Former Fairtax Sucker Exposes the Fraud

under construction. 



They fooled me that "22 million dollars of research".   Now, see why they run from $50,000 offer to show 1 page of that "research".

 Few little "details"  Fairtax hustlers, liars, and fools forgot to mention.   Like the 30 to 40K tax on cancer surgery and chemo, no exceptions.

That's not the cost of the surgery -- that's the cost of the TAX.  And Fairtax has no exceptions whatsoever. Impossibly, the "person using or consuming" the surgery and chemo is personally liable.

Can -- and should, any cancer victim have a 30,000 dollar tax, just because they decided to get surgery and chemo?

As you will see, the "CANCER TAX"  is just a tiny example of 2 trillion dollars of  other taxes they forgot to mention in books, videos and 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% personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes, I give them 50,000 dollars.  Full details on the offer is below. 


Fairtax sounds so good.  Simple retail sales tax, you get a prebate to pay your federal taxes on all "necessities".  And more -- no need to pay Social Security taxes, no need to any other fed tax -- just that "very very simple"  retail sales tax.

Social security -- paid. Medicare -- paid.  No need for you to pay them, though rest assured, you will get Social Security and Medicare.

In fact, Neal Boortz said with a straight face,  research shows the only real problem with Fairtax, is what to do with all the money!

We show you what these lying bastards try to pass off as research - yes they are lying bastards -- and you decide.  Is hiding goofy impossible bullshit in your fine print, a few words here, inserted to fool people, is that research?

Fuck no. But that's what they have.  And they claimed that was 22 million dollars of research about a "very very simple"  personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes.

See -- see why they can't show one page of that research? Because they have no such research. I mean none. 



We never believed Boortz about "the only problem will be where to put all the money,"   but we did believe there was 22 million dollars of research,  and specifically Boortz pointed out Harvard Researcher Dale Jorgenson.  

 Who would lie that blatantly, and give all kinds of specific "facts"   Boortz claimed was proven by the research?   No one would lie like that -- specific, loud, proud claims. 

You could just contact that "researcher"  and ask.  So we DID.

We contacted about 12 of those "researchers"  -- none of whom did any research.   Some had read some Fairtax bullshit, and agreed with the bullshit, but none did the "research".

Only one guy -- from Beacon Hill, who was paid by Fairtax to put out the documents they fraudulently called research -- even knew what the hell Fairtax actually taxed.   The others didn't even know Fairtax had these massive other taxes!

So they list as "researchers"  folks who didn't even know what the hell was in the fine print -- they didn't even READ the fine print in the research they supposedly did!

That's right, we only found ONE person that Fairtax listed as economists who even knew what was in those clever words, in the documents they called "research".



Fucking hell, show us that one, please!

Like the average take home pay, said Boortz, will increase by 50%.  Like US businesses will see an immediate increase in revenue  of 37%, etc etc,  

Boortz made all this kind of misleading nonsense seem like it came from the "research".   No it did not, there is no research.  

There were not claims pulled out of the air -- they were the result of 22 million in research Boortz told us. What research Boortz?

We offered Neal, and have for years, 50K for any charity. Show 1 page of that 22 million in research, that proves all these things!

Now you know why Boortz has run from these facts. He knows he was misleading folks the entire time. 

 "A  WASH"    Mostly, Boortz told us not to worry about the tax -- prices fall that much, or nearly so!!  All prices fall, by the amount of the tax!!   That 100 dollar jacket will still cost 100 dollars, because the price will fall 22%, the tax will be 23%, so it will be "a wash.  All proven BY RESERCH -- by that 22 million in research!

So maybe a 1% increase, yet you get 50% increase in take home pay, you get paid every month that prebate.   Holy cow -- it would seem like a huge fucking scam, but all the "research"!!

Best of all -- it's "voluntary".   You only pay taxes when you buy something new, right?   That's what they tax-- right? Prices drop, you pay goes way up, and it's all researched!

WOW -- let's do it.


One tiny problem.

That retail sales tax they tell you about ?   That's only a tiny part of Fairtax.

Fairtax is NOT -- NOT -- NOT just on purchases of retail items. Oh hell no.  They have massive taxes on cities for wage, pension, capital investment and operational expenditures.

Anything your city, county state consumes -- including wage, pension and operational expenditures -- your city has to pay a tax on.

Anything your county "expends," including wage, pension and operational expenditures, your city has to "remit"  a 23% tax.

Anything your STATE "expends," including wage, pension and operational expenditures, your city has to "remit"  a 23% tax.

Same exact thing -- for your library district, your park district, anything at all.  They "must remit"  a 23% tax to the federal government, on all expenditures.   That means -- and they say it means -- all expenditures without exception, including wage, pension and capital investment expenditures,  

One exception -- they do not tax educational expenditures. 




From their OWN DOCUMENT.   "We assume state and local governments....  will raise their tax rates" to pay for these massive other taxes.

How much will your city, your county, and your state (and library district, and park district" ) raise their tax rates, per Fairtax?

Of course the lying bastards didn't say -- they hid, as much as humanly possible, this much.  They never mentioned it in book, videos and speeches. Not once, not in thousands of speeches, thousands of videos, and hundreds of books.

Not once,     So of course they were not going to say "We assume your city will raise your tax rates, and your county will raise your tax rates, and your state will raise your tax rates, by 1 trillion dollars. "

But per sworn testimony to House Way Means committee, we estimated tax rates would have to go up by 15-20%.

And they DID tell you -- sorta kinda -- if you could

1) find the fine print documents

2) ignore the 99.9% of text that suggested the opposite

3) decode their bullshit

4) understand their tax tables.

Of course, President Bush Tax Panel had no trouble finding the fine print, and decoding their hustle.   But most Fairtax suckers only know the slogans. 


The "retail" tax could only collect 1.4 Trillion dollars or so.  Remember that. 

But they claim they will collect 3.5 trillion.  


Q.  Where are they going to get the other 2.1 Trillion?   

A. From the other taxes -- like cancer taxes, like taxes on city county and states, and the "assumption" all city county and states will raise their tax rates. 



Fairtax had no choice.

Fairtax wanted their plan in writing -- HR25, and the "supporting research"  they claimed proved all the wonderful things. 

To make the math add up, Fairtax has a problem.   It would take an 89% tax, not 23%, to get enough revenue, if they only taxed retail sales,

 Retail sales are only about 4 trillion dollars. To get 3.5 trillion as a retail sales tax, they would have to tax retail sales about 90%.

That's just goofy as hell.  They had to tax (on paper) about 12 trillion dollars of "consumption".   

The only way to get that much "consumption"  into the tax base, they had to include all city county and state expenditures (wages, pensions, capital investments, etc).

And much more.  

It was not enough just to tax all city county and state expenditures (wages, pensions, operational expenditures, capital expenditures, etc).  They needed to tax even more!

So "in the tax base"  are all federal expenditures. All military expenditures, all highway and justice system expenditures.  All of that is "in the tax base" per their own clever documents in what they call "research".  

So no, they have no research whatsoever, about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other taxes.   In fact,  those documents they call research are quite the opposite of research.  Since when is "research"  a bunch of nonsense put together to fool suckers?   Hiding goofy fine print tricks, and calling it research, is a fraud.  And it sure as hell is not research.

So these goofy lying bastards had to. They had to -- on paper,  tax even federal expenditures, other than education expenditures. 

Just how the fuck are 4 billion dollars spent for the Justice Department and Federal corrections, a "personal retail sales tax"?

It's not, of course.   But that's in their "tax base".   And tax base is, by definition, what they tax. 

Goofy as it is -- Fairtax has the government paying itself (yes they do) most of the taxes.

But they had to, otherwise, they would need to show a tax rate of 89%

See -- Fairtax fine print (we show you) cleverly defines any government as a special kind of person.


How the fuck is that tax on NYC  a personal retail sales tax?

Because of how Fairtax defined "person" -- see below.  In fact, Fairtax own # 2 man, James Bennett, boasted this definition of a person was the "legal basis" for taxing all city county and states on their wage, pension, and operational expenditures.

Chicago IL would owe over 150 million dollars.   Why?  Because as we show you, in Fairtax documents, are massive taxes on all city county and states, not just for retail purchases.



