Former Fairtax Sucker Exposes the Hustle

under construction. 

This is a "sloppy mess" of a blog, I admit fully.   I am horrible at blog organization, so sue me.


 I was fooled by Fairtax - loved it, loved the books, the videos, and the speeches. Then I read the fine print.  

Our tax code needs to go, every bit of it.  And this Fair Tax fraud had all the slogans, and the liars to push the slogans.   It seemed perfect-- simple, fair, researched.

Just a very very simple retail sales tax. Transparent,  and you even get a check from the government to pay your taxes on "necessities".

Wow!!  Sounds great!  

One problem -- Fairtax is a goofy ass absurdity, a fraud by lying bastards who have no intention to pass it.

Sounds great though. 



Read the fine print -- closely.   Millions of people would owe 5 to 10 times higher federal tax - and even owe more in fed taxes than they had as income.

Can millions of people pay over 100% tax rate -- over 100% of their income as a federal tax?  No, of course not.
And that is just one absurdity. 


Want to lose 10,000 dollars quickly?

  Bet me that millions of people, if Fairtax fraud somehow passed as is, would not owe more than 100% of their income as a fed tax.

Virtually everyone on Medicaid would owe drastically higher fed taxes than they had as income.  

Can a woman making 20K a year pay 50K in fed taxes?  No of course not.   Never mind should she have to pay that  -- is it possible she will?  No, it is not possible.  Yet that is just one example of Fairtax clever bullshit.

How on earth can that be?   The poor don't buy that much in retail goods and services, right?  So they won't be taxed that much, right?


That's the trick in Fairtax fraud.  The "retail sales tax" thing is a small fraction of Fairtax.   Someone who bought NO retail goods at all, grew their own food, bought only used products, could still owe over 100% of their income in fed taxes.

And that is just the start of the goofy hustle.  Sounds great though!  Please pass it! 

Fairtax had to tax all "consumption expenditures".    Consumption expenditures --not just retail purchases.  Learn what "consumption expenditures" means to Fairtax tricky bastards.   They did this trick so their tax revenue projections -- a fraud if there ever was one -- looked okay on paper.   

As President Bush Tax Advisory panel showed in 2005,  Fairtax is not only goofy (our word, goofy)  Fairtax has several absurdities -- impossibilities.  The absurdity of all cancer victims owing massive taxes, just because they are sick, is just one.

But remember, Fairtax is not -- not -- not  a retail sales tax. Not a personal retail sales tax. That's the spin. That's the hustle. Yes they would tax retail sales, sure.  But that's almost inconsequential to their tax revenues.

They also claimed to be simple.

They also claimed to have 22 million in research.

They also claimed to be "transparent".

It does not matter for Fairtax if the cancer victim makes 20,000 dollars a year, or makes 50,000 or 100,000 a  year.   If a breast cancer victims CONSUMES 100K in cancer surgery, chemo and recovery services, she would owe 30,000 dollars in fed taxes.

If a woman has breast cancer -- and buys a new car, and a new house the same year, she could easily be liable for 500,000 dollars in fed taxes,  even though her income is 50K.

Remember, her income does not matter.

Maybe she borrowed to pay for the new house.  Maybe she borrowed to pay for the cancer surgery -- or used savings.  It does n not matter.  

Why not just exempt health care, then?   

Because if they exempt health care, instead of a 30% tax rate on all other consumption, they would have to charge 40 or 42%  tax rate.

But a bigger reason -- if they exempted health care and had a 40% tax rate, what happens if they also exempt food?   Then that 40% tax jumps to about 50% tax on everything else.

What if they also exempted rent?

If they exempted rent, that 50% tax rate would go to about 60% and so on. 

If they only taxed what they could rationally tax -- the sales tax rate would be 89%.   To make their goofy ass fraud math work, they had to tax (and they did so, on paper) all kinds of things that would be impossible to actually tax.

And yes, the lying bastards who made this up, knew this the entire time.  Every damn time they opened their mouths, they knew it was a goofy ass political fraud.


And that's just the start of the absurdities.

But but but, wouldn't the "researchers"  spot that and other absurdities?

That's the clincher.   There is no -- I  mean no - research about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other federal taxes. Yes, they have no research about Fairtax - we show you what they call research.  It's no more research than a McDonald wrapper is research, but lucky for them, they are legally able to call their BS research.

Yet, if you sent them any money -- contact an attorney.  They did commit fraud if they raised money on false pretenses,  and this most certainly does rise to the level of false pretenses.   
Speaking of legal -- I put up 50,000 dollars to anyone who can show  1 page of that 22 million dollars in Fairtax research about their "very simple"  personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes. 


   A "very very" simple retail sales tax.
   Paid at the cash register.
   All researched. 

Sounded great. All prices drop (remember, it's all researched)  US becomes "economic power of the world" (all researched)  and 80 economist came up with this idea and is now "the most researched economic plan in history".

Wow. Oh wow, let's do it already!!!!

Mind if we read the fine print first???

Actually, Fairtax hustlers very much DO NOT want you to see their fine print.  They put the fine print we refer to here,  in what they call "research" documents.

Very clever, these guys.

Just one of the absurdities in Fairtax....yes, absurdities. 

 Did you know that all cities, all counties, all states are supposed to "raise their tax rates" to pay these other massive taxes.

In fact, these "other taxes"  are by far the biggest part of Fairtax??



Not one Fairtax sucker has ever noticed the fraud from the books, videos and speeches.

It's impossible to see the fraud from their slogans --books, videoes.  Those sound great.   

Let me repeat that. 

They did not make it difficult to know -- deliberately, they made it impossible for you to know about these trillions of dollars of other taxes in their books, videos and speeches.

So guys like  like Boortz, Huckabee, Gary Johnson could fool anyone who just bought into the great slogans.   The fine print is there, a few words here, a few there, and most importantly, in their MATH.

We show you.

Here is one "tiny example" -- according to that fine print, all city county and states should raise their tax rates.  They don't tell you that in books videos and speeches, it's very cleverly placed in their "research" and placed there in a way to deceive, not inform.

All city taxes -- up 15-30%.  All state taxes up 15  or more percent. All county taxes - up 15-30 percent. 

That's just one tiny thing -- 800 billion dollars of new taxes you have to pay.  They "forgot" to mention that in any clear way.

But in this document, you can find it.  Did you know this document even existed? 

Yes.  That's in Fairtax own fine print.

Once we and others exposed this goofy nonsense, Fairtax hustlers apparently issued other "versions"  of this nonsense and made it even more bizzare and deceptive.

The point is, they have massive other impossible taxes -- ONE set of those impossible goofy taxes are the 800 billion dollars or so taxes on all city county and states.

They can't tax city and county and states a dime, much less 800 billion.   

So why would they tax (on paper) all city county and states?  

To make their fraudulent math work, if you didn't look closely.



You won't pay a dime extra taxes because of Fairtax because it's goofy and impossible nonsense, and won't pass.  But pretend it would pass, and pretend all city county and states would send in about 800 billion.

How much do they assume city county and states will have to raise taxes?  Of course they don't tell you.  But we will.

According to sworn testimony to Ways Means Committee, a good estimate for the increase  of all state, county and city taxes is 15-25%.  All retail taxes -- up.  All property taxes. All everything -up.

Way up. 


 As Bruce Bartlett said, Fairtax is so goofy, that if it were implemented, the actual sales tax would be over 100% on retail sales. 

Let me repeat that -- OVER 100% if they only taxed retail sales.  SO Fairtax does not just tax retail sales.  

States, cities and counties  would owe hundreds of billions in taxes.  Dallas Texas would owe over 100 million, and raise their tax rates by that much -- THAT IS IN THE FINE PRINT.

Read the fine print.  It's there.  And it's very much the biggest part of Fairtax.  These "other taxes" are what Fairtax uses to make their math work.  We would, seriously, love to see Fairtax hustlers explain this to Dallas Texas, Los Angeles County, and the State of California.

Dallas city council, for example, might be a tad surprised with the 80 or 100 million dollar tax on their wage pension and capital expenditure taxes. 

Odd,  Weird.  Massive -- over two trillion dollars of other taxes? 

Taxes that are impossible to collect -- like a 30,000 dollar fed tax on a cancer victim on medicaid.

How is that Fair or rational to tax a cancer victim 30,000 dollars even if she had the money?   

How about that "Footnote"  -- yes footnote -- which "assumes"  all city county and states will pay a 30% tax on all government "investments"  including wage pension and operational expenditures.

And they are to pay these massive impossible hidden taxes IN ADVANCE.



Cleverly Fairtax fine print and math taxes everyone who "consumes" cancer surgery or chemo or nursing care.  No exceptions whatsoever.  Yes, they do. See their math and fine print.

In fact, the biggest part of Fairtax revenue as nothing (remember- nothing) to do with retail or personal consumption.  


No one is stopping you from finding the fine print yourself, ya know.   In fact, you should find the fine print yourself.  I did.  And others did -- like President Bush Tax Panel did in 2005 when the exposed this goofy fraud in polite terms.

I am not polite.

If you won't want to find all the fine print, this may save you some time, however. 

FAIRTAX NEVER TOLD ANYONE  -- in 17 years, not one time, in speeches, videos and books, about what they actually tax.

You think it's a "very simple retail sales tax"  right?  Paid at the cash resgister, right?

That's what they told you.  

Boortz and Herman Cain,  pushed Fairtax.  Boortz was paid for his support -- yes he was.

Read on. 

Think Fairtax is a simple "personal retail sales tax"?   Oh not even close, and you have to find their documents like this, and read them very very carefully, so learn what they actually tax.

Gee -- seems like the folks putting out  their books, videos and speeches didn't want you to know what the hell they actually tax for most of the revenue.




I fell for Fairtax,  because it sounded so great. All that research especially -- 22 million dollars of research?  Even Harvard researchers proved it would do amazing things!   

Even if Fairtax was not magical, at least those 80 researchers  meant there was no way on earth this was some goofy ass fraud, right?


Not sorta, not kinda, not in a way.   Not something that "needs to be fixed".

But from the start, a goofy ass fraud. 



Until Fairtax I assumed no one would lie out the ass, over the top, in absurd ways, and claim 22 million dollars of research.   I was surprised, then, to find out, hell  yes.  Some lying bastards are willing to do just that.

Though I believed Fairtax books, and videos, I kept reading and asking questions.  Instead of candid simple answers, I got BS and the run around, especially about these massive "other taxes".  I read where city and states have to pay these taxes -- and that's fine, paying retail sales taxes, cities can do that.  No problem.

