They beat us!

Posted By Donald Koop, Sunday, February 25, 2018

Who beat us?  Congress, who correctly recognized that the American taxpayers deserved tax reform but did it in a way that leaves themselves as the power brokers and "reform" still a dream.

How?  Because American taxpayers failed to rise up in indignation over Congress’ refusal to even consider a consumption-based tax over the one-hundred-year-old income-based tax.

Why?  Because we were not organized enough to fight the power structure nor to attract the kind of support that should exist for a completely different kind of taxation.

Now what?   We must inform, attract, and mobilize enough people to put a consumption-based tax on the minds of millions of voters and taxpayers.  One way is to attract and connect large numbers of people to the FAIRtax USA website.  We need to do something different to accomplish this.

In my next post I will discuss why we need to do this.


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