Fearless Philosophy For Free Minds: Where the Candidates Stand on the Fair Tax

Where the Candidates Stand on the Fair Tax

Rather than rehashing my reasons for supporting the Fair Tax, I thought it would be good to find where the 2008 presidential candidates stand. You may notice that some notable candidates are not listed here; the reason is because I haven’t found any public statements by these candidates on the Fair Tax one way or the other. Others that I have listed under Considering the Fair Tax, the Flat Tax, or other “tax reform” have either stated they want to remove the income tax (but haven’t mentioned the Fair Tax by name) or haven’t made up their minds on the Fair Tax. With enough pressure, I think some of these candidates can be swayed.

I can remember watching C-Span one day and a gentleman asked Sam Brownback if he was prez and the Fair Tax came to his desk would he sign it. He did say yes. Maybe his position has changed or something.

Thanks for the LLR. I did a quick web search and found that Sen. Brownback is supporting the Flat Tax. I have since updated the post to reflect this.

You left off one of the biggest supporters of the FairTax - Mike Huckabee.
