Abolish the IRS
Americans are more concerned than ever before about jobs and their financial well-being, and those concerns are well-founded. As a nation, we simply can't afford to continue borrowing 20 cents out of every dollar we spend, and we can’t afford a tax system that picks winners and losers -- and penalizes productivity at every turn. As the saying goes, when you tax something, you end up with less of it. In America, we tax earnings, savings and capital gains. That needs to change.
Likewise, thanks to a massive tax code created by lobbyists, special interests and their friends in Washington, DC, virtually every aspect of our financial lives is governed by the IRS and its thousands of government enforcers -- enforcers that we now know are not above targeting individuals and groups they don’t like.
It doesn’t have to be that way. The Our America Initiative, led by Honorary Chairman Gary Johnson, advocates abolishing the IRS and replacing it with a simple system of collecting necessary government revenues when money is spent, not when it is earned. Shifting to a revenue-neutral consumption tax will put earners and businesses back in control. Taxes won’t be withheld from paychecks. Instead, they will only be paid when an individual or business spends money, and except for a “prebate” to exempt spending for basic necessities, EVERYONE will pay the same rate.
No winners. No losers. Just a simple tax that is not only fair, but which creates incentives to earn, save and invest. And by eliminating all the loopholes, benefits, etc., we won’t need a massive IRS. Also, half the lobbyists and special interests in Washington will probably disappear.
The President and Congress love to talk about creating jobs, yet they cling to a tax system that almost seems designed to kill jobs and opportunity. Eliminating income taxes on employers and employees alike will create more jobs than any “stimulus” the politicians can ever come up with.
Sign the petition today and let the politicians know that its time to abolish the IRS and the corrupt tax system it enforces.
