Fair Tax Plan would solve nation’s economic problems

Dear Editor,

The unemployment report at 7.8 percent with 32 days left before the election gives a false impression.  Not counted were those who have stopped looking for a job. Unemployment is closer to 14 percent with over 23 million Americans unemployed or underemployed.

More people are looking to the Fair Tax Plan to solve this nation’s economic woes. It would:

• Give every worker their full paycheck.

•  Permit businesses to compete in the world market without having to pay high taxes.

• Require all the current tax dodgers to pay their fair share.

Any doubters this would work need only think what would happen if everyone has their full paycheck to put back into the economy and if every business and individual did not have to pay federal income taxes or report anything to the IRS ever again. 

For more information go to fairtax.org.