NO    ONE    TOLD    ANY     STATE



10 YEARS AGO....


Pay out 2 billion to operate a prison and court system in the state of Texas?  Guess what? Texas would owe almost 500 million as a tax..

Goofy as hell, right?  Yes, it's goofy.   


Fairtax hustlers never bothered -- of course -- to give an address to send these billions of dollars to.  They didn't ever make it clear, these "other taxes " are the biggest part of fairtax.

James Bennett, official Fairtax spokesmen, official # 2 man in Fairtax told me there "is no need" to tell city county and states. "It's clear enough already" because of the FINE PRINT.

Bennett -- hard to tell if he is stupid or just a sucker -- said "City and States deal with fine print all the time."   And so, this will be no problem. Yes, they will send in the money, he implied.

No -- they won't. 


To make their math add up.

But Fairtax needed to make their "tax base"  so large, a 23% tax would work. So that's what they did.   That's the "government expenditures"   they  cleverly put in their "tax base documents".


Know what a "tax base" is?   

Tax base is, by definition, what they tax.

You gotta see their "tax base" documents. 


From their own document -- not ours. Clever, deceptive, but they wrote it down.    

Oh of course they don't say "we tax this".    they say this is our Tax Base.    President Bush Tax Panel could eat shit like this up for breakfast, spit it out for lunch. 

But Fairtax suckers could not even FIND these documents.  They go by the slogans -- which are bullshit and fraudulent.

 Fairtax was exposed as a goofy fraud -- politely, in academic terms -- over 10 years ago, by President Bush Tax Advisory Panel. 

It was also exposed by National Review, Bruce Bartlett, for the same reasons -- the massive other impossible goofy taxes, hidden in their "research" documents".  

You can't know how goofy Fairtax is, or even guess how goofy it is, unless you know about their supposed "research."

And that "research" is their claim to fame -- 80 "world class economist"  "designed" it.  

Uh -- not so much, actually.  I keep looking for these "researchers"  who "designed" this "very very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

There is no such research, so there are no such "researchers".

Fairtax is a goofy ass fraud, and it sure the hell is NOT a "very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes".


Not that Fairtax research is faulty, or incomplete. I mean they have none. Not a post it note, not an office somewhere, not a researcher. Not an email account, not a desk.

What they have is a public relations company -- Beacon Hill --who put out dozens of documents, none of which are research in any sense.   They may SOUND like research, but read them closely -- we show you.

Hiding goofy  taxes -- 2 trillion in OTHER taxes -- in your goofy footnotes, assumptions, and tax base tables -- is quite the opposite of research. 

In fact, there is a reason I offer 50,000 dollars (really) for one page of that 22 million in research about this 23% personal retail sales tax, that replaces all other fed taxes, including Social Security and Medicare, in a " revenue neutral" fashion, as Fairtax lying bastards - and their suckers -- like to say.



You don't need me or the Tax Panel to expose the fraud -- just go get all the official documents by Fairtax lying bastards, and read it. Every word.

In fact, those that push Fairtax, who act like they know what's in Fairtax, an advocate it, like Huckabee, Gary Johnson, FOX news Hannity, and others, should have seen it. 

But you have to get ALL the documents. It does not matter what the slogans are -- what the hell are the details, in the fine print.

You would need -- because these bastards were sneaky -- every footnote. Every "assumption".  Every "tax base" document, and pay very close attention indeed, to every definition (such as definition of a person). 

If you can't find all their documents, assumptions, tax base documents, I can show you them, but it's better if you find it, and read it closely, yourself.    The point is, these bastards wrote the fine print in a very clever, deceptive, and fundamentally fraudulent way.  We show it to you.


But -- is Fairtax a retail sales tax?   Very simple?  You decide what taxes you pay, from what you BUY?

Oh fuck no.  Only a small part of Fairtax is that retail sales tax. You have to pay those taxes, plus massive other taxes, cleverly sprinkled in their fine print, a few words here, a few words there. 

Most of Fairtax is that huge pile of "other taxes"  on top of, paid in addition to, the retail sales tax. Over 2 trillion dollars, out of 3.5 trillion, has nothing to do with retail sales.

But in 15 years, not once, not in any book, not in any video, not in any speech or email, have they even mentioned the biggest taxes in Fairtax are the goofy impossible "other taxes". 

Gale found the "other taxes"  just by reading the fine print, closely.


Neal Boortz, author of "Fairtax Book"   met with President Bush, and told him all the great slogans in Fairtax, and told him there was "22 million dollars of research"  behind it.

Bush had his "Tax Advisory Panel"  look at it -- which means, look at the fine print and "research", 

William Gale, PhD Stanford, head of President Bush Tax Advisory Panel,  can read fine print tricks for breakfast and spit them out for lunch.  
          But most Fairtax suckers can not even find the documents, much less read them carefully, and ignore the overall narrative of Fairtax as a simple retail sales tax.  
But the Tax Panel did not have a hard time spotting the fraud -- the massive goofy other taxes, in the clever double talk and math.  Here is just one example.

All wages, all pensions, all benefits, PAID OUT by any city, any county, any state, any park district, any library district (but not educational expenditures) are taxed 23%.  

So Chicago Illinois would owe over 100 million dollars -- in advance (yes advance) on their "expenditure" of "certain wages". 

It's cleverly in that fine print above, but more importantly,  it's in their math. All city county and state wages, even the federal government wage expenditures, are TAXED.

We show you.

Yet these lying bastards claim it's "just a very very simple personal retail sales tax -- paid at "point of purchase".


By calling it "certain wages" they give absolutely no clue this would be not only impossible, but is the biggest source of revenue in Fairtax -- the "expenditures" by all city county and states, and the federal government itself.

Not just a tax on retail purchases- - oh hell no. But ANY expenditure -- wage, pensions, benefits, operational expenditures, capital expenditures, that's all TAXED!

Build a new court house for 40 million? Your county would owe 10 million as a tax. 

Tax base = what they tax. That's what a tax base is, a list of things they tax.  '

And -- get this -- they "assume" city county and states, will raise their tax rates to pay it.  That's their clever "assumption"

They put those clever taxes "in the tax base" to skewer the math. Then "assume"  all city counties and states will raise their tax rates, to pay it.

Do you grasp what lying bastards they are?

They didn't tell you in books, videos and speeches.  Unless you read their fine print very closely, you wouldn't have a clue.

So they got hustlers like Boortz -- they paid him, yes they did -- to put this shit out, to speak for Fairtax. He got PAID.


Why did they need all these other taxes in fine print?

  Why bother inserting these clever things in their fine print?

They HAD to.  If they only taxed retail sales, the tax rate would be more like 89%
  Fairtax knew people were stupid, but they also knew even stupid people would not want an 89% sales tax.  So they lied -- by fine print tricks-- about what they tax.  They didn't tell you that in books, videos or speeches.  Even in the fine print, they told you in a clever, fraudulent way.

Bottom line -- according to Tax Panel Report -- without the massive impossible (yes  impossible) hidden taxes,  Fairtax would be 89% --not 23%


How the hell is it a "retail sale"  when a cancer victim -- on Medicare- - gets cancer surgery?   Do you think Medicare is going to pay a tax to the fed gov?

How the hell are taxes on all city county and states, for the wage, pension, operational expenditures, capital investments, etc, a retail sale?

It's not, of course, But they were not worried about it. This was a fraud to raise money, not a tax code.

The Tax Panel, in public, used polite academic terms.  But in private, William Gale said "They lie a lot'"   Indeed they lied a lot, and we show you.

The panel and others exposed Fairtax fraud over a decade ago -- showing the same things we do -- the "tax base trick"  and how the clever fine print is nothing like Boortz told suckers in Fairtax book, or any Fairtax liar ever told anyone. .  But the Tax Panel said it, POLITELY .

 Fuck that. Liars do not deserve polite.  So we are not polite.  We are not so polite. 

In private, the head of Bush Tax panel said Fairtax folks  "lied a lot".  He is right -they claimed to be a "very simple"  personal retail sales tax.   

Only a small part of Fairtax is a retail sales tax 

You  must also pay massive other taxes, "NIPA"  taxes.   It's in their own fine print. We show it to you.

The sales tax is only a small part of what you pay.

Like the massive taxes shown in their "TAX BASE".

This is a capital investment expenditure.

