A New Beginning

Posted By Donald Koop, Wednesday, February 21, 2018


Thanks for being curious enough to visit my blog.  This is the first of what I hope will be a long series.

A word about the name of my blog.  In the run-up to the 2016 election, my website partner and I opted to take a hiatus from advocacy to evaluate the tax “reform” proposals put forth by all of the candidates.  Eventually, we formed an opinion on what would be the best approach and created the motto, “Simply tax us,” by taking words from several descriptors:

Simply – in an uncomplicated, easy to understand way

Tax – to raise revenue, not to promote certain behaviors or to create winners and losers

Us – as the payers of last resort, not intermediate tax collectors, such as corporations, who then recover those costs in the prices of their goods and services.

I have been charged with bringing tax reform supporters to this FAIRtax USA connections website.  I intend to do that by commenting on the deficiencies in the current (new) income-based tax code, pointing out what could be dramatically improved by switching to a consumption-based tax, and explaining how an available alternative plan would accomplish that.


 

In my next posts I will begin the process of laying out where we need to be and how to get there.


 

The views expressed in this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Americans For Fair Taxation.
