  1. Ross, you notice Fairtax hid this for 10 years, and even now hides it.

    The ONLY place Fairtax says anything about this trillion dollar tax on city and states is in ONE sentence, and that sentence is not clear.

    Plus, your #1 axiom is that ONLY PEOPLE pay taxes. So how can California state government pay 14 billion?

    How can Dallas state government pay 9-10 billion? How can Florida pay 9-10 billion?

    How can Los Angeles city goverment pay 900 million.

    By the way, I am putting your picture in my web site, along with your name, so people can see it. I assume since you release your own picture to the internet, that you have no objections to your picture being there. And quotes from you.

    Thank you

    sincerely,

    Mark

    This isn’t a question of “boo whoo” — it’s a question of why you hid it. Why it’s not in any book, why its not in any video, why it’s not any speech? You have ONE strange sentence, out of hundreds of thousands, and you think all the city and states are going to see that, and send in a trillion dollars?

    Are you out of your mind?

  2. I’ve read your blog Mark. One of twenty that you said you run. I’m sure I’ll find the same sob story about how government entities will have to pay taxes. Boo hoo for the government entities. It’s about time they share the load with the rest of the country and be on the same, level playing field.

    And there isn’t any fine print. I’ve already quoted you and provide the links to the parts in H.R. 25 that detail where and how government entities would pay the same as any other employer or business would pay, their taxes.

    You just can’t seem to get over the fact that government entities, who employ people, make stuff, and sell stuff, will be treated the same as every other entity that employs people, makes stuff, and sells stuff. Just because you can’t get over it, does not mean that the FairTax plan would not be a stimulative economic engine all on its own.