These expenditures are taxed -- Fairtax taxes them -- 23%.  In advance.  The state of California would owe the federal government 1.3 billion in taxes on this -- in advance.

That's how their math adds up, these goofy impossible other taxes in the fine print. 

Also in the Fairtax tax base -- all Medicare and Medicaid expenditures, only the person "using or consuming" any goods or services are personally liable. No exceptions. 


Do you seriously think this cancer victim can, or should, pay 30,000 in fed taxes, just cause she got sick?   

No.  Why on earth should a woman with cancer pay  5 10 or 20 times as much fed tax, as her neighbor did, with exactly the same finances, other than her cancer?

Fairtax hustlers are well aware of this.   Fairtax hustlers aren't stupid, they are lying bastards.   They are well aware all medical "consumption" is in the "tax base"  even all Medicare and Medicaid "consumption". 

It's in their tax base documents ( we show you) of course does not make that clear.   Instead  they just lump "personal consumption expenditures" and "governmental consumption expenditures"  in a line in their tax base documents.  

 But all medical expenditures, all Medicare and Medicaid expenditures, are included, just not named.  

See for yourself, below. 

And yes -- there are NO EXCEPTIONS. 

 They could not allow any exceptions, or their math would show 89% tax rate.  Only by pretending all these goofy impossible taxes will be paid, can they show 23% 

By the way, doesn't matter if the cancer victims pays, her insurance pays, or even if no one pays.   Remember, it's NOT sales Fairtax counts for anything.  It's consumption in the tax base -- NOT sales. Not purchases. Whoever uses or consumes any service or good is liable -- to exceptions. NO EXCEPTIONS.

They tax all consumption, including consumption of cancer surgery and chemo.  They did say in their own legislation -- they tax all consumption.  Without exception.

They "adopt" a  pre-pay approach to taxing government investment.  In a footnote, they tell you that strange "little" detail.   Massive advance taxes, on all city county and states.

Remember, that's in their OWN document.   Documents they call "research".


Why not just except health care from Fairtax?  Because if they did, the tax rate would need to be 35 or 40%, not 23%

Why not just exempt city expenditures, such as wage, pension and capital investment expenditures (which Fairtax does tax 23%)/

Because if they did, the tax rate would need to be 55 or 65%, not 23%.

Why not just exempt the poor (no, they exempt no one, they give a prebate, see below)?   Because if they did, the tax rate would be 75 or 80%, not 23%

Remember too, there are no exceptions, per their own math, and their own "research".   That's how their math adds up.

Literally, to make their fraudulent math add up, in their own paperwork, they had no choice.  They had to tax massive other things, not just retail sales, so they did.  

Wages are "in the tax base"  meaning they tax those.

What does the word "wages" mean?

SO, by their own math, and their own definitions, all wages, disability, pensions, work comp, all insurance, paid out by every city county state, and even the federal government (!) is taxed 23%

Remember, they did that so their math will add up.


How do we know all cities have to pay 23% taxes on all expenditures (other than education)?    Because Fairtax clever documents and math are based on that.  Tax base -- they tax whatever is in the tax base 23%

But they SORTA told you, a few words here, a few there. Like this...





They never say.

How are even small  cities supposed to pay that 5 million tax? 

Where do they send it?

Why not tell them in advance about it?

If Fairtax weren't a fraud by hustlers -- they would say clearly what they tax, and no city county or state would be ignorant of it.



This is in their OWN document.  Remember that, their OWN document, which they call "research". 


They did tell you, if telling you means lying their ass off in books, videos, and speeches, and giving the opposite impression even in their own documents, but sneaking a few fraudulent words, assumptions and defintions in, to fool you.

Total  lie.  


WHO IS GETTING -- OR TRYING TO GET  - Wealthy through Fairtax hustle?

Apparently this guy -- head of Fairtax bullshit.   If you are willing to donate money to Fairtax, this is the man that wants your "donation"


Steve Bennett -- #2 man in Fairtax, official spokesmen, said this word "person" in a defintion, is the "legal basis" for the massive taxes on all city, all county, and all states.

I had looked, and looked, and looked for any mention in HR25 of anything about taxes on city county and states.   Kept looking. Kept looking some more.

Surely if they had substantial, or massive, taxes on city county and states (as they do) this would be clearly listed in it's own section.

No.  They never say it clearly,  quite the opposite.   They put a word -- the word person -- in a definition.   One word. One. Word.   Did we mention, one word?

Remember this is the #2 guy in Fairtax. 

Bennett is the guy in charge of -- remember that -- in charge of explaining this to city and state officials.  Yet he said he "had no plans"  to explain it further than this definition, this one word in a long rambling goofy definition.

City and states, he told me with a straight chubby face (by email, "deal every day with fine print".   And Bennett added, "it's clear enough already".

Clear enough? You bastards give the opposite impression.

The definition of a person -- in HR25 -- includes the word "government"  in a long rambling sentence.     Any government is a person -- and a very special kind of person.

Person......ANY ......government.

But by that logic, all corporations would be likewise taxed, all trusts, all organizations.   And of course, they knew that.  But they had to put government is a person SOMEWHERE.   So that's the place they put it -- far far down the list of goofy definitions, such as definition of inventory, definition of professional courier services, etc. 

The government is a "special" person who has to pay taxes on wage, pension, capital expenditures,  operational expenditures, essentially anything any city county our state "pays out" -- they have to "remit" 23% tax (in advance) to the fed government.

In fact, these massive other taxes are the biggest part of Fairtax revenue.  The retail sales tax (the only sane part of the fraud) is a small part. 



From HR 25 - the actual bill. 

 So they did tell you, right?   Very cleverly, they tell you they tax all consumption once and only once "without exception".

But they never tell you they tax all cities on all pension wage, capital investment, and operational expenditures, without exception.  That is the "consumption" they tax "without exception" 


HR25 makes it seem like it's a very simple retail sales tax, too, just like the books, videos and speeches.

So if you don't know they have all kinds of "other" taxes, in the fine print, how the hell would you know?





Fairtax hustlers claim - idiotically -- that they don't need to collect any FICA taxes. None. No medicare taxes, no Social Security taxes -- not a damn penny.

But almost 1/3 of all government revenue, ARE THOSE TAXES.  If you just stop collecting a dime of those, you are instantly 800 billion or more short.

Social Security checks are paid from this money coming in.   Social Security provides -- contrary to what FOX SPEWS tells you -- more money coming in to Treasury, than they pay out.  The payroll taxes also pays for Medicare.

How the FUCK are they going to pay all those bills, all the social security checks, all the medicare expenditures -- without one damn dime coming in?

But even more goofy -- they tax all that. They defund Social Security, defund Medicare and Medicaid --but tax all that anyway.

That's right,  they defund these massive programs, but their revenue projections are based on collecting taxes on every dime of that "consumption".

Are you getting the point?  These lying bastards are lying bastards. 




Jim Bennett, #2 man at Fairtax, finally showed me the "legal basis" as  he called it, for the trillion dollars or more taxes, on all city, county and states.  


No, not just a tax on their retail purchases, but the "legal basis" for the tax on wages, on pensions, and operational expenditures.  

But where the fuck is it in their official legislation. Fairtax claims they are simple, transparent, fair.

So where in the books, videos or speeches, do they mention these massive taxes?   They don't.

But where in the legislation are these taxes?  Where is the "LEGAL BASIS"  in their own documents?

  Yes, the LEGAL BASIS IS THERE, if you consider one word, deep, deep down a bunch of bullshit definitions, a legal basis.

See those words, I highlighted, in yellow?   ANY GOVERNMENT?

 Those words, those exact words, in that exact section for HR 25, according to their own guy (number 2 guy in the entire organization) is the legal basis for these massive other taxes, in adavance, and otherwise, on all cities, all states, all counties. 

In a list of definitions - after the definition of "Designated commercial private courier service"  and after the definition of "Inventory", is a definition of a PERSON.

These sneaky lying fucks -- watch this.

Way down that list -- if anyone read these endless definitions -- is the definition of a person.   Read it closely.  "ANY NATURAL PERSON AND............ blah blah blah ....government"

Any government is a "person".  And a very special kind of person, a "person" different from "natural person, such as human beings.  

SPECIAL KIND OF PERSON -- cities, counties and states would pay retail sales tax--yes.   But they are a special kind of person who has to pay drastically more tha "natural persons".   Very clever.

