Fair tax

What happens when people hold on to their money? If no one spends enough, do we just stop funding education, rebuilding highways, or funding the military? This sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. In a down economy with high unemployment I don't see this as a reliable way to generate necessary revenue.

This is how larger communities have been dealing with this issue. It is not extreme. It is not a token--it is doing what you can do. Evolve your thinking past a $4 dollar increase per month or the storage of the containers.
