Mr. Bob Livingston:
This is a great letter. There is one point I would suggest changing. In my mind I think that a FAIR TAX (Consumption Tax) would be better than the flat tax. A Fair Tax would eliminate the IRS as we know it. It would be a consumption tax on most items, paid when purchasing an Item.
On another note we need to limit the Senate to one (1) term and House to (2) terms and when they pass a law it effects them the same as the public they are representing.
Thank you so much. Our primary problem is too much unConstitutional government. Before we consider taxes, we must understand that first and foremost. Switching to a fair tax or flat tax or any other tax system will only perpetuate big government because it gives support to the lie that taxes confiscated from Americans are necessary to fund government. That is not the case. Ask yourself this question: If you could print all the money you wanted, would you have to earn money to support yourself or would you have any debt? The answer is no! And neither does government.
Regarding term limits and requiring Congress to live under the laws they pass, we are in agreement.