Remember, anything in the tax base is taxed 23%.   Including a 23% tax on all city, county and states, on their operational, wage, capital investments.

Try to grasp how goofy that is. 


There is no fucking way for city county and states to know any of this, unless they call goof ball fairtax hustlers, and ask them.

Do you think Texas state legislature, without being told, without knowing a thing about it, without Fairtax officials even mentioning it, except in some goofy ass double talk, are going to send in 14 billion dollars?

FUCK NO  they are not going to send in 14 billion dollars.  Nor is California going to send in 20 Billion, or NYC send in 1 billion.

Nor is Keokuk Iowa going to send in 8 million, or Eugene Oregon going to send in 46 million.

Do Fairtax hustlers think those cities states and counties are going to send in all this money, without knowing about it?

FUCK  NO.   They know it's goofy ass bullshit, that is why they hid it, in double speak.

 No one told any city county or state, in any rational way.
But the fine print HAD to include things to make their math work. Remember that.  These lying bastards are not crazy or stupid, they are lying bastards.   And they used word games to fool you.

Jim Bennett told me the huge tax on city county and states is "CLEAR ENOUGH ALREADY"  and said he had "no plans" to contact any city county or state and fill them in, about it.

Clear enough, I asked Jim?    Yes, clear enough. Bennett told me city county and states deal with "fine print" all the time, and would have no trouble spotting the taxes they would owe.

Is Jim a lunatic?  No,  he is more likely a "true believer"   fooled by his Scientology #1 guy. Hard telling what personal relationship they have.  My guess is, Jim just loves the attention he gets from Fairtax hustlers, and is probably as surprised as anyone he is listed as #2 person in the organization. But who knows -- these folks are kinda creepy, and will use any suckers for any reason.

In other words, city county and states are supposed to read way way down these definitions, decode the bullshit, and send in about 1 trillion dollars

Texas is supposed to send it 14 billion --whatever 23% of their total (non-educational) expenditures.  So if Texas "expends"100 billion, Texas legislature are supposed to "remit" 23% of that, or 23 billion to the fed government.

Yes, its THAT FUCKING crazy.   That's how they get their fraudulent goofy mat to add up, remember?

The math is literally that full of bullshit. Not kinda, not sorta, not in a way.  They put all government "expenditures" in the tax base, remember.  And much more.

They have the government paying itself over 1 trillion dollars.  And they count that as spendable money. It's goofy, it's goofy bullshit.

But it looks good.  They paid lying bastards -- at Beacon Hill -- to make it look so smart. But you have to read their words -- all of them, very carefully.

They did tell you about the goofy shit,  a very sneaky ass way.  



GOP IS NOW PUSHING THE 'FLAT TAX"  ---  where you can fill out your taxes on a post card.

Nothing wrong with that!   But these lying bastards don't even have fine print. We are about to show you the fine print in Fairtax fraud, but the Flat tax fuckers learned: don't have fine print, just have slogans.

The "trick" of GOP scum flat tax, the postcard crap -- is that they LOWER the tax on the very wealthy.  Slogans always sound fucking great.  

 Exactly like Fairtax bastards, Flat tax bastards  are not about to make it clear what they consider taxable.

All income is taxed at a given rate, they will tell you? Oh hell no, fuck no.   They will have no tax whatsoever on billions of $ of income.  As Mitt Romney himself stated in 2012, if they went to the flat tax, he would pay virtually no tax at all.  How would he pay no tax at all, when the "Flat rate"  would seem to mean, he would pay 15 or 17%East - - the fucking fine print, in that case, how they define income.



Read their (Fairtax) legislation 5 times, 10 times, read it all day, read it for a damn week, and it's almost impossible to see these massive taxes on city county and states,  

In fact,  some people claim they read all of HR25, and stupidly insist they read "all " of the Fairtax research documents.   But then, the stupid bastards can not even come close to telling you what Fairtax taxes.

Again, and again, and again, they will tell you the SLOGANS.  Yes, the slogans are great, now, read the fine print closely.

People are so fucking stupid.   Even some "educated economist"  like David Kendall, PhD at Wise Universtity, and spokesmen for Fairtax,  had no clue, absolutely none, that Fairtax has over 1 trillion dollars of  projected tax revenue, coming from the government, over 500 billion coming from the federal government itself. Just tax the government, and pretend they will pay, and you can spend that money.   Of course it's absurd, but it's in the fine print.

Have 100 lawyers read HR25, by itself, 100 times, you could not find the fraud. You simply must see their "supporting documents"  -- fancy double talk for the fraud itself, which is in their own "research" documents.

Their "research" cost 22 million dollars (hilarious, they have no research) .  But those papers, their OWN papers, have a few words here and there, that go together with HR25.   So you need to go all over the damn  place, and find their shit.

 But according to Jim Bennett, official # 2 man in Fairtax,  and an attorney, the taxes on city county and states are "clear enough already".    The LEGAL BASIS for these massive taxes are in HR25, he claimed, and clear to anyone who deals with taxes, such as city and state officials.  

No need to tell them anything further! Jim actually told me that, no need to explain the taxes further, it's in HR25 in that definition!

So California would have to raise its taxes 20 billion, LA County, raise its taxes by 700 million, LA city itself, another raise in taxes, 800 million.   No, they never told you the amounts -- too obvious -- but in the "research" -- what the had the balls to call research -- are these stunningly goofy and high impossible taxes.

Impossible because they know California general assembly is not going to just write a check for 20 billion. It's preposterous, and you can't force them, or anyone, to do so.

Los Angeles County is not going to write a huge check either. Nor will Keokuk Iowa, Springfield Illinois, or Dade County Florida.

Fairtax has never told anyone -- not in any candid way -- about these taxes.  Cities don't know. Hell, their own "sponsors"  and spokesmen for Fairtax often claim no such taxes are in Fairtax, never mind the math in their tax tables, and their tax base documents, showing otherwise.

Nor will cancer victims on Medicare send in 40K or whatever the amount would be,  because they would not have that much money in the first place.  

But, those are the kinds of taxes President Bush found -- and we found -- and you can find -- if you just read the fine print, all of it, and their math, very carefully.

And yes, Boortz knew that -- was well aware of that -- when he cleverly and deceptively made his readers assume, falsely, that city county and states would just pay retail sales tax, like when they bought a printer, or a computer monitor. Not a big deal!

But paying taxes on wage and pension and operational  expenditures (see their fine print and math) would be a drastic tax, goofy as hell, and no city county or state could be forced to pay it.

Do you think Neal Boortz is going to every city in the USA and force them to pay 20, 40, 50 million dollars or more, because these goofy lying bastards put some nonsense double talk, in a footnote, and then cleverly listed that consumption in their "tax base".

Boortz and others -- NEVER BELIEVED A FUCKING WORD THEY SAID.  It was always a lie.  Always. 

Why throw all  city county and state police wage, pension, and benefit expenditures into the "tax base".

They had to. They had no choice but to add all that into the tax base, to make the math add up on paper. 

Yet, they told you it was  a very simple retail sales tax in the narrative, books, videos, speeches, on and on, for 15 years.   They told on FOX SPEWS, they told you online, they told you in books, they told you in thousands of social media post, they had speakers and "training" and articles in hundreds of newspapers.

Every time, every book, every training, every speech, every  video, they sold it as a very simple personal retail sales tax, 23%, all researched, 22 million of research if they mentioned research.

From Fairtax web site -- this used to be their opening image......


They purposely made you believe, in official documents, in books, in videos, in thousands of speeches, and articles, on TV interviews, in slogans, in graphics, in examples that they were a very very simple personal retail sales tax.   

All researched. Very simple.  You chose your taxes because you chose what you buy at the store or restaurant.   Buy used things -- no taxes.   Grow your own food -- no tax.  

Stop social security taxes, stop medicare taxes, stop all fed taxes -- just that retail sale tax -- and you pay the same price for goods and services!

Your coat will still cost 100 dollars, because the tax won't matter!   All prices will drop 22% --- a scientific fact, proven by extensive research.   So your 23% tax won't even matter.  

You get a prebate anyway -- everyone legal in the US, will get a
"prebate" check, to pay your taxes on "necessities".  

Your new house, yes, that is taxed too,  they wanted to be "candid".  But that will drop in price too - by the same, or nearly the same, as the tax.   

