    That’s a shame. He is a stalwart in the drive to end tyranny by the IRS and install the “fair tax” as a fair and equitable form of taxation. Shame it’s not guys like self serving pols like Rangel and Schumer retiring instead.

    Fair tax= freedom for YOU to decide how to keep or spend your money, not pols.