But then  why the run around?  Why not show that in HR25?  Why not mention that in the "research"?   I just wanted to see it. 

I found out, they have no research -- none at all, as you will see. And I put up 50,000 dollars to prove it.  If they have even one page -- just one page -- of that 22 million dollars of research that proves Fairtax is a simple personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes, I will give whoever shows me that page 50K.

Really.   And that's an offer, an legal offer.  See details below. 


YES they do have a retail sales tax --- there it is, in the dark blue.

But see the other taxes -- not on retail sales, but on things like cancer surgery (even cancer surgery "consumed" by Medicare patients).  Also see the red, the orange, the green and blue?  Those are the massive taxes on city, county and states.

Massive taxes on the "expenditures"  including wage, pension, captial expenditures of all city county and states.  All library districts, all parks, everything except education. Education expenditures are not "in the tax base".
Tax base = what they tax.  Remember that. 

More digging -- more reading their fine print and checking their math -- it became clear, this was a goofy ass fraud.

At one time, most folks on FOX NEWS pushed Fairtax, including Sean Hannity, Neal Cavuto, and Mike Huckabee.   Strange how they started to mention Fairtax less and less?

Huckabee and Hannity at Fairtax "Rally".
They were both paid.  Later they never explained why the backed off.   Many folks who once boasted of Fairtax (including Vice President Pence)  for some strange reason backed off. 
Not strange really -- when President Bush Tax Panel exposed the fraud in 2005 (See below)  it was harder to push this hustle with a straight face. 

And sworn testimony to Ways and Means Committee also exposed the fraud, in blunt terms, that we use today.




As for the "research" -- that's the clincher.     If they have 22 million in research about this "very very simple personal retail sales tax"  to replace all other fed taxes, no one on earth has seen in.    And we looked.

What we found were plenty of clever and misleading documents full of legalese and double speak, but literally no research. In fact what we found was quite the opposite of what research is.

Another basic tell tale sign Fairtax is a fraud, besides the lack of research --the fraudulent "Fairtax calculator"  that simply won't allow you to put in any information that matters.


 They had 80 top economists, right?

They had 22 million dollars of research!  "The most researched economic plan of all time"  is the kind of thing Boortz and others repeated in smug certainty.

Harvard research proved all kinds of things from it, right?   

Nonsense.   There is no research --Dale Jorgenson of Harvard, for example, did not even support Fairtax and refuted the claims of Neal Boortz not long after Boortz put out his amazing, and amazingly deceptive, Fairtax Book.   

Specifically Boortz claimed Jorgenson proved all prices would come down under Fairtax, so the tax would not matter.  

That's not what Jorgenson said-  at all.  Click for Jorgenson interview

Jorgenson was not even told about the massive taxes on city county and states.   Nor was he told about the massive impossible taxes on cancer victims, etc.

And what's more, Jorgenson explained that Boortz distortion that  of  prices would drop 22% so that the 23% tax (it's actually 30% tax)  would "not matter". 

Jorgenson explain that such price drops would only be possible if everyone allowed their employer to keep all money they used to pay in fed taxes.

Did you get that? Prices drop ONLY  if everyone allows their employer to keep what they used to pay in income and social security taxes.   Then -- only then -- theoretically  prices might drop.  

Do you think everyone will voluntarily and without being told, give all the money they used to pay in income and Social Security taxes to their employer???

Think about that for a minute. There is nothing like that in HR25.  No mention anywhere by anyone that you are supposed to give all the money you used to pay in taxes, to your employer.    Yet for prices to drop, as Boortz claimed they would, insanely everyone would have to donate massive amounts of money to their employer, or the price drop does not happen. 

 But Boortz, being the hustler he is, made it SEEM like research (22 million dollars of research)  proved all these great things. Utter fraud on the part of Boortz.    There is no such research that says that will or should happen, or that people will do such foolishness. And Boortz knows that.

There was no, is no,  research about this "very simple" personal retail sales tax of 30% replacing all other fed taxes. None. 


  They have no research.  They do have papers, all of them  come one way or another from "Beacon Hill" -- a public relations firm.  The use the term "research"  which is legal, I supposed, but fraudulent the way they use it.  Fraudulent meaning, they purposely aided in fooling people too stupid to find and read all the documents.

Beacon Hill documents are no more "research" about a simple personal retail sales tax than a picture of a Big Mack is research on the front of a McDonald drive up window.

You can call something research -- even when it's not.  So they do. My 50K offer is for actual research about a simple personal retail sales tax, one page, the details are below.



Uh no- -  no Harvard researcher supports Fairtax as a "simple personal retail sales tax of 23% to replace all other fed taxes.  

What they have is goofy double talk, though it sure LOOKs like legalese and sophisticated, look closely.

It's bizzare.   It's goofy.   And they had to pay folks to write this fraud in this style.  

They paid Beacon Hill. 

According to Bruce Bartlett, former economic advisor to President Reagan, Fairtax hustlers first tried to hire him to push this hustle.   Bartlett is friends with the guy at Beacon Hill -- and said he made "very good money"  for putting out the Beacon Hill BS.

But did the guys at Beacon Hill actually lie?    Not really,  because in their double speak bullshit, they have the massive goofy other taxes.   Very clever, a few words here, a few there.  So you probably can't sue them for fraud.

But if you gave Fairtax hustlers any money, you could sue them for fraud.



The point is, there is  research whatsoever. And certainly not 22 million dollars of research about this "very very simple" personal retail sales tax collected at the cash register to replace all other fed taxes.

  No research about this "very simple" personal retail sales tax to replace anything.   Read the Beacon Hill documents closely -- don't worry I show you, if you cant find them.   They have goofy-ass impossible "assumptions"  such as Fairtax will collect over 2 trillion dollars in taxes that have nothing -- nothing - nothing to do with retail sales.

And they do those "assumptions" with words -- clever details we show you.   Look them up yourself. It's not that hard if you have all their clever documents, and can ignore their slogans and fraudulent misleading public statements. 

And they came up with a goofy ass "calculator" -- another fraud I show you.

Here is a clue: if you have 22 million dollars of research, you should be able to show it.

And if you have a calculator that "proves" how great Fairtax is, you should be able to enter into that calculator information that matters.

These guys are lying bastards, who did this.  They knew what they were doing, because they were very deceptive and slick about it.  You don't need to be exceedingly slick and deceptive, if you are on the level.


 I offered 50,000 dollars if they would show 1 page of that actual 22 million dollars of research.

I  put up the 50K for anyone who can show 1 page of that 22M in research about this "very very simple"  personal retail sales tax that will replace all other fed taxes. See full details of the offer below.

My name is Mark Curran.
I put my money where my mouth is.

How can something so great sounding..... a fraud by lying bastards?    

You are about to find out.

A "very very simple"  personal retail sales tax, they said, to pay instead of all other fed taxes.

Paid at the cash register, they said.

22 million dollars of research, they said.

Not a word of truth, in any of that.   Not a personal retail sales tax to replace all other taxes.   By far the biggest part of Fairtax is taxes you pay, and nowhere near a cash register.  And they don't  have twenty-two cents of research on such a plan -- much less 22 million dollars of research.

In fact, for years now, I offer (and still do offer) 50,000 dollars to anyone who can show one page of such research. See details below.  This is not hard -- show one page of that research. 

You didn't know they tax all government wage expenditures, pension expenditures, operational expenditures, capital expenditures, a stunning 30%?

No kidding -- they never told you, except very cleverly in documents you would never read unless someone showed them to you and pointed it out.   And this is just one part of their clever bullshit fraud.   

This is their own document. Not mine -- theirs. Did they forget to tell you this in books videos and speeches? 

Fairtax is not -- not -- a retail sales tax paid at the register. 

 A small part of Fairtax is that retail sales tax, but the massive other taxes (impossible and unconstitutional taxes) are only in the fine print.

We show you.

Like this:  Their own document. We found it, we read it very closely.

President Bush Tax Panel read their fine print very closely too -- and reported (politely) in 2005 that it was essentially a bullshit fraud.  Without these massive goofy "other taxes"   Fairtax would be 89%.

That's why they included massive other goofy and impossible taxes in the fine print, and math.  They did not want to tell suckers about an 89% sales tax.  But if they ONLY taxed personal retail sales, this is the rate it would have to be - 89%.  

Their own documents.  We show you their own documents.  Remember that. Their own documents -- not their books, not their videos, not their bullshit fraudulent speeches.

We show you their fine print. 

Fairtax and it's "research"  is over 1 million words long.

It all sounds good -- until you get to the 300 words, a few here, and there.   As President Bush Tax Panel exposed, in 2005, Fairtax is not a retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

In fact, the Tax Panel showed  that Fairtax has massive goofy "other taxes"  that are only in a few clever words.  Like a 30,000 dollar tax on a cancer victim, even those on Medicare, for 100,000 dollars in cancer care.

And much more. 

There are no exceptions - that may sound fine, it may make crowds cheer.   But as you will see, it is the CONSUMPTION taxed, not the purchase.  That's the big slick trick here.

All consumption -- including city state and county's "consumption expenditures"  of wage, pension, and capital investments.   Operate a library district for 20 million, your city will owe 6 million in taxes. No, I am not kidding.

 This is in their clever fine print.  We show you.

Even more important -- this is how Fairtax math "adds up".

Why tax the cancer victim 30,000 dollars for cancer surgery and chemo?  

Why tax the city of Dallas over 100 million for their wage and pension expenditures?  

To make their math seem to add up. 

Massive impossible -- and unconstitional -- taxes.

The federal government can NOT tax city county and states this way, or anyway. Yet all cities, all counties, all states would owe 30% tax on all expenditures (not just retail spending).

Expenditures for wages -- taxed 30%

Expenditures for capital investments -- taxed 30%.

Expenditures for operational needs -- taxed 30%

These "other taxes" are not only goofy, they are impossible to collect, as you will see.   Like a 30,000 fed tax on a cancer victim who "consumes" 100K worth of medical care.

A cancer victim does not have to PURCHASE the cancer surgery and care, just "consume" it.  

 In a move so bold most will not notice it, Fairtax literally taxes consumption not just purchases.

And they count as "consumption"  the payments out by all cities, all counties, and all states.   Pay out 20 million for pensions wages and benefits?  Your city would owe over 5 million in taxes.

Really. And if you don't believe that, read on. 


How the hell is a city taxed on "expenditures"  for wages and pensions, and capital spending?    That's  not retail sales. That''s not personal sales.  

 Yet all city county and states are taxed on their wage, pension and capital expenditures.

So why include impossible taxes -- over 2 trillion dollars of them -- in the fine print?