And it's all proven by research from the top economist in the world.  Designed by economist, at Harvard, at Heritage, at CATO.   

Only liars, and tax accountants, and lobbyist will be against it.   Watch those guys, Neal Boortz told us, they will come out against t his with every lie, every distortion.



Slogans. Every slogan by Fairtax sounded great, and every slogan was a lie.  It is not a retail sales tax.  It is not simple. It is not even rational.

There is no research, much less 22 million dollars of research. In fact, I will give 50K -- really -- to anyone who can show 1 page of Fairtax research about a simple personal retail sales tax of 23% to replace all other fed taxes.  

How hard can it be -- they have 22 million in research, and can't show 1 page of it?   See details of offer,--and see what these lying bastards, tried to pass off as research, below.

CAN THIS MEDICARE PATIENT PAY 32K in fed taxes on her consumption of surgery and chemo?   Fuck no.

But Fairtax lying bastards -- we show you -- have fine print and math tricks that have all medicare patients paying impossible massive taxes, without exception. 

And to show you how utterly goofy Fairtax is -- they also get rid of all Medicare and Medicare revenue -- a full 1/3 of fed government overall revenue.  So they unfund things, then tax the patients.  Yes, it's that silly.  And yes, they know it. 

 Actually, you would be personally liable for a 46, 000 fed tax, if you "consumed" (not purchased)  200,000 dollars in cancer surgery and chemo.

And that 10 dollar "maybe"  tax Boortz tried to act as if he was so "candid" for telling you about?   Try a 30 40 or 50 dollar tax on an office visit, and blood test.   

No matter what the objection --40,000 tax on a new home, don't worry, according to Boortz,  prices drop 40K anyway.   SO you will pay the same?  


Boortz had a clever quip for suckers -- " just buy used" he said. Just  grow your own food.  Fine.

Ever hear of used rent?  How about used car insurance?  How about used nursing home care -- a 35,000 fed tax on about 14 months of nursing home care.

Oh, Boortz "forgot" to mention that, and gave you this shit lie about "maybe" a ten dollar tax on an office  visit. And he gave you that lie, because he didn't dare tell you of the 46K fed tax on fighting cancer, for many people. 

"It will be a wash"   Boortz wrote, everything will cost so much less, the tax, whatever it is, won't matter.  A "wash".  And he had 22 million dollars of research to prove it.

But they DID tell you, that they assume all city county and states will have to raise their tax rates.  No, they didnt say by how much, but sworn estimates -- sworn in written testimony to Ways Means Committee -- estimated by 30-40% across the board increases in all city, all county, and all state tax rates.

But they did tell you, right?  In that one sentence, in that one footnote, in that one document.   



Contacting the researchers

I did exactly that,  by email.   I was not a skeptic then.  I was just trying to sort a  few things out, like why did I find in the fine print, mention of taxes on city county and states.  

I asked Fairtax spokesmen about where in HR25 they had this massive tax on city county and states.   The math,  if looked at closely, does have massive taxes on city county and states.

Where is that, exactly, please show it to me,   Where does that say any such thing in HR25?

Oh yes, Fairtax spokesmen and "researcher"   Steve Bennett said, it's there.  They do tax all wages, pensions, operational expenditures, etc, etc, paid out by any city, any state, any county.  Even the federal government has to pay.



Did you know Fairtax research "assumes"  all city county and state taxes will have to increase -- they tell you, cleverly, in a footnote. Yes, a footnote.  Did we mention footnote?

Even there, in the footnote, they do not explain this would mean massive tax increases at state and local level, but they did say a few words, in a document you would never see, if not for me, mostly likely.

If all cancer victims, including Medicare patients, and the poor, do not pay these taxes, as Neal Boortz cleverly explained it "then it's not Fairtax, it's something else."

You have to spot the clever word games these liars play.

Think all cancer victims should pay huge fed taxes, just because they got sick?

Think they will pay it?

Why should you pay 40,000 dollars more in fed taxes, cause you have cancer, but your neighbor, who does not, pays 5,000?

And of course, Fairtax hustlers know this.  They had to do it this way, for their math to work.

Likewise, if all city, all county, and all state governments do not pay 23% tax on all expenditures, on all wage expenditures, all pension expenditures, all capital expenditures, then it's not Fairtax, it's "something else".

Fairtax math requires a tax base that includes all Medicare expenditures, all city county and state expenditures, all capital expenditures.  And indeed, their fine print tricks -- we show you -- does exactly that, in the sections about "TAX BASE"


 Such fine print tricks, necessary to use, for their fraudulent math to "add up:" 

Voluntary my ass. 

Total  lie.  Fairtax has massive other taxes -- impossible goofy other taxes- - that are far, far larger than the retail sales tax,  And this bastard knew it, the entire time.  He was not mistaken, he was lying, as you can tell by his clever word games, which always gave the exact opposite impression, of what Fairtax actually taxed, and he, more than anyone, pushed the "research"  meme, which was never true. 

 Fairtax put out a blatantly fraudulent "calculator"   -- if you knew the hustle, that is, they don't tax just retail sales.  See more below about this "calculator" fraud.


Like "Footnote 19" in a fairtax research document, that says they "adopt a prepayment approach"  to taxing government investment.  Turns out, their "investment" tax includes a tax on all government operational expenditures, and wage expenditures, and pension expenditures.

That's as close as they come to telling you about these massive other taxes, this slick "prepay approach" nonsense.  

Gee --wonder why he didnt tell you then, the tax on all wage, pension, and operational expenditures, even capital expenditures?



One tiny problem -- Fairtax has massive impossible other taxes, cleverly inserted in the fine print, that are impossible as hell.

They would need to tax retail sales 89% or so, if they only taxed personal retail sales.

In other words, if they did not, in their math, have massive taxes on all city county and state wage, pension, operational and capital expenditures, their 23% tax would have to be more like 50 or 55%.

Every impossible tax in Fairtax fine print is there for one reason, to make it seem like 23% tax would be enough.   They made damn sure they were dishonest as hell -- misleading as hell -- about what they tax.    And they did that, in documents about "tax base".

That's right, massive IMPOSSIBLE other taxes. Where do they have these taxes?  Are they not just a simple tax on retail sales, like they say?


And if that were not goofy enough, these lying bastards have a doozy of any entitlement, GOING OUT.  720 billion goes OUT, and get this -- they do not count this as an expense.  It's magically free.  All these checks they send out, don't worry, it's not an expense!

Do they really expect to send out 720 billion or more a year in prebates?

No. But it sounded good.  


One tiny example of Fairtax bul

This is the guy , Kotlikoff, that was "well paid"  according to Bruce Bartlett, to write Fairtax bullshit.   Technically, you could was Kotlikoff didnt lie,  because of his clever absurd assumptions and definition tricks.  Lying is not research.  Lying is lying.   

Remember, they pass off their lies as "research".!

Think Saint Louis will send in 160 million dollars because these bastards put impossible "assumptions" in the fine print?

Here is what Fairtaz tells you about their "Research".

There is no fucking research.  remember that.  Not about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.  

The most researched economic plan in history -- that's what Boortz said.

Kotlikoff  has no research, either, and our 50,000 dollar offer, is for showing 1 page of their 22 million dollars of research, into this  " very very simple personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes, in a revenue neutral fashion."   





Flat tax is as flat as Dog the Bounty Hunter's  wife.

Flat as Pikes Peak.

Flat as the Alps.  

But stupid people are always fooled by slogans, and these hustlers actually construct their fraud around the fact, people are stupid, and almost never look past the slogans. 

As Mitt Romney said in one of the 2012 Presidential debates, the flat tax would have him paying virtually no taxes at all. He paid rather little anyway, but Flat tax would put him at very near to no fed taxation, at all.

But the name is flat. That's what they do, time after time. Clever and misleading names, but suckers eat it up.


Flat tax won't even release any fine print -- only slogans.  Fairtax does have fine print, but you have to read all 68 documents, and read them very very carefully.

Flat tax would not even do that much, because flat tax is the opposite of flat.

 If you are a Fairtax sucker, it's not really your fault, except you were too stupid to read the fine print very closely.   

You only know what you are told.  Me, too.  So if I had not read the fine print, I would still be dumb as a rock about Fairtax.

