The only reason we cannot get the FairTax even voted on falls squarely onto the politicians who need to tinker with the IRS Code in order to milk campaign contributions from taxpayers they favor with tax breaks the rest of us never know existed.
Here is the route the money takes. Politician can change tax law, lobbyist knows this and offers a generous campaign contribution, politician changes it so only that contributor gets the tax break, then on to the next campaign contributor. Some of the old politicians drained their campaign fund by putting every distant relative on their payroll.
This corrupt system needs changing and the FairTax is the only change that will minimize corruption and do away with career politicians keeping office forever.

About: "I have been an advocate for the FairTax, since before it had a name. I wrote my first letter to my congressional representative and my senators, in 1985 advocating the repeal of the 16nth amendment and repeal of all Federal Tax Laws and passing a national sales tax. In the 1990's it got the Name FairTax and being the most researched taxing system in the world, it should be passed. "