That's in their math.  Their math very much depends on these massive goofy impossible and unconstitutional taxes.

They never tell you about this candidly -- yet their math depends on it.  They can not tell you candidly.

If they candidly told you that all cancer victims, even those on Medicare, would personally over over 30,000 dollars in fed taxes, without exception, you would laugh them off the national stage.

So of course they don't tell you.  But it's there, in the fine print, and their math is based on it.




All 20,000 cities in the US would instantly owe massive taxes to the fed government.  And not just on retail sales.

Retail sales would be a tiny, tiny fraction of what cities counties and states would have to pay 30% tax on.

So why not tell you -- or anyone, any city, any county, any state about this in a clear way?   Because it's a goof fraud, that is why. 

 Fairtax never made that clear to anyone. Not in any book is it clear, any video, any speech.

And city county and states are supposed to "raise their tax rates" to pay this. Huge taxes, massive taxes, unconstitutional as hell.  So why include these massive taxes on all city county and states?

They had to -- to make the math add up. 


Most of Fairtax has nothing to do with personal retail sales taxes.

Read the fine  print. Clever as hell.

   Here they "assume"  city county and states will "raise their tax rates sufficiently"  to pay these huge taxes.  According to sworn testimony to Ways Means Committee, these are estimates of what city county and states would have to pay.

Fairtax hustlers, of course, never showed any  estimates.  Why not show estimates?  They said "we can not take the time to estimate every city and county in the US".  

Okay -- just show your estimate on any city -- Chicago, Steamboat Springs, Sarasota Florida, Portland Maine.  It does not matter. Show one clear estimate.

Or show an estimate for any county -- Cook County, Los Angeles County.  Any county. Show one clear estimate.

Or for any state. All states would have to pay too -- according to Fairtax math, they would pay.    

Show us your estimate -- with your reasons -- of what ANY state would owe. Fairtax of course never did this,  it would reveal instantly what a fraud they are. 

Yet they never made it clear to anyone these massive other taxes even exist. 

Most Fairtax suckers can not even believe these massive other taxes exists -- they have not closely read the fine print.  They stupidly believe Fairtax is some kind of "very simple" personal retail sales tax paid "at the cash register".

Oh hell no.  Most of Fairtax has nothing to do with retail sales, or cash registers.  They just hope suckers think that.  



As bogus as Fairtax is, let's pass it. If the country is that stupid not to read the fine print and ask questions, fine. Pass this fraud.  It would be hilarious, and a "teachable moment".   

They tell you -- if you find all their documents -- in a clever way, that they tax all wage pension and operational expenditures of every city, county and state.

Joliet, Illinois, for example, would owe over 40 million dollars as the tax on their firemen, policemen, street and parks, sewer and water treatments, etc etc.   No one ever told Joliet.

Chicago -- would owe over 180 million dollars. No one every told Chicago.

Will County (Joliet is in Will County) would owe over 60 million  dollars. No one told Will County.

The State of Illinois would owe over 10 billion dollars.  Yes, 10 billion.  Remember, all expenditures (see the fine print and their own math)  are "in the tax base".

Tax base = what they tax.


Fairtax never told anyone candidly, not in any book, video or speech. In fact they gave quite the opposite impression!

Joliet is in Will County. Will County would owe over 40 million, too.

Both Will County and Joliet are in Illinois. Illinois would owe over 12 billion dollars.


Let me repeat that - 12 BILLION.  Whatever Illinois "expends" (other than education spending) is  in the tax base.  

Do you know what a tax base is?   A tax base is what they tax.

All government expenditures, all personal expenditures, are in the tax base.

Retail sales are only a small part of that.



Fairtax is like claiming you have research that proves you can tax moonbeams and baby farts for 3 trillion dollars.   It's that goofy.

And no, they have no research -- not a page, not a post it note, not a paper clip. Nothing, I mean NOTHING, about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

REMEMBER -- they claim, in books, videos and speeches -- to be a very very simple personal retail sales tax. All researched.  All rational, all fair.

It's goofy as goofy gets.  There is no research -- and I offer 50,000 dollars to anyone who can show 1 page of that 22 million in research about a simple retail personal sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.  See details below. 



If we don't pass it, the hustlers will always claim Fairtax was a rational, researched tax proposal.   So let's pass it.

It will be a "teachable moment"  and funny as hell, as Fairtax hustlers try to explain the 30 or 40 thousand dollars tax on a cancer victim, who is on Medicare. Yes --in the fine print, Fairtax has massive taxes on all cancer victims, including those on Medicare.  They have many impossible goofy taxes in the fine print, as we will show. 

They had to have massive "other" taxes in the fine print to make their fraudulent math seem to add up.    




Their own document. 

Their own tax base.   Tax base means (by definition) what they tax.

If something is "in the tax base"  it is taxed 30%. 

Guess what's in the tax base?   They told you -- in a clever way, in a way in a document 99.99% of Fairtax suckers never see, much less know about.

President Bush Tax Panel had no trouble finding it. I found it. You could find it.




 It all sounded so great to me.   Too good to be true, but all that research!!!   Twenty two million dollars of "independent" research by "top economists,"  including Harvard researcher Dale Jorgenson.

Who would lie about that?

Uh - Fairtax would, and did. We show you what they want suckers to think of as "research".  


  And prices go down anyway, so the tax "is a wash" as main hustler Neal Boortz claimed repeatedly, and in writing.

You get 50% more take  home pay, on average, said Boortz. Prices go down.  And US "becomes the economic powerhouse of the world".

If that were not enough,  all legal residents of the US get a monthly check to pay your fed sales taxes on "necessities".  

Not one word, not a syllable, of their claims are true. 

But it MUST be true, right?  They have all that research!

Over 80  "top economist"  proved this, with 22 million dollars of research.

Sounds great, right?

Sure does.

So what's the problem?


  In this case,

1)  It's the fine print they don't dare tell you about.  We show you.

2) The research that does not exist, but they claim cost 22 million dollars. We show you.


The massive other taxes -- the "cash register" taxes are a tiny part of it.  Massive other taxes you pay, that have nothing to do a cash register.   Nothing to do with retail.  

And nothing that they told you about.  You have to see the fine print.

We show you because you were (no offense intended) too stupid or too gullible to even read the fine print.

100% -- every single Fairtax sucker I met or interacted with, claims they are "well aware" of Fairtax fine print.  

But when I ask them where the fine print is about massive taxes on all cites and states (hundreds of billions of dollars) on their wage and pension expenditures, they have no clue.

So I have to show them.  Most suckers hate like hell to be corrected, and I don't do it nicely.  If you want this exposed nicely, fine. God to the very polite report by President Bush Tax Advisory Panel, which said in a delicate way exactly what I am saying and showing in a blunt, even caustic way.

If you read this, you will be offended by what I tell you, and I apologize for that. I really do not know how to relay this information in a way so polite that Fairtax suckers will not be offended.


But look at the fine print!!

We show you the 300 "other words" tucked away, here and there.  Those show a deeply fraudulent and goofy scheme. 

Still, as you will see, even though Fairtax itself is a fraud, let's pass it anyway.  No I'm not kidding. We can get rid of the entire tax code, and start over.  And the next tax code, we won't believe lying bastards who pushed this magical plan. We will read the fine print.

warning- - cursing ahead. I think it's warranted,but if it offends you, sorry, don't go further.




Never fails.  Ask a Fairtax sucker (including me, when I was a sucker) what NIPA is, and they have no clue. None. Zero. 

Fairtax hustlers never mention it.

But NIPA is at the heart of Fairtax Fraud.   Hustlers sorta told you .... if you found all their documents and read them very very closely. 

Everything "NIPA" defines as personal or governmental consumption"  is taxed 30%.   That's what their documents say, simply put.

Yes, retail sales are included, so that's taxed 30%.

But what you don't know -- can't possibly know -- from Fairtax books, videos and speeches, is that a woman with cancer, even on Medicare, would be liable (without exception) a 30,000 fed tax if she "consumes" 100,000 dollars of good and services, even if Medicare pays that.

The person "using or consuming the goods or services is liable for the tax."

No exceptions.   Fairtax revenue is based on collecting massive taxes that are impossible to pay.

The "cancer tax" on Medicare patients is just a tiny tiny fraction of those impossible other taxes.


"Hey Dallas Texas!  You owe use 160 million!"

Not just "natural persons" are taxed on all "consumption expenditures".

All government entities are a very special kind of "person".

According to their own attorney -- Fairtax official #2  man, David Bennett, this defintion of a person not only means all city county and states have to pay 30% tax on all their expenditures (including wage and pensions)  but this defintion is entirely sufficient, according to Bennett, to notify all city county and states of the huge taxes they would owe.

And even more goofy, even more impossible, is that all city governments would owe 30% tax on their "consumption expenditures"  of things like wage expenditures, pension expenditures, operational expenditures. 

Remember, Bennett does not deny this, he can not deny it. It's in their fine print, and their math depends on it.

All those things, and much more, are in the "tax base".



If your state- "expends"  10 billion dollars in wages and benefits, for a court system and prison system, your state would owe almost  300 million in taxes to the federal government. 

Yes. That is not misapplying anything. This is exactly how Fairtax "tax base" and math works.  Not kinda, not sorta, not in a way.  

Remember, this is the "tax base" trick.

A tax base of ONLY retail sales would collect 1.4 - 1,8 trillion in tax revenue.

But Fairtax needs to show 3.4 to 3.6 Trillion in revenue.    Where does that extra 2 trillion in revenue come from?

The other goofy taxes in the fine print.

California expends almost 100 billion dollars a year in various "expenditures"   That's about 30 billion they would owe. 

California state legislature would have to send that in.  It is not paid at the cash register.  

And, every county in California. Every city.  Every park district. Every library district. 

All those entities would have to issue checks for the operational expenditures, and the  pensions, the wages, the capital expenditures, and then ON TOP of that, send a 30% tax to the fed government.
Or as the lying bastards at Fairtax put it, "remit". 

Fairtax does "remove" from the tax base all education expenditures.  But all other expenditures -- they tax.

Not just retail sales.

How is the "government" a  person?   And a very very special person?

Their definitions. In a long rambling goofy definition, they define persons in a strange but deliberate way.  All governments are not only persons, but a special kind of persons.

Humans-- natural persons -- will not have to pay 30% tax on wage pension expenditures, for example. But city county and states, even the federal government, are in a class of persons that must pay these huge taxes.  Yes they have the government paying itself the largest amount of taxes.   

But -- see their footnotes -- they do "assume"  city county and states will "raise their tax rates" sufficiently to pay it.

