Another point of detractors are for the "transitionary" period. Those that hold Roth IRAs are going to stand up and complain that those with regular IRAs that are supposed to be taxed when money is taken out are getting an unfair advantage because the Roth contributors have already paid income taxes on their money where as the traditional IRA folks have not. To those, I say this: don't stop this from going through which we all will benefit for to spite those that benefit a tiny bit more. If you want to complain, tell your congressmen to give you back some of that savings account money ONCE THE FAIRTAX HAS BEEN ENACTED. Sadly, I think the demise of the Fairtax is in the perception that contributions made in the UNFAIR system will not be compensated for in the transition to a Fairtax. Once again, even though everybody gains there will be those that bog the process down because somebody is gaining more than they are... a ground that is fertile for politicians to exploit to put the kabash on the Fairtax.
Another thing: DO NOT LET THE GOVERNMENT SPENDING ISSUE GET IN THE WAY OF IMPLEMENTING THIS. I was listening to a radio program where a caller called in to tout the Fairtax and the host immediately said "well, I think the larger issue is in government spending." Folks, the reason people don't give a damn about government spending is because they are oblivious to how much of their own money goes to the government. We can attack spending once it becomes clear to everyone how much money they are giving the government. MAKE THE FAIRTAX HAPPEN NOW.
To me this is such a no-brainer it's depressing to think that there are so many detractors.
Some people think that they are getting 'government money' when they get their tax 'refund' back. They forget that the money was taken from their paycheck each pay period.
There are so many things to consider about the current taxing system. At least read the book before making up your mind based on opinions by people that have obviously not read the book or don't understand the concepts. I have yet to read a rebuttal that looks at the big picture. Sure there can, and probably will, be problems in the transition; however, we can not continue along the current path of taxation.
It's a quick read and definitely worth a look. The authors rapidly identify the problem then offer up their suggestions for fixing it. There is also a bit of tax history thrown in.
This book does a good job of pissing the reader off and making him/her want to do something about the problem, and also cites several times in the past that the actions and discontent of the general populace has in fact led to changes in the way taxes are levied and collected.
Simple enough for the average lazy fat dullard to read between football games yet poignant enough to get the point across, this is one of those books you wish everyone would read, or at least be aware of. Good stuff.
