I agree an exclusion for staples would be a better system than the prebate. However, you're never going to get the dumb masses (Thanks, Neil!) to give up their yearly "gift" from Unca Sammy w/o something in return. After 2-4 generations of a truly fair tax system, they would understand a coherent argument for phasing out the prebate in exchange for lowering the tax rate, rather than sending it to Washington to be filtered through the bureaucracy.
