    Finally. True Conservatism is starting to push through. I liked Bush for his stance on Terror but he has been anything but conservative with money. This is a HUGE step in the right direction.

    This is Hasterts doing, right? I didn't read anything about Bush being behind it, or is this one of those 'behind the scenes' deal?

    Hassert is pushing but Bush is promoting. Truthfully its the Congress that runs this country anyway. Always has been. always will be.

    Indeed. It needs total support from a Republican senate though to pass. Dems will NEVER go for this and i beleive some Reps won't either. Thats why this election is important. You'll only get a few chances to make a BIG difference in this country. Getting rid of the ridiculous IRS is one of them.

    Think about how much money in payroll, benefits and overhead will be reduced from the budget by eliminating the IRS. We could probably delete another dozen or so useless entities while we're at it.

    I'm all for a 17% flat tax. I would only go for a national sales tax if they repealed the 16th (?) amendment legalizing income taxes. I can just see a 5% nat'l sales tax put into place by the GOP, then when the Dems get back into power, putting the income tax back into place.

    Need to make it so that its one or the other. Whatever wording they need, they have to do that or else it could be a field day for Dems if they regained power.

    Drudge report? What's funnier is you probably think it's a legit news source.
