Why not just flat income tax with no loopholes? Thats fair.
Agreed! The Fair Tax is the only fair way to tax. It has the added benefit of encouraging work and saving while discouraging consumption.

why not just implement a federal sales tax? that way everybody pays, those who make more will pay more, and the conservatives won't be able to complain that the folks who recieve benefits do not pay anything...
sounds like a win for everybody if taxes are blind. plus you would recieve income from foreign tourist as well as the american consumers. then tax the corperate bottom line just as they do now. sounds like a pretty quick way to get our budget back in the black and get rid of all the deadbeat non taxpayers