HR 25 -- the legislation. Without exception. Sounds like normal legalese, right?

Uh, not so much.  Those two words are very important, without exception, because that is how their math adds up.  All things in their tax base, are taxed without exception.

All wage, pension and capital investments "expended" by all city county and states, and even capital expenditures, spending, wages, and pensions expended by the federal government, are in the tax base.


Read it again, how they define their tax base.   They don't tell you this in books, videos or speeches.

They have never even mentioned "NIPA"  or explained this in any book, video or speech.  But NIPA is a BFD in Fairtax.

Nothing else comes close. 

If you read their online documents, very closely, you would have seen it.  Maybe. 

But they told you.  They told you in their document about their TAX  BASE.


You may think you know what they tax.  No, you fucking don't have a clue,  if you think it's anything like their books, videos, or speeches.




NIPA actually has nothing  to do with taxes.  It's a table in Bureau of Economic Activity. 

Anything in NIPA, according to their own fine print, is in the tax base.

They tax base is what they tax.

They told you, right?  In that one page. A page you would never likely see.  In a paragraph, very cleverly written, to obfuscate -- lie about -- what they tax. 

Fairtax hustlers "FORGET"  to mention the massive -- impossibly massive, absurdly unconstitutional -- taxes they impose on every city, every county, and every state.

Chart is from sworn testimony to Ways Means Committee
by a former Fairtax supporter.




Mesquite Arizona would owe over 200,000 dollars in fed taxes, just on their "expenditure" for a partial group of new fireman, for their pay and benefits.

Fairtax math is based on it.

They never told you

They have it, deceptively, in the fine print, re NIPA

But - did you know Social Security receipts pay the Social Security benefits?  And Social Security receipts actually bring in MORE than it pays out.  Much of government total revenue, comes from Social Security and Medicare taxes.  Few people seem to grasp that, but it's true. 

WOW-- no more Social Security taxes!!!

You will collect Social Security, and Medicare Medicaid if you need it, as if you always paid into it. But you will no longer have to pay!

You could possibly pay almost no federal taxes -- and no social security taxes at all. To pay almost no taxes, just buy a used car, used home, barter for your food or grow it yourself. 

And get a prebate check every month anyway.

And get Social Security and Medicare benefits anyway.

Wow, what deal!!




Of course the slogans sound great.  No "tax plan" ever sounded better!.

We were fooled by that 22 MILLION IN RESEARCH.

Who would lie about that?   We could just read the research!  

So, we did. And others read the fine print, too.

 We show you what they call "research" - hint, hiding goofy impossible frauds in your own papers, is not research.



This was all exposed, politely, over a decade ago, by President Bush Tax Panel.   They showed, in academic terms, just how goofy Fairtax was, because of massive impossible "other taxes."


Why not tell us that in books, videos or speeches? 

 They do have massive taxes -- every cancer victim is liable, and there are not exceptions.

Like every city is liable for a 23% tax on wage expenditures.  And pension expenditures. And capital investment expenditures -- in advance.

That's right -- all capital investment expenditures, like a new sewer system, a new library -- is taxed, IN ADVANCE.

We show you that fine print.


 The math, as you will see, is based literally on collecting 100% of these other taxes, no matter how impossible,  how hidden, how unfair.





They do NOT tell you what they tax, in books, not in videos, not in speeches.

What does Fairtax tax?   Do you know?

Retail sales? Yes, for a tiny part. But you have to pay massive other taxes -- far larger taxes -- on top of, in addition to, the retail sales tax.

Did you know that?

No.  You can not possibly know what Fairtax taxes, from their books, videos and speeches.  They never tell you.


Oh, you can find it!

Oh, you can learn what they tax, the way President Bush Tax Panel had to learn -- by finding all their documents,  and reading them all, line by line, footnote by footnote, assumption by assumption.

None of which are in the material they present to the public in their slick presentations.

Yet they claim their plan is "TRANSPARENT".   Really?  No one can possibly know what they tax, from the books, videos and speeches. It's not difficult to know from that information, it is literally impossible to know.

Oh really?

They tell us it's a VERY VERY simple personal retail sales tax, to be paid an "point of purchase".   As Boortz said 100 times, you will see your fed tax on your cash register receipt.

All the example, he gave, and anyone gave, were about that cash register sale.  You buy a coat, pay for lunch, buy a toaster.

Not one example about New York City, and how the city council would owe over 800 million dollars in wage and pension and capital investment expenditures.

IN ADVANCE TAXES - on government "investments".   In a footnote. 


Embedded image permalink

 No exceptions whatsoever.

And their math is based on this.  Their math does NOT show Medicare or Medicaid paying the taxes imposed -- it shows, and says, the person pays it.



Retail?  Yes, they do tax retail purchases. For a small part of Fairtax.  

That retail sales tax is not the problem, at all.  The massive other taxes -- impossible hidden other taxes -- are the problem.



You find NIPA only very cleverly in their "fine print tricks."  Not in books, videos or speeches. This  below, however is one bit of wacko bullshit from their "research" documents.

Just one time, in one of their documents  you never saw.  But they did tell you, sorta. Kinda. In a fraudulent way.

Not just Texas, every state. 

Not just states - but every county, in every state.  Massive taxes on their wage, pension, and operational expenditures.

THEY TOLD YOU, sorta kinda. 


That's in their math -- that's in their fine print -- that's now their math adds up.

Did these lying bastards ever tell you that in a candid way?  Massive other taxes, on top of, in addition to, that sales tax?

They did tell you -- yes they did -- if you read every word very carefully, and some ignored their lies.    They told you in the way frauds tell sucers things, in a slick fraudulent way.




Funny how well intentioned suckers write about Fairtax, and have no clue -- absolutely no clue -- what is in Fairtax "tax base".

Nor can they show you any research.

They know Fairtax has some kind of "retail sales" tax, and add the pompous sounding "at point of purchase"  crap.

Most of Fairtax has no "point of purchase" -- because most of Fairtax is about consumption of things, not purchase.  They pretend cities "consume" wage and pensions!  Yes they do.

They treat all city county and state "expenditures,"  including payroll expenditures, pension expenditures, capital investment expenditures, as "retail sales". 

Embedded image permalink

Tax base = what they tax.  By definition, what is in their tax base, is what they tax.

So unless you know their tax base, YDKS.


According to Bruce Bartlett, former Reagan advisor, he was approached by Scientologist to push Fairtax.   See more below.

No, Huckabee is not "in on the Scientology" fraud.

Huckabee and a few others just adopted the fraud, because it sounds so good.   It worked. He got results.   Not evil, but very clever politically.  

Boortz's book, Fairtax book, is page after page of amazing things.    The problem will be what to do with all the money.

Illegal immigration -- fixed.   Economy, fixed.   All wage earners, 50% average increase in pay. And this is all researched, they told us, including by Harvard researcher Dale Jorgenson.

Really?  Turns out, not so much. 

Social security and Medicare, solved.  On and on.  And on.

If only half of it were true, WOW.  Let's do it!

Huck  said it was the way GOD wanted taxes.

This was the opening of Fairtax web page, until we exposed the fraud. ....


It's like pretending to tax Moonbeams and Baby Farts. 

Taxing all Medicare patients, all city county and states,  etc, is like pretending to tax Moonbeams and Baby Farts. 

No they do NOT  show you they tax moonbeams and baby farts, but they needed to show 3.5 Trillion in revenue.    They do show 3.4 trillion in revenue.

The retail sales tax only brings in 1.4 trillion.

For 2.1 Trillion dollars of their supposed revenue, they may as will said we tax baby farts and moon beams. 


Yes, they tax retail sales. But that's only a small part of what they tax.  No Fairtax book, no Fairtax speech, no Fairtax video, has ever been honest about what they even tax.  

Quite the reverse -- they give the impression they are a very simple tax on retail sales. Personal retail sales. 

As you will see, the tax the state of Texas, a 23% tax on all wages, pensions and operational expenditures, for policemen, firemen, judges, prison personnel, etc etc etc.

If a Texas judge's salary and benefits are 200,000 a year, guess how much Texas is supposed to "remit" for that "expenditure.  About 46,000 dollars. 

Did you know that? Hell no.  Does Texas know that? Hell no.

And that's just the start.

A very very simple retail sales tax -- personal retail sales tax.

