This week's Chairman's Report features an economics professor, David Kendall. Seventeen years ago, he wrote to the newly formed President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform urging them to adopt the FAIRtax. Eighty professional economists endorsed the letter, but the Panel paid them no attention. Seventeen years later, the FAIRtax is still the best replacement for the Federal income tax.

It's a simple truth. If you want more of something, reward it. If you want less of something, punish it. In this week's Chairman's Report, we clearly see how the income/payroll tax system punishes labor, while the FAIRtax would reward it.

An article in the Wall Street Journal points out that many wealthy people are financing big purchases by borrowing against the value of their capital investments rather than selling them. This has prompted the bureaucrats to propose even more complicated changes to the tax code to deal with this "grave injustice".

Congressmen Mike Kelly and John Lewis tried to turn the IRS from an adversary into a resource for taxpayers. Unfortunately, they weren't successful. They made a good faith effort, but like putting lipstick on a pig, you just can't change something by dressing it up. The IRS is still a dysfunctional agency tasked with an impossible mission. The only way to make it better is to get rid of it. And the only way to do tha...
