Herman Cain schooled Bill Clinton back in 1994 on Hillarycare. Watch the linked video.
The real kicker is that Herman now admits that he was targeted by the IRS for a detailed audit after this appearance and was scrutinized by them for several years. It cost him a lot of money for legal and financial advice during that time. The end result: The IRS found nothing wrong.
These heavy-handed moves have been around as long the IRS has been in existence. And as evidenced by their recent targeting of conservative groups in order to silence them prior to election, it has not lessened through the years. So how do you remove this beast from the garden?
Enact the FairTax!
Remember; the only new tax proposal with any merit that eliminates the IRS is the FairTax.
It is also the only tax idea that completely eliminates taxes for those at the poverty level or below through its prebate program. Did you know that people at the poverty level or below still pay income taxes today? Sure they do. Every single item they buy has embedded income taxes. That's because every company that has a hand in producing that item added their cost of income taxes to the cost of said goods. On average, that amount is 22%. So 22% of the cost of every item (food, clothing, energy, etc.) you buy today goes to cover the income taxes for every company that helped produce those goods. The FairTax eliminates all those embedded taxes on all those different layers of production.
So, what is the prebate? Every single person gets a check from the government each month that equals the consumption taxes that person will pay up to the poverty level. This completely untaxes the poor or retirees on low fixed incomes.
