The tax system in this country will never NEVER EVER NEVER EVER be changed because there's no incentive to change and because thousands of people both public and private derive well paying livelihoods from the complexity. I'm all for the Fair Tax, but that's just me. POOF! I just waved the magic wand and the Fair Tax is the law of the land. Uh - ohhhhh.......I just put 800,000 people out of work, kids will be starving, no college tuition, homes foreclosed on, bankruptcy gone wild. "Kill that sonafabic.... that waved the magic wand"
