Michael Reagan

If my father Ronald Reagan were around today, I know what he'd do.

He'd do exactly what I'd do -- get the flat-taxers and the fair-taxers together in a room and have them hash out a single tax reform program to sell to the American people.

So, sure, let's bring the Obama Gang and its IRS lackeys to justice for their abuses.

But what we need most right now is for someone -- Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Donald Trump, even Jay Leno -- to convene a national tax convention that would unite our side and lead the fight for a better tax code.

Republicans can't afford to be split on the important issue of income tax reform or miss this chance to focus on the crimes of the IRS.

The Flat Tax and the Fair Tax each have pluses and minuses that need to be debated. But in the end it really doesn't matter which idea triumphs.

America and all Americans would be better off with either one. Either would eliminate the progressive tax system and make federal taxes simpler, fairer, smarter and apolitical. And, best of all, either one would kill the IRS as we know it -- forever.
