To Nintz:

"It's actually 30 percent, though, isn't it? And putting something like that on the cost of a new home seems like it would ensure that the homebuilding industry stays in the doldrums for a long time."

The rate is stated at the 23% tax-inclusive (as is the income tax) or 30% tax-exclusive (as most sales taxes are calculated). On the surface, the rates seem higher since 30>23. However, tax-inclusive (exclusive) only refer to the manner in which the tax is calculated. Either way, the same amount of tax is paid. We who support the Fair Tax have been accused of lying because of the difference. However, that is not the case. The Fair Tax is quoted as 23% is for a quick comparison to the income tax, which is also tax-inclusive, and, since it is designed to replace the income tax, the reason for the tax -inclusive rate comparison should be obvious. Critics quote the 30% rate with no explanation as to inclusive/exclusive and with a little sleight of hand for three reasons: to accuse supporters of lying, bring confusion into the debate and try to scare away potential supporters.

Today, anyone buying a home is buying it with post tax money. Payroll deductions guarantee that. Also, when someone buys a home, there is always the estate and captial gains taxes. Please take time to explore the links. You might be pleasantly suprised.

Also, since Bartlett was mentioned, we've been familiar with him for quite a while. For those who are intersted, follow the link and check out the full story as well as some of Bartlett's "crackpot" ideas.

Remember folks. The income tax gives the government power to tax every dollar and control how much you earn. If they have the power to take 15%, they logically have power to take 100%. Rates in America have been as high as 94%. http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxfacts/di… With rates as high as 94%, jobs left America and are not likely to return until the danger of the same confiscatory rates returning is eliminated. It is the income tax that gives Washington the power to control how much each and every American citizen can earn. Our government is bought and sold for "tax breaks." While we go to work and can't bring home a full paycheck, they are deciding how much of the money WE earned they think we "deserve" to keep. The rest will be spent before we can even file a return. Don't kid yourselves! It's done by both sides of the aisle. More than a few critics, have a vested interest in keeping the income tax. They make money directly or indirectly, because of it and do not want to give up their favorite "power" tool and cash cow, easily. Ultimately, it isn't liberal vs. conservative or Republicans vs. Democrats. It isn't even rich vs. poor. When it comes down to it, it is economic slavery under the income tax vs. our economic freedom under the Fair Tax and that for ALL Americans. the Index of Economic Freedom (Heritage Foundation) has us listed at no. 8, behind China. It's time for everyone to be able to work, save and provide for our families without being punished for it. With the elimination of all income taxes, America would be the place on earth companies want to locate, build and hire employees when comparing our single rate, one time charged and collected, sales tax to rates they will pay in other countries (income taxes, VAT taxes, etc). America can be properous again.

Don't take either my word or the words of critics for it. Check us all out. At Fairtax.org, not only can you find the economic research, you can find the Fair Tax critics and the Fair Tax response to them. Give us a fair hearing and I believe you will come to the same conclusion I have reached.

Support the Fair Tax.
