INCOME TAX TO BE REPLACED THIS YEAR?

"Hastert spokesman John Feehery said the speaker's choice reflected his satisfaction with the job Dreier has done and not dissatisfaction with Linder. He said Hastert wants Linder to focus on his years-long effort to replace the federal income tax with a national sales tax."

"Linder on Tuesday reintroduced legislation to create the national sales tax. President Bush has announced he will make tax reform one of his major second-term goals."

WILL SPEAKER HASTERT REPLACE THE IRS THIS YEAR?

I KNOW THAT HASTERT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME PROPONENT OF REPLACING THE IRS AND INCOME TAX WITH A NATIONAL SALES TAX... BUT I HAD NO IDEA THAT THIS WAS EVEN ON THE AGENDA IN 2005! THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR THOSE OF US WHO THINK THE INCOME TAX SYSTEM IS BLATENTLY UNFAIR AND SEPARATES AMERICANS INTO VARIOUS ECONOMICLY-INDUCED CLASSES.

IF BUSH CAN GET REFORM SOCIAL SECURITY AND INSTITUTE A NATIONAL SALES TAX IN HIS SECOND TERM, HE WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PRESIDENTS EVER...
