The FairTax in the News
FairTax would give edge back to American
manufacturers - TCPalm
Americans should be concerned
about the competitive edge that our tax system gives foreign manufacturers. We
should no longer allow the income tax to make foreign-produced goods more
competitive than our own.
Replacing the income tax with
the FairTax, a highly progressive federal consumption tax, will end this
practice and make American products 20 percent to 30 percent more competitive,
both at home and abroad. What a break for U.S. producers and consumers as well.
Getting rid of the income tax
would dramatically lower production costs in this country. And competition
would ensure that these cost savings flow not only to the pockets of American
manufacturers who would be able to create more and better-paying jobs, but also
to the pockets of American consumers who would be able to buy more, save more,
and invest more.
