Personally I'd be in favor ofa VAT consumption tax if it means the drug dealers, who pay no income tax, would be taxed now when they buy their bling, and my neighbor the contractor, who starts every job with, 'if you pay cash, I'll knock off something from the bill' would have to pay tax when he buys stuff with that massive amount of unreported income he makes. This is MY definition of a fair tax--when my neighbor who makes as much as me but pays almost nothing in income tax because so much of his income is (illegally) unreported now has to pay his FAIR share for society's benefits. Mr. Mitchell, if you have a better idea for getting all that unreported income to be taxed than a VAT, I am all ears.
