EVERY citizen receives the rebate of the tax on poverty level spending (which makes the effective tax rate progressive), not just the poor. If the FairTax were raised to 62%, but as long as you receive a rebate on that tax on poverty level (based on family size) spending, the effective tax rate is just MORE progressive. Since every citizen receives the "prebate" and is allowed to effect their tax rate by their consumption choices the same way, it is equally applied to all citizens, while non-citizens would effectively pay the full rate on new goods and services purchased while they are in the U.S. How is that not fair?
As an aside, I would suggest a maximum effective tax rate of 50% (or 100% of cost) on goods or services that have been proven to be hazardous or harmful, because anything more than that, IMHO, makes gray and black markets profitable rather than discouraging consumption.)
What is the fruit of this teaching? Are you teaching and practicing lawlessness? Are you teaching no difference between clean and unclean? Are you scattering the sheep? Are you accusing falsely? Is your "profile" or "cheat sheet" pointing to a wide gate that leads to destruction?