Let me repeat that. Their footnote says they "assume" city county and states will raise their tax rates to pay this.   That would be over a trillion dollars in taxes, and it's goofy as goofy gets.

Remember, it's not the only goofy thing in their fine print. It's just ONE of the many goofy things.  But they had no choice.  If they were going to make the math add up on paper, the lying bastards had to show massive amounts of "consumption expenditures"  in the "tax  base".


Hell no there have no research, we show you what they want suckers to think is "research". And we offer 50K if anyone can show 1 page of that 22million in research into this "very very simple" personal retail sales tax that replaces all other fed taxes.






Fairtax hustlers do not care about that. They had to make their math seem to work, on paper.  So they taxed all consumption expenditures in the fine print double speak.

That's not the only goofy thing in Fairtax, but every goofy thing in the hustle is directly related to making their math seem to work on paper.  

William Gale, head of President Bush Tax Panel,  studied Fairtax fine print tricks.  President Bush heard great things -- from Neal Boortz -- about Fairtax.   Wisely, Bush had someone read the fine print: his tax panel.

It was not that hard -- the Bush Panel eats fine print tricks for breakfast, and spits them out for lunch.  Still, you don't need a PhD to unravel the fraud.  Just read the fine print closely, and don't believe a damn thing the hustlers say.  If you assume Fairtax is a retail sales tax, as they claim, you can easily miss the massive other taxes in the fine print.

Why on earth would President Bush Tax Panel claim Fairtax taxes all city county and state expenditures?  All expenditures, in fact, including federal expenditures?

Why would Gale say such a stupid thing?

Because it's in Fairtax fine print, and their math is based on it.


Yes they do tax retail sales, but that's only a small part of what they tax. You pay not only the retail sales tax, you pay drastically more and larger taxes on top of, in addition to, that retail sales tax.

Hannity and Huckabee, paid speakers at Fairtax rallies. 

What other taxes -- not just retail sales taxes? 

Retail sales tax is the SMALLEST part of Fairtax, overall. Of 3.5 trillion in revenue, roughly 1.4 trillion would be retail sales tax.

The other 2.1 Trillion would be the "other taxes" -- on things that have nothing to do with retail sales. 

Other taxes -- like the 20 billion dollar tax on state legislature of California, 16 billion dollar tax on Texas state legislature,  900 million dollar tax on New York City, 180 million dollar tax on Chicago, 2.2 billion dollar tax on Los Angles County, etc etc etch.

And Fairtax never told anyone of these massive other taxes in any clear way, in fact, the lying bastards did all they could to make that unknowable.

All city county and states are supposed to "raise their tax rates"  to pay this. That's the assumption in a Fairtax footnote.

Remember that, a FOOTNOTE, in a document you would not see unless I told you, "assumes" all city county and state's taxes will rise -- dramatically.

And that's only the beginning of their bullshit deception.

If you only read Fairtax books, listened to Fairtax speeches and videos, you literally could not know anything real about the basic taxes in Fairtax.  


Other impossible taxes ---they tax all Medicare and Medicaid patient 30% on their consumption of cancer surgery (all medical consumption).

So yes, they tax you 30% on a new car, but  they also tax you 30,000 dollars, regardless of your income, if you "consume"  cancer surgery and chemo.

Yet Fairtax does not collect a dime in Social Security or Medicare taxes.  There is no accounting or special fund for them to pay for Social Security. Fairtax suckers are so stupid (really) they didn't notice.   The absurdity could not be greater.  These lying bastards actually tax "expenditures"  there is no funding for.

In their revenue projections (their tax base) is all Social Security and Medicare expenditures.  They dare not remove those "expenditures" or the fraudulent math would not seem to work.   They tax an 800 billion dollar expenditure that they don't fund. In other words, they just make this shit up.

And they know it.


You have plenty already to know Fairtax is a goofy fraud, and was never intended to pass.   Fairtax hustlers are not stupid, they know it won't pass.  It sounds good, and they want to raise money on it, fool some stupid people -- politics. 



Never mind if it's fair to tax a cancer victim 30,000 dollars just because they fight back against the disease.  Is it even possible to collect 30,000 dollars or more from such patients?

Hell no it's not possible.  But see the tax tables, that "consumption" is in the "tax base".

Tax base is what they tax.


Another example, a city (as you will see) who has 40 million dollars a year "expenditure"  on police wages and pensions, for example, would owe almost 10 million in "Fair Taxes".

How the hell is that a retail sales?   It's not. How the hell is cancer surgery a retail sale?   It's not.

And why the hell should a cancer victim be taxed 40,000 dollars more than their economic twin, just because she fought cancer??

But most crazy of all, any and all cancer victims would owe 30,000 dollars per 100,000 of cancer care, surgery, chemo, rehab -- regardless of income! 

Fairtax fine print is that the "person using or consuming" the goods or services is liable, without exception.

And that is basic to their math.  If Fairtax exempted cancer victims, for example, or did not tax health care consumption, that 30% would have to skyrocket to 45%.

Likewise, if they exempted all their goofy hidden taxes,  Fairtax would need to show an 89% tax rate.  Instead, they claim a 30% tax rate, then have all these other goofy bullshit impossible taxes in the double talk, footnotes, and fine print tricks.


Remember, they DO NOT just tax personal retail sales, nor personal consumption.  They tax (and if you read all their fine print bullshit closely) much much more.   

They have to hide these massive other taxes or their suckers would not be suckers. So they do. We show you were the lying bastards hid these taxes. 

Whatever is in their "TAX BASE"  is, by definition, taxed.   That is what a tax base means.  It does not mean anything else.  When they show you their tax base is all personal and government consumption expenditures (without exception)  that means everything a city county and state has as "consumption expenditures"  is taxed.

  All city, county, state, and federal EXPENDITURES,  not just retail purchases, are in the tax base.


This is their OWN document.

Laurence J Kotlikoff was paid to put this shit out.   Bruce Bartlett, a friend of Kotlikoff apparently, said Laurence did "very well" working for Fairtax.

Fairtax hustlers  call these goofy shit documents by Kotlikoff  "research" - but it's anything but research.

They claim there is 22 million dollars of research -- and this is what the refer to as research!  

Did Kotlikoff lie?  Yes, we think so, because he supported the impression Fairtax was a rational plan on taxing "sales".  But in the fine print he has drastically different details, and cleverly uses footnotes, definition absurdities, and "assumptions"  that are goofy as hell.  None of those things are explained in anything put out to the public by the likes of Boortz, Huckabee, Fairtax videos or speeches.

Hiding goofy ass absurdities in your double talk is anything but research, it's the opposite of research.

Can they actually tax all city county and states on all (or any) of their consumption expenditures?  No, they can not. Nor do they actually expect to.  They are not stupid, they are lying bastards.   They don't even tell city county and states about this. They only have it in their very clever fine print.

Do you think Dallas Texas city council is going to "remit"  as Fairtax says, 100 million dollars as a tax on their expenditures? 

And how the hell is a pension paid OUT by Dallas a retail sales tax?  Of course it's not a retail sale, purchase, etc.  

HELL NO, they won't remit a damn dime.  

And of course, the lying bastards at Fairtax know this. They are not stupid, they are lying bastards -- yet you can technically, if you like, say they are not lying, because in a few words here and there, in documents you never see, they have those massive other taxes.

But they ARE lying bastards because they give quite the opposite impression. 

 The fact they have "research" documents and there put bullshit and distortions does not mean they are not lying, it actually shows what lying fucks they are.

Who the hell spends all this time and money to put out this bullshit they know is impossible nonsense, but frames it (sells it) as a very simple personal retail sales tax with 22 million in research.

Lying bastards do.  The "research" is not 22 million, and they  don't have 22 dollars worth of "research" to back up their bullshit. Remember this -- the "research" documents are where the put their fraud.  Read it yourself -- read it all, closely.  You don't need me to show you, as long as you can find it all and read it word for word, including the "adoptions"  and footnotes and definitions.

Fairtax does not replace Social Security and Medicare at all.  Despite their slogans that they do, there is not a word of truth to that, because there is no funding for either!     Everyone will just quit paying into to Social Security and Medicare, 100% stoppage of money going in.

 Yet  Fairtax has a tax on all Medicare consumption.

How so?  Because in the math, and in the fine print, all consumption whatsoever is taxed 30%.   Not just retail consumption. Not just personal consumption.

See the charts -- they use TOTAL CONSUMPTION, all personal and all governmental "consumption expenditures".   That's in their fine print and math.

They do "remove" education from the tax base.  They do not remove anything else.  See the "consumption"  trick here. 

They do tell you, if you read it all very very closely. 

All consumption.  Not just retail consumption,  but all "consumption expenditures".    The Bush Tax Panel found the absurdity  easily,  because they gathered all Fairtax documents. 

Yes, retail sales are in the tax base -- but also in the tax base, all Medicare, military, NASA, is preposterously in their tax base.   In fact, retail sales is only a small part of Fairtax.  

 They never show any examples of taxing a medicaid patient, yet all Medicaid patients would be taxed, because all such expenditures are "in the tax base".

Do they really intend to tax a destitute woman fighting breast cancer 40,000 dollars?  Of  course not!

So why have all those expenditures in the tax base?

To make it look like their tax rate would be 23 or 30%.

Oh hell no, the tax rate, if they taxed retail purchase only, would be 89%.

They don't dare show that. 

And look at their calculator trick -- see below for that. Who the fuck makes up an elaborate "calculator" that, as you will see, gives you quite the opposite impression of the truth?

 That's how devious the bastards are -- they tax expenditures that they defund.  Let that sink in.

The research documents are where they put most of the clever bullshit. Research is NOT hiding goofy impossible bullshit in a few words that are the opposite of your basic sales pitch.

Do you think a woman who makes 20K a year can, will, or should pay 40,000 in federal taxes because she "consumed"  210,000 dollars in surgery, chemo and rehab?     Yet everyone who "consumes" such expenditures are liable without exception.  Why would they tax such people, on paper?

Because they needed their fraud to seem to add up on paper.


I am not the only one that noticed it -- President Bush Tax Panel exposed this fraud (they didn't call it a fraud, they were too polite).  They showed that Fairtax had in the fine print just what I show you, but they are academic in public about it.  

It was not hard -- they just had to read the damn fine print closely. Gather it all, and read it, including what I show you below.  Faritax lying bastards clearly wanted to make it so the average reader could not grasp what they were saying, because they put a few words here, a few there, and gave quite the opposite impression overall.  Certainly in their books, videos, speeches, they gave a drastically fraudulent impression, but it sounded so good.

