Why is it a separate discussion if we were talking about consumption taxes, Bob? That's what the fair tax is. It also includes a government subsidy for low income people.

     Denise, You're talking about junking the entire tax code and substituting a specific other tax plan for it.  That requires the axis of conversation to shift to the new tax plan.  If others feel that discussion is important enough to have, you and they should by all means do so.  This conversation, it seems to me, merely touched upon consumption taxes as one part of the revision of the tax plan that most of us are looking at, which includes revisions in income and spending and, especially, some of the unfair elements of designer tax breaks for individual companies and for specific people..

     Nothing wrong with your wish to discuss your topic if enough people want to take it up, even here in this space, I guess, but since you asked, these are my thoughts on the matter.

     If anybody else has thoughts, I'm interested to hear them as well.

I think the new tax plan would solve ALL the problems with the current one, that's why I brought it up.
