Fair tax would fix corruption

Houma Today

“The Senate’s top tax writers have promised their colleagues 50 years worth of secrecy in exchange for suggestions on what deductions and credits to preserve in tax reform.”

This is the opening sentence in a piece published by The Hill, a Washington, D.C., online newspaper. Re-read that first sentence.

Our Senate is so corrupt its members don’t want their name connected with the sordid “tax deals” they have made in the past.

It can’t be because they would be embarrassed or ashamed. They are incapable of such.

They are afraid that we, their voting constituents, might find out just who the corrupt ones are and vote them out.

Many congressmen are so intoxicated on the power that comes with the IRS and the tax code the Congress doesn’t govern effectively.

This couldn’t happen if the fair tax were adopted. This proposed tax legislation has been before congress for over 10 years but never even considered.

With the fair tax, there are no loopholes; absolutely no opportunity for crooked deals by elected congressmen.

Its passage would annihilate the IRS too.

Educate yourself about the fair tax.

Contact your congressman; demand its passage.

The corrupt Congress is bringing our nation to ruin.