And all those claims of RESEARCH! 

In private the Bush Tax Panel chairman said of Fairtax lying bastards  "they lie a lot".  He did not elaborate that I know any further than that,  but clearly he was referring 


There is an exception -- they "remove from the tax base"  all education expenditures.

  That means all other expenditures, like  police and fireman expenditures, pensions, disability, are in the tax base.   We will say this several times so  you understand.

They not only SAY they tax such expenditures in this clever document, their math tables show, yes indeed, their clever math depends on the absurdity of collection almost a trillion dollars of taxes from city county and states on their police, firefighters, water, sewer, court system, etc etc.  Whatever they spend, (exception on education) they owe 30% tax on that to the federal government.

And that is just one of the absurdities. Not even the biggest one, as it turns out.

At least theoretically all city county and states could pay all this money and raise their tax rates accordingly (see below).  So it's possible, though no city county and state will, nor can they make them pay.

But the PERSONAL CONSUMPTION expenditures are goofy as hell. This includes, for example, all CONSUMPTION of Medicare and Medicaid.  All that "consumption" is taxed, to the person using or consuming it.  It's in their fine print, see it below.

So a woman who makes 20K a year, who has cancer, and is on Medicare, or simply is on nothing, would have to pay 60,000 dollar tax on her "consumption" of 200,000 in cancer surgery, chemo, rehab, etc.

A man who has a child who has luekemia, another example, who consumes 200,000 dollars in goods and services for that child, would likewise owe that same 60K in taxes.  He may make 10K a year, or 40K. Does not matter, income is not taxed.

That consumption, all consumption (see their tax tables) is taxed 30%. That's how they arrive at the tax rate.   It would take a 30% tax rate, on all consumption expenditures, to arrive at a "revenue neutral fashion"   the same government revenue all the other taxes bring in. 

And if you don't believe that, keep reading.


As you will see, when you understand their math tables, this means they collect a tax (or pretend to) of 30% on all personal consumption and governmental  consumption expenditures. 

urns out, NIPA is a BFD (Big F***** Deal)  in Fairtax. Nothing is bigger.   And it's in their OWN fine print, in their own documents.   Not in a clear way, not in any Fairtax Book. Not in any Fairtax speech.  In fact, Fairtax books, speeches, slogans, videos, all give exactly the opposite impression.    The impression that they tax "personal consumption"  in a rational way, and with this simple retail sales tax on personal consumption, they replace all other fed taxes.

Not even close. Not remotely close, because of their "NIPA" trick. 


Go read the fine print yourself -- if you can find it all.  That is the best way, see for yourself.

President Bush asked his Tax Panel to report on Fairtax, after Neal Boortz told the President all kinds of great sounding slogans,  which he repeated in his fraudulent (yes, fraudulent) book "Fairtax Book".    Many Fairtax suckers think they are experts in Fairtax because (seriously) they read Neal's fraudulent book.

When you see the fine print, you may realize, Neal lied his ass off. Or to be politically correct, Neal "omitted" a few "details",

But you probably can't even find it all --and that is by design.  Fairtax hustlers did not put all their fine print tricks in one place. Rather, they put a few words here, a few there, in documents online, in clever "assumptions" and footnotes that we show you.


I show you exactly what President Bush Tax Advisory Panel found, only I am not polite about the fraud. 

Let me repeat that. I show you what the Tax Panel showed, only I'm blunt about it.  The tax panel was polite.  

The tax showed that without all the insane impossible nonsense in the fine print, the Fairtax rate would be 89% or more. It was not that hard, nothing magical about how they found that. They just read all the documents, including footnotes, definitions, and all the words.

For example, when Fairtax documents said they tax all "consumption expenditures"  of persons and governmental levels "without exception",  the Tax Panel paid attention.

Consumption expenditures is a weasel, sneaky ass term, and the Tax Panel (as I did) had to check the tax revenue tables to be sure.  But yes, indeed, all governmental expenditures, including US military expenditures (!)  capital expenditures (!)  payroll and pensions (!) and everything else is in the "tax base".

And tax base, as the Tax Panel knows, even if Fairtax suckers do not, means by defintion that is what they pretend to tax.

That's right -- using real math,  not the bullshit, fraudulent, goofy ass crap the Fairtax hustlers tell you -- a personal retail sales  Fairtax rate would need to be 89% or more.


If you can find the fine print, and read it slowly, you don't need me to show you much.


Fairtax is, more than anything, an example of how stupid people will fall again, and again, for bullshit and lies, if those lies are told by self confident bastards.  Nothing unusual about this -- except Fairtax wrote fine print we can see.

But so much in politics, particularly the hate cults, the tea party goons, the Trump lunatics, is bullshit and lies by self confident bastards.  Those have no fine print.  Flat tax is an example -- they wisely have no fine print for you to see.   Ending NATO, a Trump dream planted by his puppet master Putin, has no fine print. Just slogans.

Be careful about self confident hate mongers -- they will have you hate people and ideas you  could otherwise learn from or admire. They can even get you to imprison or kill people you should admire.
This is not new, this business of self confident liars fooling stupid people. It's as old as the hills, and it's never going away.  

My suggestion is -- always have doubts, read fine print if there is any, and ask lots of questions. Cherish doubt.  Doubt is your friend.



 And I put my money where my mouth is.  See my offer, a legally binding offer, below. I offer 50,000 dollars for 1 page of that 22 million $ of "research" they claim proves their "very very simple personal retail sales tax" will replace all other fed taxes in a "revenue neutral" fashion.  

There is no research. 

I don't mean their research is wrong, I am saying THERE IS NONE. There is not 22 million, or 22 thousand, or 22 dollars of research about Fairtax "very very simple"  personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes, including Social Security and Medicare.

When you understand that there is -- literally -- no such research, you will know what lying bastards they are.  

Oh, they have documents, yes. I show you those documents. I get my information from THEIR documents.   From their own words, in their own footnotes, their own definitions, their own math tables.

It's there -- in a way to fool you, not inform you. But it's there.


There is not a post it note, not a lap top, not an office, not anything devoted to "research" about this very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

Why?  Because  Fairtax is not a retail sales tax any more than my my dog is a professional basketball player.  And I don't even have a dog.  Documents filled with bullshit distortions, intended to deceive you, is the opposite of research.  This is what we mean by research. 

Seems amazing, right?  All these "economic participants"  (a meaningless term)

At one point they claimed 82 "top economist" designed Fairtax -- so I contacted about a dozen of those "economist" and could not find any that supported Fairtax that knew what was in the fine print. Not only did they not "design"  Fairtax, they had no idea what was in the fine print, except one guy (see below) who was part of the fraud and got paid to be part of the hustle. 

Do you think MIT and Harvard and NBER  are for Fairtax? 

 That's the impression these lying bastards give you.  You think, oh, all these great claims were vetted, looked at, and they knew all about the fine print.

 Oh hell no.  No one at Harvard or MIT ever did research on Fairtax as described in their clever fine print.  And if there is one page of that 22 million dollars of research, I will pay you 50K for it, just see details below.

That's a clue -- claim 22 million in research, but can't show a page of actual research.


 Dale Jorgenson, the way Boortz cleverly tells you in Fairtax Book, not only came up with Fairtax, he proved endless great things -- like 50%  increase in take home pay. Like 47% more corporate profits.  On, and on. Whatever the lying bastards made up, they just made it seem like they had "research" to prove it.

They didn't have any research. I show you what they put out as research.

But Jorgenson not only is against Fairtax, he would not be for the goofy fraudulent lying bastards tricky fine print tricks.  No rational person would be, unless they were paid or fooled by the hustle.   They never had him stupid the goofy ass fine print tricks. 

Others have sold this fraud too.  Steve Moore on FOX comes to mind. Moore tells you  nothing remotely true about Fairtax. He just repeats the slogans and fraudulent claims of research.  Either by stupidity or deception, he does not.  



You need to know what's in Fairtax,  like the fine print about massive goofy impossible tax on all cancer victims.  

DYK even cancer victims on Medicare would be personally liable for 23,000 dollars in fed taxes,  just because they "consumed" 100K in surgery and chemo?  No exceptions whatsoever.

Fairtax math is based on such goofy nonsense.  Of course they know the poor can't and wont pay billions of dollars in taxes because they fought cancer.  So why include these goofy taxes in the fine print?

So their fraudulent math can add up, or seem to, on paper.

Even if every cancer victim could pay massive taxes -- (and they can not) -- why the hell place massive taxes on someone for getting sick anyway?

Before you can realize these lying bastards don't have any research about it, and certainly not 22 million dollars of research to support it. 

I show you what these lying bastards (yes, they are lying bastards)  claim is research.  When you understand what's it their "research" documents, unless you are an idiot, you will understand Fairtax is not even rational, and it's sure as hell not a simple personal retail sales tax.  

Their fraud, in other words, IS their research.  That's where these lying bastards put the fraud-  in goofy ass documents that are not research, though they hope suckers think so.  

       Both of these men were paid to push Fairtax.  Caine was too stupid to know it was all a fraud -- Boortz was well aware of the fraud, and did all he could to pass it off as legit.  And yes, he was paid to do this.


I offered Boortz 50K to any charity if he could show 1 page of that 22 million in research, same offer I make here to anyone (details below).  If you read the rest of this, you will understand why Neal can't show any, and runs like a coward from this offer, and has blocked people on twitter who even dare to ask him about it. 

By the way, the offer to Boortz is still open.  As is the offer to anyone else. 

"A very very simple retail sales tax on personal consumption," said Neal Boortz.

"The only problem will be where to put the money,"  said Neal Boortz.

"22 million dollars of extensive research,"  said Neal Boortz.

And he knew it was a lie, the entire time.  Why not just show 1 page of that research and get 50K for charity?    Because he can not show it, it does not exist. 

A "very very simple"  retail sales tax.  Voluntary, because you can avoid nearly all fed taxes - just buy used. Used cars, used houses. And that 720 billion dollar prebate -- every citizen in the US gets a check every month from the government, for the taxes on "necessities".

And all that "research".   The most "studied economic plan in history"  Neal Boortz said, 22 million dollars of research!

So yeah, I fell for it. Why would I doubt Neal Boortz, and those "80 top economists"
who "developed" Fairtax.

I was surprised, however, to find no one would admit to "developing"  Fairtax, and that research was not only goofy double speak, and profoundly deceptive, (the opposite of research).  What they tried to sell us as "research"  was actually where they put most of the fraudulent double speak.