Huckabee and others "forgot" to mention that Fairtax is based on 2.1 trillion of impossible goofy taxes they had to hide in the fine print -- we show you where they hid it.

Turns out, that "sales tax"  is a tiny part of Fairtax. 



Steven Hayes, according to Fairtax own web site, is the President of Fairtax.  It is a fund raising system.    A "former" scientologist, he tried to get Bruce Bartlett to sell Fairtax.

Hayes personally goes after the large donors.  Fairtax hustlers don't seem to be trying to pass the fraud, as much as get stupid people to pony up money that goes in their pockets.



Steve Bennett-- an official spokesmen for Fairtax --- admits Fairtax has massive taxes on city county and states. He has to, it's in their fine print, and their math.

That's clear enough, says Bennett. 

City county and states, Bennett stupidly claims, will  readily spot these taxes and send them in.  No, I am not kidding. Bennett said city county and state officials "deal with fine print all the time".

They will see that fine print, they will get the money, and send it in.

How fucking stupid or foolish can Bennett be?  Answer -- that stupid.  

"If they have questions,"  Bennett told me, "they can ask." 


Why have those massive other taxes?
To make their math work on paper.


 Do they really expect NYC to send in 800 million?

Do they really expect the cancer victim on medicare to pay 30 or 40K in fed taxes?

Do they really expect Texas state legislature will send in 15 billion?

Do they really expect Keokuk Iowa to send in 22 million, or whatever it works out to be?

No.  They are not stupid.  Fairtax hustlers are not stupid at all.  They are lying bastards -- they had to include massive other taxes in the fine print, for their math to work. 


 A 100 million dollar city budget, means that city would owe 23 million dollars to the federal government.

Houston Texas, the city council, would owe over 180 million dollars.  And remember, Fairtax cleverly says they "assume" all city county and states will raise their taxes to pay it.

Yes, that's in the fine print.

So HOUSTON must pay over 180 million.  Houston is in Harris County. Harris County too, would owe massive taxes -- over 200 million.  

Harris county is in Texas.  Texas legislature would over over 15 billion.

Try to grasp how goofy this is, because Fairtax bastards never told anyone about this, in a clear way. Houston city council has no clue.
Harris County officials have no clue.

Texas legislature has no clue.

Do you really  think Houston, and all cities, Harris County, and all counties, Texas, and all states, are going to send in massive amounts of money?


BENNETT says it's clear enough 

Yet Bennett -- a nice guy, but apparently he is a lackey, a sucker, to Hayes -- says there is no problem.   All these taxes are very clear, to city county and states.


"They read fine print all the time"  says Bennett, referring to states.   I asked Bennett when they are going to send notices to city county and states.  

Bennett says there is "no need" to explain this further to city county and states.    If they have questions, they can call him. 

Fairtax lying bastards do not even tell city and states where to send these massive amounts of money.  Which department?  

They don't say.   They just say "remit".  

On exactly which "expenditures"  must they pay 23% tax?  They only say "ALL EXPENDITURES"  other than education.  

Just think of that. Your city "expends"  100 million, so your city must "remit"  as Fairtax cleverly says, 23 million to the fed..

And your county.

And your state. It's in their own documents.  Oh, you didnt read all their documents?

Here, this is my surprised look. 

No one told them.  NO ONE TOLD THEM.  Bennett, an official Fairtax spokesmen, admits no one told them -- and get this -- they  have no intention of telling them.

They can just read these very tricky bits of double talk, a few words here, a few there, and then send in the money!

Fairtax is comical farce, actually.   No, those who put this hustle together never intended it to pass.  

So Texas is going to see that double talk, and send in 16  or 18 billion dollars?   Really?

The rest are there to make it hard to notice those 300 words. 


Without exception sounds like a trivial detail  -- oh hell no. 

We "adopt a prepay approach"  is four of those 300 words. 

We "adopt"  a prepay approach, if you can even find that document, mind sound innocuous.

Clever definitions, exposed by President Bush Tax panel.

"CERTAIN WAGES"  are two of the 300 words that matter. 

And in a FOOTNOTE --- let me repeat that -- a FOOTNOTE -- Fairtax "assumes"  all city county and states will pay these massive taxes "in advance".

In advance. IN a footnote.

So, idiot Fairtax think Fairtax is a very very simple personal retail sales tax, but in the fine print are massive goofy and impossible other taxes.

Think Houston will see these footnotes in one document, see the definition of wages in 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?

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

Hard to tell, it might be this guy. 

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

Who paid them?   We don't know!   Might be Steven Hayes.

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.  No, they have NO research, none, on this very very simple personal retail sales tax of 23% to replace all other fed taxes.

They claim they will replace Medicare taxes, Social security taxes, all income taxes, etc etc etc, with this very simple retail sales tax, and they KNOW that's a fucking lie, because they put these massive other taxes -- impossible goofy absurd bullshit other taxes -- in the fine print.

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




In 15 years,  not once, not in any speech, any book, any video, do they even hint at these massive taxes on capital investment expenditures, on wage and pension expenditures.

But -- their math depends on it.  Those are the NIPA based taxes.

How would that work?  And yes, wages and pension "expenditures" are taxed.  Capital investment is taxed -- in advance. Read the fine print!!!

23% or 31%   is not the issue.   How the hell are the wages paid out by all city county and states, a "retail sale"?


Do you even know what NIPA is?

NIPA   is a BFD in Fairtax.  

Nothing is bigger. Nothing.  NIPA is a set of tables Bureau of Economic Activity uses.

Fairtax taxes everything in those tables

In those tables -- all city county and state wages, pensions and capital expenditures.

All "consumption" --- not just purchases.  All "consumption"  of chemo, nursing home care, etc, is in the tax base.

To make their math work, they had to run this scam, this way. 

 Fairtax taxes not just retail sales, but whatever is in those tables.  And there arent 2 Fairtax suckers on earth, that know that.    

They told you -- yes they did. In that document, online. Never told you in the books, never told you in the videos. Never told you in the speeches.

ONLY  -- ONLY -- in the very very clever fine print.

 We show you what they call research....

We offer -- seriously -- 50,000 dollars to the first person who can show 1 page of that 22 million dollars of Fairtax research about this "very very simple" 23% personal retail sales tax that replaces all other fed taxes.

See details bottom of this site.

The retail sales tax is not the problem. That's fine. The massive other "NIPA" based taxes are the problem.


Click here to see their calculator fraud

Don't believe they tax wages, paid out by all city county and states. Oh yes, but they do that so slyly. 

President Bush Tax Panel had  no problem, they eat fine print tricks for breakfast.

But the average sucker never had a chance, even if they found the fine print documents.  Because they never tell their own suckers, in once place, at one time.


Or buy used!!

One of the more vile speeches by Fairtax hustlers, is the speech about "just buy used".  You decide what your fed tax will be!

Ever hear of used chemo? 

Ever hear of used heart bypass surgery?

Ever hear of used rent?

Ever hear of used food?

Ever hear of used prescription drugs?

Thats all taxed.




And remember -- city county and states have to pay Fairtax on wage, pension, operational expenditure.

So how are city, county, and states supposed to avoid it?  Used wages?  Used pensions?  Used capital investments?  All those are taxed too, not just retail sales. 

Do Fairtax hustlers hate cancer victims?

 No, of course not. Nor do they expect to tax the woman above a dime, much less 32,000 dollars.  But they had to put bullshit like that in their hustle, to make the math "work". 

Huck is not the only one that fell for the hustle -- at one time, Fairtax had 100 sponsors in Congress. Hilariously, they never could get this out of "committee" though they ran the committees.

Ever wonder why?   They had both houses of Congress. 100 sponsors. All this research.   And could not get a vote on it, in their OWN committees, with their OWN people in charge.

Here is why -- they knew it was a fraud.   Yes, they always knew. 

Words are important.  

But they never told you about 600 million dollar tax on NYC or a 30,000 tax an a breast cancer victim.


Huck called Fairtax  "a magic wand" .



But Fairtax claims they will replace all other fed taxes.   To replace all other fed taxes, it would take a tax rate of 80-89%.  Not 23.

A federal sales tax of 35% or so, COULD replace all income taxes -- but Fairtax claims they replace all fed taxes.  Remember that. But a 40% sales tax is stupid as hell, and no one is going to pass that.



