    The Fairtax is better than the Flat Tax.

    But, just for the sake of argument, how exactly would RG cut taxes? Methinks his mouth is writing checks ...... etc etc.

    He would, if elected, propose tax cuts to congress, getting specific bills started through Representatives supportive of his plan as well as Senators. In the end though Congress controls the purse strings.

    Any objective review of Reagan and Bush tax cuts will show you they work when thought out and passed with specific goals.

    Given how Dems want to raise taxes by $400 billion, the choice is clear

    Hillary or Rudy

    BTW I also bag on those democrats that criticize the "Bush Tax Cuts" when we know it was Congress all along. So, the comments were not personal.

    Until people get as mad as they did over the immigration flap and flood the congressional switchboard to the point it crashes.... no changes, just more of the same.

    Real economic conservatives want to END the redistribution of wealth that the progressive income tax attempts to accomplish.

    The flat tax is one answer to that.

    The choice between Rudy and Hillary is: Liberal or Liberal-er

    RG not being in favour of a flat tax isn't particularly relevant because Congress will not pass it if (when?) he is President.

    So why advocate it?

    You could say the same thing regarding A LOT of issues, but it doesn't mean we should shut up about them.
