“You Need to Make the Tax System Fair, So Everybody Pays Their Fair Share.”
Joe Biden told Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Monday, “We’re both members of the cracked heads club.” Always able to multitask, the Vice President labeled you and me terrorists. But our focus is on his statement to CBS:
“The American people and the people here understand you need to make the tax system fair, so everybody pays their fair share. You need to do something about long-term structural entitlements, so you can preserve them, at the same time make them feasible over the next 30 years. And you need to cut discretionary spending, without eating your seed corn, so you can’t grow the economy through innovation and infrastructure.”
Do they ever define fair? No. How is it we have had an income tax for 98 years and it is still not fair. If we stand aside and let them make it fair this year or next, will it stay fair? To be fair, wouldn’t “fair” be equal? Yes fair is actually equal. If they “spread the wealth around” and some of us have more—that is not fair!
Here is a better way to look at “Fair.” It is the Fair Tax. Learn all about it here. Don’t have time? Herman Cain explains it in under two minutes:
