If I have the energy tonight after work, I'll respond with a diatribe on why on the fair tax isn't as simple as it seems. I gave it a chance and looked past the regressive element that initially turned me off. I'm against the idea for much different reasons today. I'll elaborate later...already wasted enough work time on the Huddle today.

I look forward to reading it :)

If it works I would prefer it much more than the confusing clusterfug we have now.

Who didn't see this coming? And it's not just some wild idea, this is going to happen.

Do they plan to eliminate other taxes to implement this one?

This is not surprising. When Clinton was elected, I remember him looking at 5 new things to tax. Things that had never been taxed before. Back then there was enough opposition in the congress to stop it. Right now we are phucked. It will be a while before it changes. I say just hunker down for a long, bad ride.