Confused?  Don't be. I show you what they tried to sell as research, and why there is no actual research at all, about this "very very simple"  personal  retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

Much less 22 million dollars worth.


And more -- all prices drop 22%, US companies increase production 47% the first year, and your paycheck?  The "average" increase in take home pay is 50%, said Boortz in the "Fairtax Book".

And with a straight face -- the only problem will be what to do with all the money.  22 million in research. Who would lie about that?

This simple sales tax to replace all other fed taxes, including Social Security, Medicare, income, corporate taxes.  You would still get social security and Medicare, you would get much higher take home pay (50% more) and prices drop.

Absolutely none of that was true.

 There is no such research. We show you what they claim is research, and you decide for yourself what kind of lying bastards would call that research. 

 In fact, Fairtax, started out as a fund raising scam, by Scientologist. Not as a way to actually get this preposterous tax going, but to raise money. We name names below -- who the frauds are.  By frauds, we mean trying to raise money based on distortions and lies.

They put it together, and sold it, to raise money. It sounded great. 

Then some politicians (Huckabee for example)  stumbled upon it, and it sounded so great, they decided to sell it politically to the public. 


I fell for Fairtax.  Then I read the fine print.   Strange thing reading, you can find out quite a bit.  The problem with Fairtax fine print, however, is that they refuse to put it all in one place. 

A few documents here, a few "assumptions there.   

Fairtax hustlers even added clever footnotes, where they "assumed"  goofy ass nonsense. "Assume" in such documents means "we pretend".    They "assume"  city county and states will pay massive goofy impossible taxes, that they never make clear anywhere, but have as the basis of the 3.5 trillion dollars of projected revenue.

My my, but the way they make it seem -- like it's got to be a legit, even brilliant thing. No, it's a goofy fraud, nicely typed.  And the lying bastards did this deliberately.  Just the same as their fraudulent "Fairtax calculator"  that did not let you compare anything required a lot of work and effort, all the while knowing they were misleading folks.   There is nothing in Fairtax that is remotely honest, but it sounds so good!


They may as well "assume" (pretend) they will get 2 trillion dollars from a tax on moonbeams and baby farts. But that might draw your attention, even if they put it in a footnote. And yes, it is that goofy.  Not kinda, not sorta. The retail tax is fine -- that's not the problem.  The massive other taxes are the problem.

That's pretty much their fraud in a nut shell.  Sure the slogans are great - but the slogans are bogus, they are part of the fraud.

The most important document is the one about their "tax base".

Tax base is by definition what they tax.  If you understand their tricky ass "tax base" document, you will understand what lying bastards they are to sell this nonsense as a simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes."
 I offer 50,000 dollars for one page -- if anyone (including you) can show one page-- of that 22 million dollars of research about this very simple personal retail sales tax, that will replace "dollar for dollar" all other fed taxes, including Social Security taxes, Medicare taxes, corporate taxes, etc. See more details about this very real offer, below. 

FAIRTAX HAS A SALES TAX.   That's not the problem

The Problem is the "other" taxes on top of, in addition to, the retail sales tax.  Most of Fairtax taxes has nothing to do with retail sales, as this chart shows.   Only, they made damn sure no Fairtax sucker could reasonably spot the massive other taxes, because of the fraudulent (purposely misleading) way they contradicted their slogans, in the fine print, a few words here, a few there, in documents flung all over the place.

IF Fairtax only taxed retail sales, an honest chart would show that. Fairtax has no chart at all, showing what they tax.  

This chart could be partly wrong -- it's an approximation.

Ask Fairtax " hustler"  to show a chart that makes it clear what revenue they project to collect on retail sales, and what other sources of revenue do they depend on?

They won't tell you, of course, because as lying bastards (some are not liars, some are just stupid and fooled by the liars) they made sure you could not know any of this, unless you bothered to read every word, in every document, every footnote, and every assumption.   


Yes, all those "expenditures"  are in the tax base. By definition, what they put in the tax base, they tax. 

Not one Fairtax sucker -- not one -- has any clue that most of Fairtax revenue would come from impossibly large, goofy nonsense taxes they included in the fine print to make their math work on paper.

Fairtax hustlers know they can't tax Chicago for 190 million dollars a year, as a tax on their wage, pensions, and operational expenditures.  And they know their suckers are stupid, but not so stupid they would believe all cities counties and states would pay these huge taxes. 

  So they just didn't tell their suckers, except in very clever, very disjointed, very fraudulent fine print.

That is why Fairtax hustlers put these "other taxes" in the fine print we show you.  They sure as hell did not tell their suckers about the other taxes.

What other taxes?

Well, massive taxes on cities for one thing.  

These massive taxes on city county and states would be a stunning surprise to every mayor, every alderman, every body, because Fairtax never told anyone.. Yes, the mentioned that city county and states would pay RETAIL sales taxes.   But in the fine print -- and importantly in the projected revenue -- they  have massive taxes on all city county and states, for "all expenditures"  including wage expenditures, pension expenditures, capital expenditures.   If your city has a sewer and water system that "expends" in wages, operational costs,  10 million dollars, your city would owe 2.3 million dollars just on that one thing.

Does your city have a police department?  Fire Department?  That's likely 30 million in a modest city like Peoria Illinois.  Think Peoria Ill city council -- who has no clue about these massive other taxes, are just going to gather up 7 or 8 million dollars as a tax just on the fire and police department, and send it in?

Do you really think Chicago, and LA, and Dallas, and Keokuk Iowa, and Steamboat Springs -- all cites -- will send in massive amounts of money (23% tax on all expenditures, other than education)?

And remember  - Fairtax lying bastards hustlers never told them, at all. Not once, not ever, in 16 years. Not one city official, not one state official, could possibly know of these massive other taxes they would own (over 1 trillion) because the only place anyone can find them in is the double talk footnotes and clever misleading BS in the fine print, like Footnote 19, below.

Like "we assume" all city county and states will raise their tax rates "sufficiently".   Like their charts on "tax base"  and tax revenue.

They cleverly, in a damn footnote, in a document  you never see unless someone like me shows you, assume all city county and states will pay massive amounts of taxes and then raise their tax rates to pay it. 

Did Boortz, or anyone mention anything remotely like this in Fiartax book or any speech, any video, any book? Hell no.

So hell no city county and states won't send it in, and Fairtax lying bastards are not about to try to force them.  They know it's bullshit. They wrote the bullshit!

But they had to include these massive other taxes to make the math work -- to make the "tax base"  high enough.  Here is about as close as you will get for Fairtax hustlers to give you a clue what they tax, in total.  

That's the total "consumption"  of the US in those years. The total consumption is essentially their "tax base".

They tax everything in that "tax base"  23%.    All medicare expenditures are in that tax base  All military expenditures are in that tax base. All city county and state expenditures, including capital expenditures, pension and pay expenditures, are in the tax base.    Goofy as hell -- because this is the basis of their math.   Do you think Chicago city council will send in 150 million dollars or more, because of some tricky ass double speak in a document they never see, and are never told about? 

This is their own document. 

I'm always amazed when Fairtax cult members contact me and say "you never showed us anything."  But once you are fooled by lying bastards -- really - it's hard to be unfooled, especially when that lying bastard is your cult daddy..

 I show you their own fine print, like this.  And I show you were I got it. 

Here is the link.  Use it.

Please don't email me and claim I showed no documents from Fairtax. This is one of many I show.  

Fairtax clever deceptive fraud. Read the fine print yourself

Go on, go look at the damn thing yourself. 

Written cleverly as possible to make you think Fairtax is some kind of retail sales tax -- but the details are drastically, fraudulently, different.

Read it closely.  And remember, it's the "research"  they told suckers costs 22 million and proves all kinds of great things about a simple personal retail sales tax.

It gives the impression that this is some kind of retail sales tax, but what do pensions, capital expenditures, wages, death benefits, etc etc have to do with retail sales?

Their tax base is a hell of a lot more than retail sales -- in fact, retail sales is only a small portion of what they tax.

In that "tax base" is even all  federal government expenditures- -including military spending.  That's "in the tax base".  By definition, what they put in the tax base, is taxed.

So you think the Pentagon is going to send in about 220 billion?  If you think that you are an idiot. But suppose the Pentagon will actually send it 220 billion. Where they hell are they going to get that money?

Government "investment" includes wages pensions capital expenditures.


The only thing not in Fairtax "tax base" -- therefore the only thing not taxed, is education expenditures.

And they tell you this in a FOOTNOTE, in a document most Fairtax suckers are too stupid to read if you sat them down and put it in front of their faces.


Same thing with the state if Iowa, Illinois, California, NY.  You think the Illinois legislature is going to send it 140 billion?  Seriously?  In advance or not?

You think they are going to send this in?   These are not sales taxes, paid at a cash register at Walmart.

These are taxes on wage expenditures, capital expenditures, pension expenditures -- all expenditures other than education expenditures.

You think Dallas Texas city council  will send in over 160 million? And no one even told them???

If so, if you believe that, you are a dumb ass, and get off this page.

But that is what has to happen, for fairtax math to work.  They count, as a given, that all city county and states are going to "remit" they huge impossible and unconstitutional as hell taxes. 

So they of course never told suckers "we tax the pentagon 212 billion a year".  Even fairtax suckers would go "uh"?

But they have all such spending in the "tax base".  If something is in the tax base, it's taxed.  That's what a tax base is, by definition -- what they tax is the tax base.

It's in their own damn fine print -- if you can find all their fine print, and read it very very closely.

SEE HOW  they cleverly turn wage, pension and capital spending into "expenditures"   I show you the exact part of their fine print that does that.  It's a few words here, and there.   That's not an accident. These lying bastards put a lot of work into definitions, "assumptions"  and tax base sleight of hand. But you can argue the fine print lying bastards were not the problem (though they deliberately made it nearly impossible to know candidly what they were talking about in any given document).  

It's the hustlers, the ones that told us Fairtax was rational, fair, researched -- it's not fair, it's not researched, it's a goofy fraud.  They sold this as a very very simple personal retail sales tax. Oh ehll no, it's a goofy fraud. 

 Certain "WAGES"   are in the "tax base"

Taxable employer is liable for the tax.

All government "expenditures"  including capital investments, are in the tax base.    City county and states are supposed to pay this -- IN ADVANCE.

Hilarious, all city, county, and states are taxed massively -- and in ADVANCE.

Yes advance. An "advance" tax on wage expenditures, pension expenditures, capital expenditures. Yes they tax all those expenditures?     See their fine print tricks if you don't believe me.

