The Five Big Lies

The FairTax Five

The gloves are off as critics try to pick apart the FairTax. Trouble is, it’s just a replay of the same five FairTax myths:

“The 23% rate is misleading. It’s actually 30%.”

“It’s not enforceable and evasion will be rampant.”

“It will not be revenue neutral at 23%.”

“The FairTax is not politically viable.”

“The FairTax is regressive and shifts the tax burden onto lower and middle income people.”
