This new book "FairTax: The Truth" answers the critics. It is written by the same guys who wrote The FairTax Book, John Linder and Neal Boortz. I have just begun to read it so cannot give you a book report; however, I picked up one thing so far:
The FairTax vision is "a collection of fundamental economic principles". "What are those principles? In short words, here's what we think the American tax system should be:
- BORDER NEUTRAL
- INDUSTRY NEUTRAL
- GOOD FOR SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE"
It's in the book - pick it up and read it.