 A 23% tax on every city county and state -- on all wage, pension, and capital investments. In advance or not, this is goofy bullshit and impossible, very unconstitutional, plus  no state city or county even knows. Fairtax never told anyone, except in bullshit double talk in the fine print. 


FOOTNOTE.  They tell you this ONLY in a footnote. IN a document you would never see, if I did not show it to you.

They sure as hell never mention this in any book, video or speech.  Gee, I wonder why they never mentioned it.

It's the biggest part of Fairtax, and they never mention it. 


If Fairtax only taxed "personal consumption"  like Fairtax books, videos and speeches claim,  the tax rate would need to be about 89%.

So why do they show a 23% tax?

Only 1.4 trillion in taxes could possibly come from retail sales --yet these lying bastards show 3.5 trillion in revenue. 

So what else do they tax? Retail sales taxes on personal purchases would bring in about 1.4.  But they show 3.5 trillion in income.

They had to "fudge" the numbers to get another 2 trillion or so. That 2 trillion dollars is the tax on other things -- other than simple personal retail sales taxes.d

Like all military spending. Yes they tax military spending.

All police wages, pensions and operational costs.  Your city "expends" 20 million on  cops and their benefits?  Your city would owe almost five million in taxes to the fed government.

See, everything in their tax base is taxed 23%.   In the tax base are all  city county and state expenditures. Federal expenditures too.

The only exception -- education. No exception for military.   No exception for police or public works. No exception for fire departments, libraries, capital expenditures.  Your city "expends"  40 million for new court house? Guess what -- your city owes about 10 million in taxes -- in advance.


Oh they did tell you -- yes they did.   Not in books, videos or speeches, hell no.  But if you found all their documents, and read those bastards very closely,  you could stumble onto this kind of shit. See it here..

And its sure as hell is not a retail personal sales tax to replace all other fed taxes, including Medicare, Social security, etc. 


Yet they claim 22 million dollars of research.

There is -- literally -- no actual research, and I mean none, about a "very simple personal retail sales tax".  These lying bastards have some goofy documents that (look closely) are the opposite of a very simple retail sales tax.

Then the lying bastards say they have 22 million in research about this very simple retail sales tax.


That's what we mean by fine print tricks.  Or call it lying. Call it  a tomato, the point is, it's not research, these lying bastards have no research.

Hiding goofy nonsense in a few words here and there is not research. It's a fraud, the opposite of research. 






Most people would never notice. We did. So did President Bush Tax Advisory Panel. 


Oh really? Where are they?

We contacted a dozen of those "economists" that they claim "designed"  Fairtax. 

Not they didn't design it, in fact, almost none of those we contacted had any idea what the hell was actually in Fairtax.   Davis Kendall is an example, see below.

David Kendall - they listed him as one of the guys who "designed" Fairtax.  He had no role in "designing" it - - but supported it.

And David had no clue -- really, no clue whatsoever -- what Fairtax actually taxed for most of its revenue.   David just believed the slogans.  Take a peek at HR25, see all that impressive "research"  but don't look too closely, and they can make almost anyone a dumb ass, like David. 

 Yet David was out there, on TV, in front of audiences telling folks how great it was.

And he had no idea what they taxed for most of their revenue. 

He thought the slogans were valid-- no, they were not.

So who actually wrote Fairtax fraud?

 Most of the documents we found were one way or another apparently part of a public relations firm, Beacon Hill.

And Beacon Hill were paid. They were no more doing research than the McDonald billboards are telling you to eat a Big Mac.

Did Beacon Hill actually lie?  Well yes, they sure did, but in a way that you could not exactly call a lie in court, because here and there, they gave to clever footnotes and "assumptions"  and goofy ass definitions. 

They lied their asses off, and knew they were doing to, to the extend they furthered the fraud by Fairtax hustlers about a "very very simple" retail sales tax.

They did no research, remember that.  They did bullshit, and then called it research.

Turns out you can call anything research if you want, but if you gave those lying bastards any money, based on your belief they had all these research (they had none) you could sue them for fraud.

I would. But I never gave them any money.


But Fairtax hustlers do tell you -- a few words here and there.

See those words "without exception"??   Well they do "remove from the tax base"  education expenditures.   But other than that, all expenditures, military expenditures, capital expenditures, pension and defense expenditures, even NASA expenditures, all libraries expenditures, all road and highway expenditures, etc etc, are in the tax base.

And they told you -- see those two words -"without exception".

And that is how they  created their tax revenue projections.


They "adopt" a pre pay approach on taxing these!

That's right - taxed, and taxed IN ADVANCE, per Fairtax clever "we adopt" fine print trick.


Kendall likewise had no idea that Fairtax "assumes"  all city county and states will raise taxes to pay these billions of dollars.  Yes, see the fine print!   Here is that "assumption" .

A Medicare patient, for example, would owe 30,000 or more in fed taxes if she "consumed"  110,000 dollars worth of chemo, surgery, and rehab.

How do they tax cancer surgery and chemo?

In the tax base -- they just "put in the tax base"  all national personal and governmental "expenditures".   They told you that, if you read it very carefully.  But most readers would not even question -- what does that really mean?   When you deal with lying bastards like Fairtax hustlers, you gotta read very carefully. 


All expenditures -- remember that - all expenditures, without exception, all personal  and all governmental "expenditures"  are in the tax base.

They do "remove"  education expenditures - therefore education expenditures are not taxed.  If it's in the tax base, it's taxed.  If it's  not in the tax base, it's not taxed.   Very clever.

And their math is based exactly on that. 




Fairtax Book author Neal Boortz told crowds that "you decide" how much taxes you pay. Very simple -- just buy used cars, and used houses. You can avoid essentially all taxes.

Ever hear of used cancer surgery?

How about used rent? 

How about used car insurance (yes that's taxed)

How about used police and fireman wage "expenditures"? As you will see, all city county and states have to pay a 23% tax on all such "expenditures".     So are there any used police and fireman wage expenditures laying around?

How about used capital investments, like building a library or prison or court house?

Because all such capital investments -expenditures are taxed.  They are taxed because they are in "the tax base".  Tax base by defintion is what they tax.

See any used court houses Chicago can buy and move up there, so they don't have to pay 20 million in tax on that expenditure?

On and on.




Fair Tax "calculator" is hilarious.

Wont ALLOW you to put anything that matters.

Then shows you huge saving! 


The Fairtax  "calculator".

If anyone needs any proof these guys are literally lying bastards, the fraudulent calculator should help you figure it out.

The "DARE TO COMPARE"  calculator as they called it,  literally prevented you comparing anything.

That's right.  They had this amazingly complex "calculator" which asked you a bunch of questions, none of which had anything to do with your taxable expenditures.

 It was not difficult to learn what Fairtax would tax you, or what they would tax you on, it was impossible. 

But they called it "DARE TO COMPARE"  calculator.  Then they made sure you could not compare.  

You don't accidentally make a fraudulent calculator. It took a lot of effort and money. 

No place in the calculator for rent, no place for food, no place for car or health insurance -- all taxed. No place for utilities -- no place for anything, I mean zero place for anything, that mattered.   Nor did they have a "calculator" for city county and states, which would be hit with massive goofy impossible taxes. 



But as you will see the "NIPA"  taxes are massive.  And worse, those taxes can not -- literally can not -- be collected, as you will see. 

Oh the retail sales tax on new products at the store- - no problem.  But the tax would need to be 89%, not 23%.   Boortz and the other hustlers could only make it SEEM like 23%, because they "forgot" to mention the massive other impossible taxes,.


See all the "NIPA" references in Fairtax own document you would never see, if not for me?

Those "NIPA" taxes are a big part of Fairtax's massive other taxes you don't know about.



If they only taxed person retail sales -- and nothing else --  the tax rate would be 89%, as President Bush Tax Panel showed.

 They have massive taxes on city county and states -- and they assume city county and states "will raise your tax rates" to pay for it.  

That would be massive tax increases at all levels -- they do not tell you that, but that's how it would have to work.   Yes, all city, all county, all states pay these taxes per their own fine print.

And, per the fine print, are supposed to raise their tax rates to pay it. I did not say that -- the fucking fine print tricks said that. But you have to actually read them. Not that easy to find, and the narrative-- the impression -- these fuckers give is quite the opposite.

This is from their own fine print, footnote 19, in the document cited. 

Government investment is not just capital spending - but they tax capital expenditures in advance too.   But also taxed are wages, pensions, operational expenditures. 

All expenditures  by your city - taxed 23%.

All expenditures by your state - taxed 23%

All expenditures by our county - taxed 23%.


Mesquite Arizona would owe over 200,000 dollars, of taxes,
just for the pay to these new recruits, for one year!


Mesquite would owe over 14 million overall.


Gee -- the "details"   Fairtax "forgets" to mention in books videos and speeches.  It's only in their very slick bullshit fine print.

I wonder why they didn't mention these "other" taxes in their books, videos and speeches?   Not once. Not in 16 years.

Not in any book.  Not in any speech. Not in any video.    Weird. That's a lot of forgetting -- or a lot of  lying, by lying bastards. 



10 YEARS AGO.... 

.... everything we show you has been exposed politely, over a decade ago.  The facts are not in dispute, because we use Fairtax own documents. Remember that, we show you fairtax own documents. 


Want  to see President Bush polite report exposing Fairtax fraud?  

Okay, it's right HERE

 Link opens to part 8.   The polite discussion of Fairtax, is part 9.


JAMES BENNETT -- number two man in Fairtax fraud, claimed the single word "person" in this long defintion, is the "legal basis" for massive taxes on all cities, all counties, and all states.

Let me repeat that. Bennett is the number 2 man in Fairtax heirarchy.

He is an attorney.

He told me that this word -- this ONE word -- is the "legal basis"  for city county state and federal government obligation, under Fairtax, to pay 30% tax on all expenditures, other than education expenditures.

No other notice is needed, Bennett told me. He had "no plans" to further explain that all city county and states, even the federal government, must "remit" a 30% tax on all wage, pensions, capital expenditures, all expenditures, other than education expenditures.


Bennett was not some goofy ass drunk at a bar saying this.

Bennett was an is an official Fairtax spox.  He is an attorney.  

He claims -- not me -- that this one word in the definition is the legal basis for massive taxes no city county or state knows about.

No reasonable person could know about this, the definition is so goofy, and well tucked away,.

Yet, indeed, Fairtax math is based on all city county and states, even the federal government, paying 30% tax on all expenditures.  NOT just retail purchases but all expenditures.


When we asked Bennett how city county and states were supposed to know that -- because they never mention it in books videos or speeches, Bennett said "It's clear enough already..... if they have any questions, they can call me."

