    Just thought it would be interesting to establish the misleading and inaccurate information given by the ringleaders of H.R. 25 to gain the unsuspecting support of Mary and Joe Six-pack who were encourage to show up for two rallies promoting H.R. 25.


    Under the Neal Boortz fairy tale version of H.R. 25, Mary and Joe Six-pack were told that the 23 percent tax calculated from the American people’s property, real and personal, will “replace…virtually all taxes with one national retail sales tax.” [see: Today's Nuze: October 18, 2004]


    Under the grassfire.org’s fairy tale version of H.R. 25, Mary and Joe Six-pack were told that H.R. 25, a 23 percent tax calculated from the American people’s property, real and personal, “would eliminate the IRS and replace every current federal tax”[see: grassfire.org]


    And, under the fairtax.org’s fairy tale version of H.R. 25, Mary and Joe Six-pack were told that H.R. 25, a 23 percent tax calculated from the American people’s property, real and personal, “replaces the income tax and all other federal taxes with a national consumption tax.” [see: fairtax.org]]

    So, does H.R. 25 replace all federal taxes with one 23 percent tax calculated from the American People’s property, real and personal as Mary and Joe Six-pack were told by the ringleaders promoting H.R. 25?

    Seems to me the ringleaders are telling Mary and Joe Six-pack a fairy tale because H.R. 25, by its very language under Sec. 302 creates a new federal agency, called the "Excise Tax Bureau"!

    SEC. 302. ADMINISTRATION OF OTHER FEDERAL TAXES.

    (d) Excise Tax Bureau- There shall be in the Department of the Treasury an Excise Tax Bureau to administer those excise taxes not administered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.


    So, does the language of H.R. 25 replace “ the income tax and all other federal taxes with a national consumption tax.” as Neal Boortz and others have told us?

    Let’s get to the facts and truth and stop creating a fairy tale version of H.R. 25 like Neal Boortz and other ringleaders of the proposal are doing.

    Fact is, the proposed 23 percent tax to be calculated from the American people’s property is a tax proposed which will be in addition to any and all excise taxes which Congress may decide to lay upon businesses, corporations, occupations and individuals which may be calculated from profits, gains, salaries and other “income” derived under the subject matter an excise tax may be laid, and, this is in addition to existing excise taxes which are now collected by the BATF.

    Be cautious of the Fairy Tale version of H.R. 25 which Neal Boortz and others are feeding you.

    Want real tax reform? Then work to demand our employees add the following words to our Constitution:

    "The Sixteenth Amendment is hereby repealed and Congress is henceforth forbidden to lay ``any`` tax or burden calculated from profits, gains, interest, salaries, wages, tips, inheritances or any other lawfully realized money"

    The above words, if added to our Constitution, would in fact make the Neal Boortz Fairy Tale version of H.R. 25 a reality!
