Opinion Letters Consumption tax would boost business in America

America works when Americans work. We have driven out of America millions of jobs over the last 30 years because we can’t compete with countries with lower costs of doing business. Our wages, benefits, regulations, taxes, etc. all contribute to driving the cost of doing business up. Consequently, jobs go elsewhere. T

here is a bill in Congress, HR 25 that resurrects America as arguably the most cost competitive place to do business in the world, the FairTax bill. No more federal tax on income. Your gross pay is your take home pay. Taxes to fund the government are generated by taxing consumption of new goods and services.

To help citizens pay this tax on basic goods and services, a prebate is paid monthly to all legal Americans. No favors for special interests, everyone is treated the same. Manufacturers worldwide would flock to the USA to build factories. Good paying jobs return. Call your Congressman today and ask him to support the bill.

America works when Americans work.
