FairTax.org is running full-page ads today in several newspapers promoting a national sales tax to replace the complicated and burdensome income tax.
"We're just saying in print what a lot of Americans feel -- the FairTax can solve the economic crisis," said FairTax.org spokesman Ken Hoagland.
If the U.S. is looking for a real stimulus to jump-start the economy, a national retail sales tax is the way to go, the group argues.
"The United States becomes the most favorable business climate in the world when we eliminate corporate and capital gains taxes," Hoagland said. "That means job creation, capital formation and a stock market that goes up in stead of down.Even better, the positive effects of the FairTax are almost immediate."
