An obvious problem with instituting the Fair Tax is it's impact on the thousands of tax accountants, lawyers, and lobbyists that make their considerable incomes due to the complexity of the IRS code. While the thousands of IRS agents could be redeployed to go after waste and fraud, the other thousands of tax attorneys and lobbyists would have to find other, non-productive ways to earn their considerable incomes. With attorneys writing legislation and funding candidates, there is no way this will ever change.
