FairTax a no brainer

To the Editor:

We all face tough choices in life, but choosing between the income tax and the FairTax is easy.

How would you like to get your entire paycheck, for an immediate 15 percent raise, maybe more?

How would you like to never have to file another 1040 for the rest of your life?

How would you like to see a number for the cost of running the federal government on every cash register receipt?

How would you like to see trillions of dollars returned to the U.S. from Switzerland, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, etc. to jump start the economy and restore “Made in America?”

How would you like to see all the new jobs that would come from expanding the GDP by 10 percent?

How would you like to take control from DC and eliminate tax favors for the special few who can afford to play the lobby game?

How would you like an automatic check the first of every month to “pay ahead” that month’s taxes on food, housing and medical costs?  $564 for a family of four.

How would you like to see the IRS shuttered forever?

The FairTax is not a tough choice; in fact it’s a “no brainer.”