Bennett said city and states will of course know -- "they deal with fine print all the time".

This is the kind of shit they put endlessly in Fiartax HR25.

         ``(3) Designated commercial private courier service.--The 
        term `designated commercial private courier service' means a 
        firm designated as such by the Secretary or any sales tax 
        administering authority, upon application of the firm, if the

                    ``(B) records electronically to its data base kept

        courses. Such term does not include room, board, sports 
        activities, recreational activities, hobbies, games, arts or  
        crafts or cultural activities.

All cities are supposed to read that definition, way down in there, and somehow KNOW they are supposed to send over 1 trillion dollars into the fed government?

Where do send these many billions?  Hell, they don't give you an address.  They don't ever make it clear there is such a tax, it's in their own tax base documents.  It's how their math adds up. 

But they never make it clear. 

And city county and states - by their own fine print -- are supposed to raise all tax rates, to pay it. That's in their own document they call "research".  But stated in a way you would not notice it, even if you found that document.

Fairtax cleverly never tells you that in books, videos or speeches. 




Anyone can get the 50K -- this is a serious, legit, binding offer. 

First person who can show 1 page of that 22million dollars of research, showing Fairtax is a 23%  very simple personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes,  in a "revenue neutral fashion"  as they say, I give them 50,000 dollars. 

 Full details on the offer is below. 

This is research, and they do not have a dollars worth of it, much less 22 million dollars of it.




Show us that one, please!

Boortz told us, in Fairtax book, as if he had all this research right there, that the "average" take home pay will go up 50%.

Uh -- actually nothing in their research shows that.  Nothing.  Zero.  If anything, their own "researcher"  Dale Jorgenson said that was not so.   You would have to donate -- yes donate -- all the money you used to pay in fed taxes, to your employer. Only THEN, said Jorgenson, could prices falL!   

Everyone -- get this -- everyone would have to DONATE (because HR25 does not require)  you do let your employer keep all the money you used to pay in taxes.

Only then -- this is from Jorgenson, remember that -- would it be possible for prices to go down!


The goofy "prebate".   Their own fine print says that money would "have to be generated" in some other way.  In other words,   they have no way to pay for it. 

A nearly 1 trillion dollar goofy PON (Piece of nonsense). 

You literally are unable, in their own calculator, to put in any information that matters!  What they do ask, does not matter. They may as well ask you how many dogs your neighbor has, then say -- HERE IS THE RESULTS -- you save 50,000 dollars!

Yes, it's that goofy.

What research Boortz?

Highest sales tax won't matter!

 "A  WASH"    All prices drop, per research.

Uh - no.   The "research"  done by Dale Jorgenson was not about Fairtax, anyway.  He ran the numbers on hypotehticals, which is not research anyway.  But Jorgenson said the OPPOSITE of what Boortz claimed.  Prices do not go down, they go UP with sales taxes,   Remember, Boortz made it seem like Jorgenson said they went DOWN 22%.

 The tax is 23%, to prices go DOWN 22% -- "it's a wash".   Everything costs the same.   Bull fucking shit.  

  Only -- remember this -- only if everyone in USA donates to their employer what they used to pay in income and social security taxes,  THEN maybe, theoretically, can prices go down. IF everyone lets their employer keep all the money they used to pay in taxes, then maybe the employer can lower prices. Hilarious.

Think Houston city council  will see these footnotes in one document, see the definition of wages in another,   see the assumptions in yet another, and send in over 100 million? 





Grover Norquest pushed Fairtax first -- then suddenly stopped.  Same thing with CATO.  They pushed it, suddenly stopped.  We don't know why.

Did they finally read the fine print?  Maybe. 

Who is behind Fairtax now? Who paid Boortz? Who paid Beacon Hill (see below)?

 Someone had to pay these folks -- especially they had to pay Beacon Hill.  They are a public relations company, they do not work for free.

Who paid them?   We don't know!   

Scientology & Fairtax


Fairtax web site shows Steven Hayes is the top in "Leadership".

A former Scientologist, it seems to us he is  more of a grifter -- raising money.   Not that folks don't often try to raise money to enrich themselves, for some dubious cause they know is nonsense. And that's fine.   It's political theater, not necessarily fraud.

Raising money on political hustles is legal, as far as we know. 

But Hayes gets the money from folks who probably believe Fairtax is a very simple personal retail sales tax,  and that he has, or someone has, all this amazing research.  

It's not a personal retail sales tax, it's not even a tax code. It's political theater. 


Former Scientologist.  Full time grifter?

Bruce Bartlett, in National Review, relied on the fine print to point out, Fairtax would actually be over 100%--because the 80-89% would be just federal sales  tax. 

The cities, county, and states have their OWN sales taxes.

So -- if Fairtax somehow passed, and they only taxed retail sales, the tax rate would be wacko high.  No -- Fairtax does not intend to pass their own fraud.  It was always political theater, not a tax code. 


Bartlett also pointed out -- Scientologist hustlers contacted him, to have him push Fairtax.  Bartlett showed, on CBS, that Fairtax was connected with Scientology.  Indeed, it is.

The head of Fairtax,  Steven Hayes, is  former Scientologist, who appears to be something of a grifter, for Fairtax.  He raises money to "promote" Fairtax.  From things he wrote, it seems Steven wants the "big donors" to himself

Are Hayes and others actually trying to pass Fairtax?

No. Not at all, apparently.  


OVER 100%

Bartlett showed that city county and states would also have "sales taxes"  on top of that, putting the real-world rate over 100, to a customer walking in a store to buy a jacket or couch.  

Did Fairtax hustlers KNOW this?

OF COURSE they knew. They knew this the entire time, it's the hustlers who put in the fine print tricks.

I doubt Huckabee knows any of this -- nor does he seem to care.   Huck would be an idiot to push something that, if passed, would make him leave the country in shame.

Did anyone tell Huck about these massive other taxes?  To hear Huck speak, Fairtax is almost magical, and just a very simple tax on retail sales.

Bartlett knew -- President Bush Tax Panel knew.  But Fairtax fine print tricks are so clever, you'd have to be much smarter than most people to notice, and you would have to discard the bullshit by Boortz, the Fairtax books, etc. You'd have to ONLY go by the fine print and math.

Fairtax hustlers tried to get Bartlett to push Fairtax.   Instead he exposed them.


FUNNY STUFF IN THEIR "RESEARCH"   This is their "very very simple"  tax plan.   They were probably laughing their asses off when they wrote this.  In fact, they probably were laughing their asses off a lot. 

For a quicker way to see their fraud -- see their "calculator trick".  Same deception, just on this calculator fraud.Calculator fraud -- see how they did it



You will never see Fairtax do a side by side comparison of before -after Fairtax, listing all consumption.   You are about to find out why.  We show how Fairtax would impact a guy named "Joe".   Fairtax won't show you such things.

Because Joe  had so much consumption (mostly due to medical consumption) his Fairtax would be 57,000 or more, because he "consumed"  251, 000 dollars.  He did not purchase that much, but remember, Fairtax is based literally and explicitly on all "consumption".   

Does not matter if Joe borrowed, or if Joe had insurance, or if Joe even went bankrupt and avoided paying it.   Fairtax tax tables, their "TAX BASE"  is based on all consumption "without exception".  That is how their math is set up, remember. 

Yes a lot of this tax would be on the surgery -- but even without that surgery, Joe's fed tax would be 300% higher than before, under Fairtax. With the surgery, Joe's Fairtax exceeds his entire income. That of course is impossible bullshit -- but that's what Fairtax is. Impossible bullshit. 



Someone put a lot of money into Fairtax -- and they paid Boortz, and Beacon Hill, plus for buses, and "education" web sites.   The "Fairtax calculator" fraud,  etc.  

Who would do that, and why? Suckers?  Did they raise money from suckers for all this?  To get more suckers?  We don't know.

Boortz said someone offered him a jet like this to fly him around and push Fairtax.  We don't know who paid Boortz or owns all this.  Apparently, they also tried to hire Bruce Bartlett, who refused, and instead, exposed Fairtax fraud.



The guy who Boortz said proved all this great stuff about Fairtax,  Dale Jorgenson, did no such thing, and is not for Fairtax.

Kotlikoff was well paid, according to his friend Bruce Bartlett, for pushing Fairtax.  We repeat -- Kotlikoff did no research, in the definition here, about Fairtax.

What he did, was clever, and perhaps technically he did not lie, because he parsed words with "assumptions"  and clever definitions, such as defintion of a person, to fool you.

But in our opinion, it seems clear he was lying his ass off, cleverly, and got paid for it.   He got paid to do this.  And he did it.  But the documents he put out are NOT, NOT, NOT about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

And while he tried to give that impression, he never exactly said it was a simple retail sales tax on personal retail items.  That kind of lying he left to Boortz, Huckabee and others. 

Kotlikoff is apparently in charge of making Fairtax seem like a very sophisticated bit of "research". 

Did Kotlikoff actually lie for Fairtax?   

Maybe not, We would call it lying, as it was deliberately deceptive.   Kotlikoff never said it was only a retail sales tax that was logical, did  he? No. He wrote shit like "we assume"  and the tricky defintions of their tax base. 


Boortz cleverly created his own "critics" --  and wrote a book to refute the critics.   Hilarious.   But smart way to fool suckers.

He of course never showed you any of what we show. 


FINE PRINT on Details of offer-- 

We were not kidding. $50,000 dollars paid to the first person who can show one page of the 22 million dollars of Fairtax research proving this "very very simple" personal retail sales tax  of 23% would replace all other fed taxes in "revenue neutral" fashion.

We have offered this to Boortz, for years.  To any charity he names, or he can keep it, we don't care.

We make the same offer to you, or anyone. We don't care -- you can't collect the 50K, because there is no 22 million dollars of Fairtax research -- and certainly not about a very very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes!

Hiding goofy fraud in your own fine print -- then call that research -- is  not research. Too complicated? 

Plus, since that supposed "research"  has massive other taxes, like the impossible taxes on city county and states, for wage and other expenditures, it can't be research about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxed.

Ask your attorney.

 Here are important details . If you are going  sue to collect the 50,000, you must file suit in Tazwell County  Illinois, and are hereby obligated to pay all my attorney fees,  if  you do not collect the 50K offer.  

And my attorney fees include cost of travel, research, communication with me and with the court and with your attorney or yourself.   You must pay those to me,  or to my attorney, if you do not prevail in court

 You must also pay for all your  attorney fees, travel  any  and other costs related to the suit, regardless of outcome.

See how fine print tricks matter?

I knew that you could!
