continually screw John Q Public Instead, why not put your efforts and votes behind something that would really stimulate this economy and country. Vote for the Fairtax because frankly, I getting awfully tired of putting $5.00 in my pocket but when I go to pay for a damn cup of coffee, Uncle Sam has already had his hand in there and taken the majority of that $5.00 bill. Do something right, for Pete's sake, for the people of this country. Pass the Fairtax.

Maybe we should mass-mail in our copies of Boortz / Linder The Fair Tax Book to President Trump as our "signature petition" to pass the Fair Tax Plan H.R. 25

Enough of the progressive tax system where those at the top pay the vast majority of the taxes and those at the bottom receive more than they paid in. Too many rules and regulations make for a bloated unfair system. It's past time for the FairTax.

There are more consumers than income earners. The FairTax makes more sense. It's the only tax reform I'll support.

Preparing a speech on a nonprofit organization for my college speech class, the rebuttal for what about poor people led me to a realization. There is no “We the People of the United States” (The Preamble to the U.S. Constitution) and never has been “We the People” is a fallacy. In order for it to be true we would all have to vote for the same person. “We the People” only includes the winning elected representative of some voting citizens. But there could be an actual "We the People of the United States" if all people were taxed equally without discrimination and an insane tax code. Go FairTax!

The primary reason people with power and consequently large resources don't want the Fair Tax is because they would also have to pay taxes. Thus the name "Fair Tax". It will take public outrage for congress to move on this issue. They neither want to pay nor give up the ability to pick winners (themselves) and losers (the rest of us). Our founding fathers, who gave their all for the greatest "freedom" experiment in human history, can only feel betrayed by such cowardice. We the people rolled over when we allowed Central Banking, the warfare/ welfare state, and this ridiculous and tyrannical tax code to become a part of this formerly "Free" and great country. Let's stop bickering across so called aisles and start voting for patriots who love freedom. The Fair Tax is a great start.

AS my Congressional Representative, I implore you to look into enactment of the FAIR TAX. Why are we still taxing income when how much money you make means absolutely nothing. The number in your bank account doesn't do a lick of good! Money only matters when you SPEND it. So tax consumption already. It eliminates dozens of methods of fraud, and the simplified tax process reduces the size of the federal government, lowering the burden on ALL taxpayers. One more thing about the FairTax. As a consumption tax, everyone pays it. Everyone being citizens, green card holders, student and work visa holders, TOURISTS, and so forth. How many of those pay income taxes now? Increaseing the size of the pot lowers the needed burden on those already contributing. This essentially gives MORE people a tax cut overall. What about low income families paying more? Well, the Prebate exemption calculates if you spend under the poverty level and accommodates your tax rate accordingly. So, low income families may actually be exempt from federal taxes altogether. The Fair Tax rewards hard work. It gives you your full check, and ONLY taxes you on what you spend. This has the added benefit of making it far easier to save for retirement. Imagine that you live frugally and only spend 30-40% of what you earn. You could save over half of your yearly wages towards retirement. So each year you work would equal one year saved for the future. Work 30 years, and have (nearly - due to inflation) 30 years saved up. That's not a bad deal! How many years do you have to work now in order to save enough money to live for 30 years after retirement at your current lifestyle? ENACT THE FAIR TAX!