Fairtax claims it "completely untaxes the poor". 

No, there are no exceptions whatsoever, no matter how rich or poor. Fairtax math is based on that.

Yes, there is a supposed "prebate" -- which would cost 700 billion dollars.  Everyone gets a check -- huge entitlement program, by the way.

But if you have cancer, your fed tax would easily by 40,000 dollars. Your prebate does not change -- it's still 200 a month.

So how the hell is a cancer victim supposed to pay 30 or 40K in fed taxes, with a prebate of 200?

Neal Boortz never told about "tax base"  did he?

Mike Huckabee never mentioned it.    

Operational expenditures for prisons are in the tax base.

Capital expenditures are in the tax base.

Wages paid out by city county and states, are in the tax base.  Tax base = what they tax.

Why not just exempt city county and states? 

 Because if they did, the tax rate would have to be 45-50%.  

Why not exempt health care expenditures?

Because if they did, the tax rate would go to 60-65%.

If they ONLY taxed retail sales, the tax rate would be 80-89%.
When you "exempt"  anything the tax rate has to go up.  Fairtax has 2.1 Trillion dollars of "other taxes"  that have nothing to do with personal retail sales taxes. 



The head of Fairtax hustle -- tried to get Bruce Bartlett to push Fairtax.

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.  

 They love the issue, however.   They love to raise money from suckers, on the basis of being a "very simple" retail sales tax.

As you can see, by the absurd fine print tricks, Fairtax is anything but a simple retail sales tax.


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.



Do you think they "researched"   these absurd other taxes? Did they "research" that all city county and states will send in massive amounts of money on their wage expenditures?

Hell no -- they didn't research it, they never even explained it, but  rather hid it, in a few clever "assumptions" and word tricks.

Quite the opposite of research.

Just these few new hires in the fire department for Mesquite AZ would require that city pay over 200,000 in taxes on their wage expenditures.

Do you think Mesquite AZ is going to send in 200,000 in taxes on the wage expenditures they paid these men? HELL NO.  First of all, Mesquite has no way of knowing.

There is literally no way for any city county or state to even KNOW this, unless they can piece together the hustle -- and no, they are not going to even do that, much less send the money in.

Whoever funded this hustle, paid Beacon Hill to put out clever papers -- they call research.  Bullshit, they can call their dog research, but it's still a dog.

Did Beacon Hill lie? Well, they were very very clever, in their fine print tricks, like their "assumptions" and definitions.

Yes they lied their damn ass off, in terms of misleading you.   But if you read every word, every footnote, every definition very very carefully, you could say they did not lie. You'd be wrong, depending on your definition of lie. 


Where is the research about these massive taxes on city county and states???

Hiding goofy absurdities in your :"research"  documents is quite the opposite of actual research.  



Thats why we have asked for one page of research about this very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

We even offered -- and still do offer -- 50,000 dollars for one page of such research. They  have none. This is a fraud. Your own bs papers hiding the fine print tricks is not research.

The retail tax is not the problem..... the problem, the absurdity, are the massive impossible other taxes, like taxes on city county and states. 



FLAT TAX IS A FRAUD TOO... they won't even put out fine print, tricks or not.  They only have slogans. 

Flat tax is NOT flat. No -- it's not flat at all. The name is flat, they pretend they have a flat tax, but look closely, they fool you too!

Names. Flat tax  is a wonderful name, but the flat tax put out by CATO, Newt Gingrich,  and everyone else, isn't flat.

 That's just the damn NAME.  

Flat tax scam is this -- only certain types of income, will they even call "income"

They don't tax, at all, most of Mitt Romney's income.

Romney himself pointed this out -- and he was correct.  A flat tax (so called) would eliminate almost all his taxes!

That's right, just don't call certain types of income, "income"  Then tell suckers it's flat.

But they will get up there, fool the stupid time after time after time with slogans like this.

See why those lying bastards don't have fine print? At least Fairtax put out fine print -- tricky as hell, lying bastards, but they put out something you can actually see.  Stupid people didn't bother to read it closely, but smart people could if they wanted to.

Flat tax ONLY has slogans.


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


See the part about "total consumption??   Retail sales is only part of that.



Fairtax is like taxing moonbeans and baby farts in the fine print.

It does not matter what words they use -- these other taxes are impossible, and they knew it.    They can no more tax all cancer victims than they can tax moonbeams.





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.

Because Joe  had so much consumption (mostly due to medical consumption) his Fairtax would be 57,000 or more.

But even without that surgery, Joe's fed tax would be 300% higher, under Fairtax.

But even without the medical consumption - if Joe's wife never had a health issue -- his federal tax would STILL be over 20,000 dollars, an increase of 300%


You can't be taxed over 100% of your income. But that's just the point. Fairtax is goofy. Fairtax would indeed, if enacted, depend on millions of people paying more tax they they had income, because millions of people "consume" things like expensive health care.

Do Fairtax hustlers care? No.  They don't expect this fraud to pass, it was never meant to pass.  It's a  hustle, they get people to give them money. 




 If you only taxed retail sales, that could logically and realistically be taxed, the tax rate would be closer to 89%.




Maybe you heard Neal Boortz wants an hour with President Obama to pitch the Fairtax.

Boortz has run this hustle before -- and actually met with President Bush. President Bush had his tax panel study it, and they found what we showed above -- Fairtax is a fraud. They didn't say the word fraud in public, but they did show that without these massive goofy other things "in the tax base" -- the tax rate would need to be 89%


Most absurd -- Fairtax simply gets rid of all funding for social security and medicaid.  Hilarious really.

There are no more tax revenues to fund Social Security, in Fairtax. None. Not one dime.

They just get rid --100% gone -- of all taxes paid into Social Security and Medicaid.  

Don't worry, they claim.  There will be more than enough coming in from general revenue of that "sales tax" pay for everything.

So, how do they pay for social security and medicare - medicaid?   Good question.  

They don't pay for it. 

Where is Fairtax research?

These documents from Beacon Hill are in no way research, and are not about a very simple personal retail sales tax.

Beacon Hill office claim to be an "education organization".  Well if selling you a hustle is educational, okay.

They do public relations, they support whatever they are paid to support.   We show you their very clever documents.  That's were the hustle is -- in their own documents. 

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, was paid by the same  hustlers.

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.


James Bennett-- officially the # 2 man in Fairtax hustle -- insists Fairtax  made these other taxes "perfectly clear".

 Where?  Where did they make it clear?  He won't say.  

 Where did they even mention it one time, in a candid way?   It's only in a few words  here and there.   Here is their definition of a person --   

 Bennet claims this definition -- right here

 Way way way down in a long list of silly definitions...  is this definition.  And enough notice to all city county and states to send in massive taxes...... Remember, this is what Bennett himself calls "the legal basis" for these massive other taxes.


That word -- "government" -- in that definition of a person, is the legal basis, according to James Bennett for all these other taxes.  Let that sink in.  That ONE WORD is the "legal basis".  

Bennett also told us Fairtax has "no plans"  to further inform city county and states about this.  "If they have questions, they can contact me"  said Bennett.   
If you don't believe me  -- contact Bennett yourself!
Bennett is either an idiot, or got sucked into the hustle.  We don't think he is an idiot.   Normal folks would know, that a definition deep down in some double talk is NOT  the same a notice to 20,000 cities, 5 thousand counties, and all 50 states, to give them actual rational notice of these nearly trillion dollars in taxes city county and states would have to pay.  But James said this was "plenty of notice"  and that Fairtax has no plans to explain it further.   Stupid? Or did James catch a ride on the Fairtax Cult bus? 



Huckabee pushed the Fairtax  for years -- and still claims it's "biblical". To be fair to Huck, he probably has no clue what's in the fine print. 

In his statement about Fairtax, he claims he read HR25 and talked to "economists", apparently those "economists"  from Beacon Hill.

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.

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.  

He of course never showed you any of what we show.   He never showed you how a cancer victim, whose entire income might be 20K a year, could, would, or should, pay 50K in taxes on their consumption of health care.



It's easy to miss.   David Kendall, who used to push Fairtax enthusiastically,  and is a PhD, had no clue either.  

Tax wages?   Tax capital expenditure?  No no no, David  said. He insisted he studied Fairtax carefully.   They just tax personal retail consumption.

So we showed him the massive other taxes.


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!
