If Republicans were smart and really wanted to set themselves apart from the (D)onkeys they’d embrace the Fair Tax. It’s plain to see that our tax system needs an overhaul if the Treasury Secretary can’t even figure it out.
I think it’s closer to being politically viable than a lot of people think. The inevitable backlash against big government policies and high taxes will be here before you know it. Why not be bold and try something fresh? If Republicans are going to make a comeback, they need to be innovative and put an emphasis on economic freedom. The Fair Tax would do it….I really think you would see the economy take off.
