Everybody will pay the same percentage. You will know before you buy if what you want is worth paying the taxes on it. The decision what to pay will be yours alone.

The rich, having more money to spend, will obviously pay most of the taxes under the Fair Tax. Why is coercion as in the income tax more just than freely paying for the goods and services YOU want and paying a tax to do so? If you don't want to pay a lot of taxes, don't buy a lot of stuff. However, I predict that those who can afford to buy things will buy things.

I am fully aware of the prebate, but it was irrelevant to my contrasting the flat tax to the Fair Tax. An exemption is not a prebate.

No check would be necessary. When you pay sales tax, the salesclerk makes sure you are paying the correct amount. It would be stupid not to charge you the correct amount of taxes.
In the end, entropy will get us all, eric. In the meantime, rational, accurate, and quantitative thinking is more to be treasured than expediency. Of course, I could be wrong.
Calvin Coolidge. "I do not choose to run." Of course. You're saying that he determined that he probably would not win another term. His own political calculation led to that determination; no one forced him to that decision.
Mr. Akin is not the only one with a simplistic view of biology, Doctor.
Actually, stress can hamper ovulation, eric. Which is not to say that it does in any certain percentage of cases.. There is no hard and fast rule.
Nobody ran LBJ out of office. He served his full term.

With the flat tax, taxpayers would have to fill out a simple form. With the Fair Tax, taxpayers would not have to fill out any form. With the flat tax, taxpayers would be required to identify themselves to the IRS. With the Fair Tax, taxpayers would remain anonymous. The flat tax taxes income and can be manipulated by definition of income. The Fair Tax does not tax income and cannot be so manipulated. I'll go with the Fair Tax.
