In Support of FAIRtax

Congratulations to Mark Peter, who had the following letter published in the Lexington County, South Carolina, Chronicle:

In support of the FairTax

“I have fond memories of attending the Gilbert Peach Festival several years ago, where I sampled different kinds of peach dishes and drinks. 

“During that particular festival, I helped man the FairTax ( booth in order to educate the public and get our politicians to pledge their support. 

“Rep. Joe Wilson didn't even stop by to say hello. Our political leaders make empty promises to reform our overbearing tax code. The FairTax will eliminate our federal income tax, withholdings, and the tyrannical IRS. It's a national sales tax on new goods and services that will create jobs, stimulate our economy, bring more foreign investment to our shores, manufacturing, and fund our bankrupt Social Security and Medicare system. 

“The poor and elderly won't be penalized, as according to a formula, every legal American household will receive an average of $400 per month for essential items. 

“Of course, we still need our members of Congress to reign in their deficit spending and make necessary cuts per the recommendations of Citizens Against Government Waste. “

Mark A. Peter, West Columbia
