Hero Huckabee latest On-Line Tax Revolt March Leader

Former Arkansas Governor, Presidential candidate, author and FOX and ABC News commentator Mike Huckabee became the latest leader in a growing list of local and national figures joining the on-line tax revolt march on Washington, D.C. "Our Tax system is broken, beyond the point where the twist of a screw driver or tap of the hammer will make a difference. The whole thing needs to be overhauled or better yet it may be time to trade it in completely for something that works. Whether or not you support the FAIR TAX like I do, or a FLAT TAX or some other type of reform, you probably agree that what we have needs to go. I invite you to join me and hopefully millions of others by signing up for the online tax revolt. It is time that we work together to send a message to Washington that we are fed up with the status quo. This April 15th let your voice be heard and your opinion be counted and join me in this online tax revolt sign up today at"

FairTax News

AOL Politics is running the following editorial by FairTax National Victory Campaign Chairman, Ken Hoagland. You can see it here on FairTax Friday:

A Tax Rebellion is Brewing: by Ken Hoagland

In a little over a month Americans will have to again file their tax returns and many will once again be reminded that no other public policy so reinforces a perception of self-dealing, unfairness and incompetence as the corrupted federal income tax code.

Bloated beyond decipherability at 67,500 pages of regulations, the income tax system is driven by personal power, lobby profits and, through tax inducements and penalties, a changing menu of citizen and business manipulation.

It's so complicated that both the Secretary of the Treasury and the Chairman of the Congressional Committee writing tax laws got their own tax returns wrong. Just obeying federal tax laws costs taxpayers more than $300 billion a year in compliance costs and the system comes up $350 billion short annually of what is actually owed. It's so unfair that Warren Buffet's salary-earning secretary pays a higher tax rate than her billionaire boss.

Married people pay higher rates than singles living together, income is commonly double and tripled taxed, and Congress' error in failing to index the Alternative Minimum Tax for inflation now threatens to define as "wealthy" those with as little as $80,000 annual income. Somehow, in a country that defined the separation of church and state, the tax code is so intrusive that pastors are told what they can and can't say from the pulpit.

And while millions of Americans suffer unemployment and our economy is struggling to recover, the tax code self-destructively gives foreign competitors significant producer cost advantages over American companies. It gets worse--small American businesses, the hope for employment growth, suffer $700 compliance costs for every $100 in taxes paid according to recent studies and every new hire requires significant new FICA taxes.
