The solution starts by moving the tax base from income, savings and investments to a tax based on consumption. The solution is a progressive national consumption-sales tax system, The Fair Tax. The system includes a monthly tax rebate to untax family purchases up to poverty level spending.
We can have true tax reform by passing The Fair Tax Bill. Please contact your U.S. representative and two senators. Ask them to please cosponsor the Fair Tax Bill. Learn more and get involved at www.fairtax.org.
