The FairTax is not a VAT. BTW, do you know what the prebate is and why it would eliminate the FairTax for ALL up to the poverty level?

BTW, how was lunch? I just had a great workout and am about to enjoy mine...:)
Have a great lunch.

Always enjoyable to exchange posts with folks on TOPIX.

I've made this offer many times and haven't had to pay off yet. However, some people I loaned them my copy and said I would be them the finest dinner in town (their choice of restaurant) if they thought it was not a good idea. No, they didn't have to have dinner with me...
IF you buy the books, read them AND understand them and you're not for it or think it's a good idea, I will pay for the books (if you send them to me), so this educational opportunity is "no risk". I will add the books to my "share with others" pile.
Note: I will ask you several questions to make sure you understand the concepts and the rationale.
I have yet to meet someone that understood the concepts that didn't think it was a good idea. Granted, our elected officials won't go for it, as it takes MAJOR power (taxing authority) out of their hands and there would be some challenges in getting it implemented (interstate commerce and such, I'm told), but it would really benefit this country and is FAIR. Those that say the rich don't pay their "fair share" can't complain about loopholes and tax breaks, as there would be no income taxes. Oh yeah, all those people that get paid cash (illegal immigrants, people getting paid "under the table) would be paying their fair share, too...
when i do torture myself and read these books,i sure hope that your idea of the "best restaurant" is'nt burger king.

Did you read the part that said, "their choice of restaurant"? It may be your comprehension skills aren't up to the task...

"Value added taxes were introduced in part because they create stronger incentives to collect than a sales tax does. Both types of consumption tax create an incentive by end consumers to avoid or evade the tax, but the sales tax offers the buyer a mechanism to avoid or evade the tax—persuade the seller that the buyer is not really an end consumer, and therefore the seller is not legally required to collect it.

The burden of determining whether the buyer's motivation is to consume or re-sell is on the seller, but the seller has no direct economic incentive to collect it. The VAT approach gives sellers a direct financial stake in collecting the tax, and eliminates the problematic decision by the seller about whether the buyer is or is not an end consumer."

Both VATS and sales taxes hurt the poor the most.
Neither one has anything to do with the Fairtax.

Mr Informed Opinion is known far and wide using a scatter gun approach to his opinions . He hits one balloon and misses many others.

It was quite a while ago now, but it was on TV and it showed Obama, Hilary and a bunch of other people watching the whole thing go down. Obama was starting to waffle and someone or a couple of people(I can't remember their names now, but their names were brought out on the news, put pressure on Obama before he could back out and the deed was done. At any rate, it's no secret that Clinton passed up the chance. He had him in the crosshairs and backed down.
Moot point now. Bin Laden is gone and it happened on Obama's watch.
